I turned Avira off, instlled another antivirus, IObit Security 360, and it found and sent to quarantine:
Mal/Gen.Trace, File, C:\Windows\system32\GroupPolicy000.dat, 4-10519
And several like this, with the name of the dll file slightily different for each:
Redosdru.AH, File, C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository\prnep001.inf_f0a9a372\I386\EP0LVR1C.DLL, 12-173
In addition, when I opened Firefox, it had no trouble opening my home page, but also automatically opened up Internet Explorer to a page purporting to be an antivirus site of some kind. I finally stopped that from happening by turning on popup blocker on both Firefox and IE.
Lastly, when I open Google, and do a search for removing the Trojan, any link I click on takes me somewhere else, not where I am trying to go. However, when I copy and paste the link into the browser address bar, I can go to whatever page I want. Something has hijacked my ability to click on links in a Google search, but doesn't stop me from manually going anywhere.
I've run thorough scans with Spybot Search and Destroy, and AdAware, and cleaned whatever it found. I tried to go to Trend Micro to do HouseCall, but using one of their kernel options it fails to download the files, and when I try to have it search for another kernel it tells me that java is not enabled but I definitely have Java enabled.
I will attach the DDS log, but I could not run the RootRepeal. I got what looks like a registry error when I tried to run the reports, so I'll put that error.
And then I will put my HijackThis log, and the HijackThis Startup log. I hope someone can assist me with a solution other than formatting my hard drives.
Main hard drive is C, but I also have a few others attached to the system as well.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
