this is a repost because I think I got missed.

Got a e-mail I thought was from a friend that sent me to a video link. It started loading and was taking a while (about 30 secs) I cancelled it. Anyhow it apparently loaded stuff on my machine. I found directions to locate and delete a.exe, b.exe, c.exe (turned off recover to delete and not sure how to turn it back on). Seemed like everything was good except not everytime I use a search engine (I use google or yahoo) the results come up but when I click on them it redirects to some other seach site. I can stop it by turning off Java, or bypass it by cutting and pasting the URL (if its readable ie: no .....). But it bothers me that there is something on my computer that doesn't belong there. Anyway, I've read a bunch of sites, they all seem to lead here by the way, and I can't figure out what to do. I've run MBAM (after I figured out the acronym) and have run adaware. I've downloaded someothers (can't remember the names) but they don't seem to find anything. Followed the directions and tried to download and run the DDS but it doesn't work. I have HJT downloaded if that helps. Please help me. While this doesn't really interfere with my day to day work it bothers me like I said above that there is something on my computer that doesn't belong there.(By the way I spoke to my friend, he didn't send the message and doesn't think it came from his computer.)

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer. My name is Computer Pro and I will be helping you with your issues.

Please subscribe to your topic so that you will be notified as soon as I post a reply, instead of you having to check the topic all of the time. This will allow you to get an email notification when I reply.

To subscribe, go to your topic, and at the top right hand corner by your first post, click the Options button and then click Track this topic. Then bullet the immediate notification bubble. Finally, press submit.


Could you please post your Malwarebytes log? It can be found under the "Logs" tab of the program.

Then once you have done that, please run Dr. Web:

Please download Dr. Web the free version & save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.

Scan with Dr. Web Cureit as follows:
Double-click on launch.exe to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
Read the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.
The Express scan will automatically begin.
(This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).
If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.
If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All.
When complete, click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
(This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
Now put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.
In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and UNcheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Ok.
Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
When the scan is complete, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
Click "Yes to all" if asked to cure or move the file(s) and select "Move incurable".
In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.
Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

Sorry it took so long. The Dr. Web program crashed the first time. Think nVidia desktop manager (or some such named program) caused it to lock up.
The first time I ran it, it found a Trojan file in the Symantec Quarantine folder and moved it. These are the results from the second run. Not sure this is/was really a virus as I recall a tech we had working on the computers last year using this program.

Lets run SAS:

Please run ATF and SAS:

Note.. SAS doesn't open the registry hives for other user accounts on the system, so scans should be done from each user account.

Note 2: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

From your regular user account..
Download Attribune's ATF Cleaner and then SUPERAntiSpyware, Free Home Edition

Save both to desktop ..

Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
Close browsers before scanning.

Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program. DO NOT run yet.



Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use Firefox or Opera browser click that browser at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.

NOW Scan with SUPER
Open from the desktop icon or the program Files list
On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
Perform a Complete scan. After scan,Verify they are all checked.
Click OK on the summary screen to quarantine all found items.
If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.

To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.

No.

I did two searches. The first one, everything I clicked on worked (but it was slow). The URL's seemed to repeat the search information with google in front.

The second search I ran, the first result I clicked on (www.silverspringsaints.com/) this is the error message:

"Firefox can't find the server at newserversearch.com."

I've run a couple more and its not doing it consistently. Its is also not 'redirecting' just slow and sometimes getting error messages.

the first few results I clicked on failed, almost like I had lost my internet connection "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage".

After that everything give the same message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"

I'm sorry. I overlooked that.

Please download SmitFraudFix
Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

Tutorial with images ,if needed >> L@@K
Unzip that to your Desktop and then click RootRepeal.exe to open the scanner.

*Open the folder and double-click on RootRepeal.exe to launch it. If using Vista, right-click and Run as Administrator...
* Click on the Report tab, then click the Scan button. Check all seven of the boxes.
* In the Select Drives, dialog Please select drives to scan: select all drives showing, then click OK.
* When the scan has completed, a list of files will be generated in the RootRepeal window.
* Click on the Save Report button and save it as rootrepeal.txt to your desktop or the same location where you ran the tool from.
* Open rootrepeal.txt in Notepad and copy/paste its contents in your next reply.
* Exit RootRepeal and be sure to re-enable your anti-virus, Firewall and any other security programs you had disabled.

Please note: If Rootrepeal fails to run, try this step: Click Settings - Options. Set the Disk Access slider to High


Note 2: If RootRepeal cannot complete a scan and results in a crash report, try repeating the scan in "Safe Mode".
