I did the research on our forum and follow 3 different posts with similar resolved issues and I am still getting the same problem. So here I am with my own post.

Win XP SP 3
IE 8
Dr. Web curit

1. It started a few days ago with the "Antivirus Pro Alert", issues with pop ups and fake alerts. The fake alerts and pop ups was resolved by installing the "Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware" program.

2. After that I started noticing that my search results were always the same, no matter what subject I searched in Yahoo, Google or MSN I will get something like "www.toseeka.org, mycoupons.com,etc..." on the search page.

3. I tried several other remedies from similar posts and I am still having the same problem...not sure which virus, malware or whatever is on my system...please advice.

Hi Tony Tsai, and :thumbsup: to BleepingComputer!

Lets see if we can find a cause for your problems!

Please install RootRepeal
Note: Vista users ,, right click on desktop icon and select "Run as Administrator."
  • Go HERE and download RootRepeal.zip to your Desktop.
  • Unzip that, (7-zip tool if needed) and then click RootRepeal.exe to open the scanner.
  • Next click on the Report tab, now click on Scan. A Window will open asking what to include in the scan. Check all of the below and then click OK.
    • Drivers
    • Files
    • Processes
    • SSDT
    • Stealth Objects
    • Hidden Services
  • Now you'll be asked which drive to scan. Check C: and click OK again and the scan will start. Please be patient as the scan runs. When the scan has finished, click on Save Report.
  • Name the log RootRepeal.txt and save it to your Documents folder (it should automatically save it there).
Please copy and paste that into your next reply.

regards, Elise
