Hello all,

Thanks for taking the time to look over my post. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

I was hit by malware/spyware a few days back. I was in pretty deep and managed to get back online and keep the pop-ups away, but I know I'm not out of the woods yet. I was hit with Anti Virus Pro. Windows System Defender and Safety Center are still on my machine. I run Spyware Doctor and Trojan Remover regularly, and while those managed to remove some of the problems, there are still some that aren't removed permanently. I've also ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and rkill, which stopped the pop-ups. A friend of mine tried to help me out and ran ComboFix.

Everything seems okay, but I've noticed that my Google searches run slow and the redirect links end with a searchclick8.com tag. I've also run ipconfig and noticed that the DNS server does not match my ISP.

I'm hoping someone can give some friendly advice and point me in the right direction. I'd be happy to supply and logs if requested.

I saw the same symptoms on one of my friend's PC (Windows XP Pro). I removed AntiVirus Pro and some other viruses using Ad-Aware (http://www.lavasoft.se/), SpyBot (http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html) and Malwarebytes (http://www.malwarebytes.org/).

The problem with SearchClick8.com still persisted. So I ran HijackThis (http://free.antivirus.com/hijackthis/) and noticed that 2 of the registry entries: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{..some_key_hex_numbers..}\NameServer are pointing to 77.74.48.113, which is a server located in the Netherlands. Deleting those IP and leaving the registry entry empty fixed the SearchClick8.com problem.

Good Luck!

Now that you were successful in creating those two logs you need to post them in our HJT forum There they will help you with the removal through some custom scripts and programs that we cannot run here in this forum

First, try to run a DDS / HJT log as outlined in our preparation guide:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/34773/preparation-guide-for-use-before-using-malware-removal-tools-and-requesting-help/

If it won't run, don't worry, just give a brief description and tell them that these logs were all you could get to run successfully

Post them here:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/

The HJT team is extremely busy, so be patient and good luck

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/272508/garmanma-sent-me-here-searchclick8com-browser-hijackwindows-system-defendersafety-center/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days, up to two weeks perhaps less, to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
