I'm new to the world of these nefarious infections and I'm floundering, so forgive my ineptitude at describing what is going on:

1. I'm unable to access the gmail login page. Error message:

Failed to Connect

Firefox canít establish a connection to the server at http://www.google.com.
Though the site seems valid, the browser was unable to establish a connection.

* Could the site be temporarily unavailable? Try again later.
* Are you unable to browse other sites? Check the computerís network connection.
* Is your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy? Incorrect settings can interfere with Web browsing.

2. I can't access using either Firefox or IE7

3. I can access login page with a neighbor's computer.

4. I can access all other google pages. When I get onto the google help forum, I can negotiate all pages, except when I click on the "Post a question" link I get the same error message as above.

5. When I try to get to the igoogle.com site I get this message:

Redirect Loop

Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

The browser has stopped trying to retrieve the requested item. The site is redirecting the request in a way that will never complete.

* Have you disabled or blocked cookies required by this site?
* NOTE: If accepting the siteís cookies does not resolve the problem, it is likely a server configuration issue and not your computer.

6. Doing a google search for gmail, and then clicking on that link, I get sent to bullz-eye.com via a "relevantwebsite.com" site.

What I run:
Firefox 3/ IE7
wireless router
AVG free

What I've done:

1. I can access/navigate symantec, mcaffee and trendmicro sites
2. I've done Spybot
3. I've done Dr. Web- 0 results.
4. I've done Malwarebytes, as ordered, cleaned up 9 things, rebooted and here is the notepad result:

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.36
Database version: 2130
Windows 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3

I've done ATF
I've scanned with SAS in safemode. The scan was completed but got a message I don't understand:

Delayed write failed. error caused by a failure of computer hardware or network connection

And I can't open the log file

You have a log posted in our HJT forum, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits
