Alright hi there guys. I'm just having some problems wiping the tracks the virus left. Ive done a malware bytes scan, then a super anti spyware, then A-Squared, then Avria scans...
None of them have found it after the initial removal.
The problems are:
My task manager is disabled...
None of the tricks Ive found are working, tried the run commands
taskmgr.exe
cmd.exe
Both failed.
Tried doing the rename trick...just named the file named
TASKMAN to "something.exe"
Failure. As soon as a I rename either file it creates another task manager named taskman.

I have three other tracks.
Both involving my browser.
1. Gala has been rerouting my searches.
2. Some webpages repeatedy "could not be loaded" like gmail for example will not load at all.
3. Redirection. Sometimes when I click links I get "Redirecting, 3 seconds"
1. I reinstalled firefox and that seems to have fixed the Gala issue.
2. Still acting up
3. I have yet to see whats on the other end of the redirection I always back up and use the Web pages URL instead. Can't Risk any more viruses.

Oh and I should mention I don't even know where the option to run in safe mode is but going to guess its probably disabled.

Update mbam and run a FULL scan
Please post the results

Then run this

Please download Dr.Web CureIt, the free version & save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on launch.exe to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
  • Read the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.
  • The Express scan will automatically begin.
    (This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).
  • If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.
  • If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All.
  • When complete, click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
    (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • Now put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.
  • In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and UNcheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • When the scan is complete, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click "Yes to all" if asked to cure or move the file(s) and select "Move incurable".
  • In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)
Run in normal mode if you cannot get into safe mode

Before you replied I took the liberty of checking out the site and trying some of the other tools you have hanging around.
I have some logs I'll post after I do the Dr. Cureit thing...
The logs I have are:
Attach
DDS
GMER
GooredFix (forget where I found this though)
HijackThis (although I don't think it was a complete log)
MBAM Log (Quick Scan, Found 1 Detection)
RSIT

I'll post all the logs after I do the previous instructions

Nothing jumps out on me

Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.

There will also be instructions to create a Root Repeal Log

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

The HJT team is very busy and it will take awhile to get to your post
Please be patient and good luck
