Hello All,
i am getting help from a kind member DaChew at this thread:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/237752/oh-my-god-i-think-im-infected-with-a-rootkit-pls-help/
and everything will be fine soon.

Im just trying to figure out how this sudden 'browser hijack using google' is happening, what can we do to stay safe?

Im using firefox with no-script extension.
I have installed USB Disk Security on my computer, and it not only makes folders called AUTORUN.INF in all drives, it also makes them in your USB drives, so another virus cannot hop on and make a similar named folder.

So im trying to figure out, if it isint USB stick (perhaps), then what is the hole?
I havent opened any email attachments, and i dont visit porn sites etc. (well not for a few months, :thumbsup: )

Any ideas what to lookout for, so that the burden on you amazing helping guys is reduced?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
