I downloaded a .rar from RapidShare a few days ago and extracted it; scanned it before the extraction and the files after.

No malware. A little later when I'm back online, Firefox keeps re-directing Google Searches to spam/adware sites.

:flowers:

Figured it was no biggy, ran AVG, Trojan Remover and Spybot in Safe Mode; only found tracking cookies.

Downloaded Avira, MalwareBytes, ran scans again - no dice.

Downloaded CCleaner and ATF-Cleaner, cleaned out everything but the Recycle Bin.

Uninstalled and re-installed barebones IE8 and Firefox.

Still no change! :thumbsup:

What can be done? :trumpet:

Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

I wouldn't waste anymore time in this particular forum. I would submit a HJT log


Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.
