I've got a virus that is pretty nasty. It's causing some pretty typical "virus removal" pop ups, so I went about trying to remove it like I normally would. Ran some Hijack This, looked for bad files on my Task Manager, etc. I found the file, which is named ati2evxx.dll. So when I went about trying to remove it, it seems to have mutated and become worse. NOW it seems to affect even my searches on Yahoo and Google. I went to Yahoo and typed in that file name specifically. All but about one or two of my search results were junk sites. So I went to Google to see if Google was still working. It was. Then, stupidly, I typed in the file name again. It affected Google similarly--in fact, I got the same junk results. This is now the case for every search I do for Yahoo and Google, regardless of what the topic is. (I've since used Dogpile, but don't worry--I've learned my lesson.)
I have an mbam log that I'll post if someone wants to see it. It found a ton of junk that I'd overlooked.
Anyway, does anyone have any tips? I'd really appreciate any help I can get.
