I have had topics posted in the following forums and I have been requested to start a new topic here.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/212199/searchalligatorcom/

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/223297/searchalligatorcom-redirect/



I have totally wiped the hard drive (filling the drive with random 1 or zeroes dd if=/dev/random of = /dev/hda)

Installed windows XP using only the drivers supplied by DELL

Performed Windows Updates from Microsoft.

The
redirect to search alligator.com occurs when a bad url or a search term
is entered in the address bar of a browser (Firefox, Chrome or IE).
The default search engine for all of these browsers is www.google.com.

The redirect only occurs when using a wireless connection with the 3945abg.

The redirect does not occur when using another wireless adapter.

The redirect does not occur when using a hard wired Ethernet connection.



I have ran Spybot, Adaware, Malwarebytes and Prevx and all of the reccommeded spyware removal tools in the previously mentioned forum posts - no spyware has been detected.

I have ran Sophos and Clamav Antivirus products and no virii have been detected.


The redirect occurs independent of the wireless network in which I connect.

additionally I have installed a freshly imaged hard drive from DELL and was able to operate normally with my hardware and the stock drivers from the Intel website - so the problem is not hardware related


I was requested to download and run DDS - the results are embedded below:

any suggestions ?

Hello

While we understand your frustration at having to wait, please note that Bleeping Computer deals with several hundred requests for assistance such as yours on a daily basis. As a result, our backlog is quite large as are other comparable sites that help others with malware issues. Although our HJT Team members work on hundreds of requests each day, they are all volunteers who work logs when they can and are able to do so. No one is paid by Bleeping Computer for their assistance to our members.

Further, our malware removal staff is comprised of team members with various levels of skill and expertise to deal with thousands of malware variants, some more complex than others. Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another. In either case, neither of us want someone to assist you who is not familiar with your issue and attempt to fix it.

We ask that once you have posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your thread or make further replies until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The reason we ask this or do not respond to your requests is because that would remove you from the active queue that Techs and Staff have access to. The malware 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.

That is why I have made an edit to your last post, instead of a reply. Please do not multiple post here, as that only pushes you further down the queue and causes confusion to the staff.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible.

Thank you for understanding.

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.


Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
