I have run Spybot, Ad aware, Trend Micro Internet security, Housecall and MS Security Essentials. Nothing is fixing this problem.

It pops up a link to directdr.com, then it redirects to some other site (some dish ad, bleep ad, sports book, others).

It hapens in IE8 and Firefox 3.3.5.
Often times google.com links are all intercepted and opens bad URLs. I have to right click and "copy shortcut" then paste it into a new tab.

Here is one intercepted popup:

Hi,

I have not had a reply from you for 3 days. Can you please tell me if you still need help with your computer as I am unable to help other members with their problems while I have your topic still open. The time taken between posts can also change the situation with your PC making it more difficult to help you.

If you like you can PM me.

Thanks,


m0le

Yes, that is fine.

No rootkit showing but quite a few problems are present. There are also a high number of malicious drivers running.

We should be able to deal with the issues.

Please download ComboFix from one of these locations:* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop making sure you rename it comfix.exe
  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. (Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive.)
  • 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.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

Posted Image


Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.

This should stop and remove the drivers and may also replace a modified driver. The log should be quite interesting and the tool may take a while to run so be patient. :(
