I began noticing some odd browser behavior 2 days ago with regards to google... I'd google a topic, and then click one of the links returned (in this specific case it was Edmonds Yost -- which is a public pool near my city). When I then tried to navigate to the page google returns, I'd be directed/jumped to another page, not the one google was pointing to. I've been running clamwin, but i started up SpyBot and it reported that I have pwd.ldpinchie; after doing a bit more research I ran HijackThis, and noticed an odd looking DLL named...gfs83iuijid.dll.
Also of note, regedit had been turned off by something other than me -- I found a way to turn it back on, but each time i reboot it is off again when I check. I'm also not able to boot into safe mode, when I try it stalls out after loading a few dozen DLLs.
At this point, I'm reluctant to connect the infected computer to the internet again -- I'm posting this from my work computer. Given that, I can't get the name of the site that I'm getting redirected too - I didn't save it.
I apologize I realize after better reading the forum directions that I should not have posted this Hijack log before being requested to do so, but I did already post one here : http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/238344/gfs83iuijiddll-and-pwdldpinchie/
Advice or suggestions? I'm guessing I might need something more industrial strength than clamwin -- which I don't think caught these issue(s) before they infected me.
