I have a Laptop with XP OS
I have MacAfee Security Center installed which updates daily
Three days ago, a MacAfee scan found 2 trojans in my Local Settings/Temp folder, Generic.dx!iip, Generic.dx!iip
A second scan found nothing further.
Then I ran Malwarebytes which found Hijack.Shell in HKEY_Local_MACHINE/SOFTWARE_Micorsoft\WindowsNT\Current Version...
Over the past few days I have repeatedly run Windows Defender, Malwarebytes, HouseCall and MacAfee but have turned up no further items. The browser is still being redirected from from both Google and Yahoo. It is happening in IE and in FFox.
I discovered HijackThis which I Installed. While on that site, I read about RUBotted which I also installed yesterday. Today, it gave me a bot warning and I ran HouseCall from the TrendMicro Site which found Troj_Ambler.smz in the Local Settings/ Temp Internet folder for another computer user who has not been on this computer for weeks.
Can you help me get rid of the spyware that has taken over my search engine. Grateful for any help.
