Long story short:
Work computer slowed down
When left clicked Google & Yahoo search links are redirected to ad sites & pop ups with "warning your PC is infected download our scanner now!"
Yahoo Messenger password no longer being accepted as valid
Reported my account may have been compromised,
Found out my account no longer existed, lost all contacts.

Ran AVG scan, many threats being found
4 hrs into first full system scan - blue screen of death
error purported to be a driver failure
Blue screen happened at 5pm so I left computer shut down & went home

Tried to solve problem again next day:
Computer booted, yay!
Started AVG full system scan
Captured redirect address on hijacked links
Found out windowsclick.com is the culprit
Googled windowsclick.com
(right click to open in new tab still goes to correct website)
Read forums giving advice on how to fix problem
Attempted to download & install:
  • Malwarebytes < downloaded & installed but won't launch
  • Spybot SD < downloaded & installed but won't launch
  • SuperAntiSpyware < downloaded & won't install
  • HiJackThis < able to run a scan!!!
I didn't fix anything cause I didn't know what to keep & what to lose:

The first scan mentioned that a firefox.exe was infected so I uninstalled Firefox, and just to be safe I also uninstalled Opera. Posting this from IE.

Hello! :thumbup2:
My name is Sam and I will be helping you.

In order to see what's going on with your computer I'll ask for you to post various logs from the tools that we will use to resolve your issue. Please also share with me any information about how your computer is reacting and behaving each step of the way as we work through this process.



Please download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3

Important!
You should NOT use Combofix unless you have been instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert.
It is intended by its creator to be used under the guidance and supervision of an Malware Removal Expert, not for private use.
Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.



Make sure that you save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop
  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools

  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.

  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.

  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

Posted Image


Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.
Posted Image If I have helped you in any way, please consider a donation to help me continue the fight against malware.


Failing to respond back to the person that is giving up their own time to help you not only is insensitive and disrespectful, but it guarantees that you will never receive help from me again. Please thank your helpers and there will always be help here when you need it!
