Mayson from Columbus Computer Care here.

I'm a computer technician by trade, and I've been fixing PCs for roughly 4 years.

I have a clients PC in that i had just removed a heavy Malware infection from. All was well, but just recently it was returned to me for a different problem and seems to be a tough nut to crack. Anytime the client clicks on any link, (Search engines, regular websites, even our own site.) it will redirect to some other websites. Some being of adult content, other search sites, known fake Malware sites, Ect, but it will not always redirect. Maybe every 3 out of 5 times. And as of now, I've ran several Malware and Spyware scans that had all come back clean and I'm starting to run out of options. So any help would be greatly appreciated.

Now after reading through the guide form, I want to post my DDS, HJT and RootRepeal logs. But once DDS completed, it said not to post it until requested. So, I'm sure you guys are busy as can be so any help from here on out would be more than appreciated. When you need the logs, just ask and i will post them.

Thank you in advance and best regards,

Mayson of Columbus Computer Care

In that forum you post you log with your initial post
If that is your intent, please do so

Hello CCC_SirKibble,

I have split off your logs and moved them to the appropriate forum. You can find your new topic here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/271266/browser-randomly-redirects-me/

Now that you have posted a log, 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:
