Hi, whenever I use google from the toolbar, it redirects me to "anti-virus" pages, or shopping pages.
I deleted (hopefully?) a lot of stuff (trojans) with AVG and Prevx, but this still remains.
Also, computer takes a long time to start up and shut down, and firefox takes forever to open.

Hello :(

Install Recovery Console and Run ComboFix

Download Combofix from any of the links below, and save it to your desktop.

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3
  • Close/disable all anti-virus and anti-malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix. Refer to this page if you are not sure how.
  • Close any open windows, including this one.
  • 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.
  • If you did not have it installed, you will see the prompt below. Choose YES.

    Posted Image
  • Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.
  • When finished, it will produce a report for you. Please post the contents of the log (C:\ComboFix.txt).
Leave your computer alone while ComboFix is running.

Thank you. I am at work, and will try this when I get home (about 10-11 hours).

I have a good friend from Finland.

Ok, here's the log. I wasn't sure if you wanted me to copy paste or attach, so I did both.
Here's the problems I'm having:
Google redirect, but not from the google home page, only from the toolbar in firefox.
Firefox crashes a lot if I have more than 2-3 windows open.
Yesterday, everytime I clicked a link in firefox, a new window would open, from earthlink, saying a file couldn't be found. When I logged on today, that problem seemed to be gone.

I haven't been to Finland, or any of Scandinavia for that matter. Have you been to the US?

Thanks again for your help.

Ok. The logs are looking better.

You are missing one important program on that computer: An antivirus.
This is somewhat suicidal in today's digital world.
You need to install an antivirus program as soon as you can and run a complete scan of the computer:Install it and then run a full scan. Let it quarantine/delete anything it finds. Let me know if there is anything that it reports but can not remove.

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan
  • Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on Posted Image to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Push the Start button.
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push Posted Image
  • Push Posted Image, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Push Posted Image
Please post Eset results and a fresh DDS logs back here :(

I used to use AVG; I uninstalled it to try to make DDS work (turns out I didn't need to.)
I ran AVG and it found 156 cookies, it wouldn't delete this one:
"C:\Documents and Settings\Steve Samiljan\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\6n37sihj.default\cookies.sqlite";"Found Tracking cookie.2o7";"Potentially dangerous object"

I've been running Prevx, it seems to work, do I also need AVG, or is Prevx enough? I paid for Prevx; I'd rather not delete it.
I'll add the ESET scan now.

I recommend to visit Windows update to update Service Pack 3 :(

Let's update Java:

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malicious sites can use to exploit and infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update:
  • Download the latest version of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and save it to your desktop.
  • Scroll down to where it says "Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 17...allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Select your Platform: "Windows".
  • Select your Language: "Multi-language".
  • Read the License Agreement, and then check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • Click Continue and the page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation and save the file to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove Programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check (highlight) any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.
  • Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.
  • Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6u17-windows-i586.exe to install the newest version.
To Clear the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) cache, do this:
  • Click Start > Settings > Control Panel.
  • Double-click the Java icon.
    -The Java Control Panel appears.
  • Click "Settings" under Temporary Internet Files.
    -The Temporary Files Settings dialog box appears.
  • Click "Delete Files".
    -The Delete Temporary Files dialog box appears.
    -There are three options on this window to clear the cache.
    • Delete Files
    • View Applications
    • View Applets
  • Click "OK" on Delete Temporary Files window.
    -Note: This deletes all the Downloaded Applications and Applets from the cache.
  • Click "OK" on Temporary Files Settings window.
  • Close the Java Control Panel.
You can also view these instructions along with screenshots here.

How's the computer working?

I've done those updates.
My computer seems to be working well, thanks very much for your help.
I think I need to look at the section here on start-up programs & cleaning up firefox a bit.

My last question is:
Do I need to run both AVG & Prevx? Should I just delete Prevx? Is there a conflict between the two of them?

AVG is Antivirus and it's important program. You need to keep it.

Prevx is antispyware (am I right?) and it's good to keep it as well :(

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

Next we remove all used tools.

Please download OTCleanIt and save it to desktop.
  • Double-click OTCleanIt.exe.
  • Click the CleanUp! button.
  • Select Yes when the "Begin cleanup Process?" prompt appears.
  • If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes.
  • The tool will delete itself once it finishes, if not delete it by yourself.
Note: If you receive a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding OTCleanIt attempting to contact the internet, please allow it to do so.

Hide system files
  • Open My Computer.
  • Go to Tools > Folder Options.
  • Select the View tab.
  • Scroll down to Hidden files and folders.
  • Select Do not show hidden files and folders.
  • Check (tick) Hide extensions of known file types.
  • Check (tick) Hide protected operating system files (Recommended).
  • Click OK.
  • Close My Computer.
Create a new, clean System Restore point
  • Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.
  • On the Welcome Page, select Create a restore point. Click Next.
  • Give this restore point a descriptive name and click Create.
  • When done, click Close.
Warning: Do not clear infected System Restore points before creating a new System Restore point first!

Please read the above to create a new System Restore point first, then clear out the infected System Restore points.

Clear infected System Restore points
  • Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Disk Cleanup.
  • Select C drive and click OK.
  • Select the More Options tab.
  • Under System Restore, click on Clean up....
  • You will be prompted. Click Yes.
  • When done, click OK.
  • You will be prompted again. Press Yes to confirm.
  • When done, Disk Cleanup will close automatically.
Keep your system updated

Microsoft releases patches for Windows and Office products regularly to patch up Windows and Office products loopholes and fix any bugs found. Please ensure that you visit the following websites regularly or do update your system regularly.

Install the updates immediately if they are found. Reboot your computer if necessary, revisit Windows Update and Office update sites until there are no more updates to be installed.

To update Windows

Go to Start > All Programs > Windows Update

To update Office

Open up any Office program.

Go to Help > Check for Updates

Alternatively, you can visit the links below to update Windows and Office products.

Windows Update
Office Update

If you are forgetful, you can change some settings so that you will be informed of updates. Here's how:
  • Go to Start > Control Panel > Automatic Updates
  • Select Automatic (recommended) radio button if you want the updates to be downloaded and installed without prompting you.
  • Select Download updates for me, but let me chose when to install them radio button if you want the updates to be downloaded automatically but to be installed at another time.
  • Select Notify me but don't automatically download or install them radio button if you want to be notified of the updates.
Besides Windows that needs regular updating, antivirus, anti-spyware and firewall programs update regularly too.

Please make sure that you update your antivirus, firewall and anti-spyware programs at least once a week.

Be careful when opening attachments and downloading files.
  • Never open email attachments, not even if they are from someone you know. If you need to open them, scan them with your antivirus program before opening.
  • Never open emails from unknown senders.
  • Beware of emails that warn about viruses that are spreading, especially those from antivirus vendors. These email addresses can be easily spoofed. Check the antivirus vendor websites to be sure.
  • Be careful of what you download. Only download files from known sources. Also, avoid cracked programs. If you need a particular program that costs too much for you, try finding free alternatives on Sourceforge or Pricelessware.
Surf safely

Many of the exploits are directed to users of Internet Explorer and Firefox.

Using Firefox with NoScript add-on helps to prevent most exploits from running as NoScript by default disables all scripts on all websites. If you trust the website, you can manually allow it.

If you prefer to use Internet Explorer, please refer to this website to learn how to secure Internet Explorer 6.

To secure Internet Explorer 7, please read this article.

Backup regularly

You never know when your PC will become unstable or become so infected that you can't recover it. Follow this Microsoft article to learn how to backup. Follow this article by Microsoft to restore your backups.

Alternatively, you can use 3rd-party programs to back up your data. One example can be found at Bleeping Computer.

Avoid P2P

P2P may be a great way to get lots of stuffs, but it is a great way to get infected as well. There's no way to tell if the file being shared is infected. Worse still, some worms spread via P2P networks, infecting you as well. If you do need to use them, use them sparingly. Check this list of clean and infected P2P programs if you need to use one.

Prevent a re-infection
  • Spyware Blaster
    SpywareBlaster is a program that is used to secure Internet Explorer by making it harder for ActiveX programs to run on your computer. It does this by disabling known offending ActiveX programs from running at all.

    You can download SpywareBlaster from Javacool.

    If you need help in using SpywareBlaster, you can read SpywareBlaster's tutorial at Bleeping Computer.

  • Hosts File
    A Hosts file is like a phone book. You look up someone's name in the phone book before calling him/her. Similarly, your PC will look up the website's IP address before you can view the website.

    Hosts file will replace your current Hosts file with another one containing well-known advertisement sites, spyware sites and other bad sites. This new Hosts file will protect you by re-directing these bad sites to

    Here are some Hosts files:

    MVPS Hosts File
    Bluetack's Hosts File
    Bluetack's Host Manager

    A tutorial about Hosts File can be found at Malware Removal.

  • Malwarebytes RogueNET Bleeping Computer
    Before downloading any anti-spyware programs, always check it. This will save you from a lot of trouble. If in doubt, don't ever download it.
Here are some more things to read about:
