Hi, last couple of days I've found if I do a google search and click on the result, I get taken to various advertising sites -
Lightseek.biz
savecompare.com
sportcampinglocations.com
bigshoppingdeals.co.uk
kelkoo.co.uk
etc

I've run an anti-virus scan (F-Secure) which didn't show anything bad.
Downloaded Ad-Aware, which found win32.trojan.NSAnti and 199 cookies it didn't like, and deleted them.
I'm still getting directed to the sites.

Found this site, and downloaded Malwarebytes following advice in this thread http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/270212/ie-redirection/

This found 4 objects and quarantined/deleted them.

But, I'm still getting directed to the sites.

Here's the logfile below, any ideas what I can try next?

Thanks
Paul

Hi Mark, thanks for the response, but the problem has escalated.

I now can't get the pc to boot up even in safe mode, and I can't find the system recovery disc.

Is there anything else I can do?

Thanks
Paul

You can try these various rescue disks to get it back to where you can work with it
Try Vipre's first
Remember to set the CD drive as first boot device in the BIOS

Vipre rescue disk
http://live.sunbeltsoftware.com/


If you cannot bootup normally, cannot transfer required tools to the infected machine and cannot download anything while in safe mode, then your options are limited to what security tools you have on your computer. If those tools do not work, then your options become even more limited.

Have you tried using System Restore from a command prompt in Safe Mode to return to a previous state before your problems began?

If that doesn't work. these are links to Anti-virus vendors that offer free LiveCD or Rescue CD utilities that are used to boot from for repair of unbootable and damaged systems, rescue data, scan the system for virus infections. Burn it as an image to a disk to get a bootable CD. All (except Avira) are in the ISO Image file format. Avira uses an EXE that has built-in CD burning capability.If you are not sure how to burn an image, please read How to write a CD/DVD image or ISO. If you need a FREE utility to burn the ISO image, download and use ImgBurn.

Note: In order to use a rescue disk, the boot order must be set to start from the CD-ROM drive. If the CD is not first in the boot order, the computer will attempt to start normally by booting from the hard drive. The boot order is a setting found in the computerís BIOS which runs when it is first powered on. This setting controls the order that the BIOS uses to look for a boot device from which to load the operating system. The default will normally be A:, C:, CD-ROM. Different computers have different ways to enter the BIOS. If you're not sure how to do this, refer to:

I really appreciate your help, but this is a bit beyond me, so I've called in a local guy to take a look.

Thanks anyway
Paul
