Hello,

Thanks in advance for the help.

I had some problems with the a.exe, b.exe, c.exe malware over the past couple of weeks. I run Avira(free), Ad-Aware, and windows firewall, but these seemed to slip past them more than once. I thought I was dealing with them by hunting the files down and deleting manually. Silly me.

What really got me worried was when my browsers started redirecting me from search page results. So I downloaded MalwareBytes, ran it, and it found 68 (or somesuch) entries of concern. I let it do its thing, rebooted, and found that the browser was still redirecting. Ran MB again, and it found these two entries:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\wuauserv\ImagePath (Hijack.WindowsUpdates) -> Bad: (%fystemroot%\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs) Good: (%SystemRoot%\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs) -> No action taken.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\BITS\ImagePath (Hijack.WindowsUpdates) -> Bad: (%fystemRoot%\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs) Good: (%SystemRoot%\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs) -> No action taken.

I've deleted them several times with no luck. And the browser is still redirecting (Opera9, IE8, and Safari).

So, hoping you can help, here are the requested log files.

Thanks again.
