Since yesterday (December 22, 2009), every website I try to go and every url I type in redirects to www.vtr.com! It's in Spanish, and seems to be a shopping site. Some research tells me that the site has "high security standards, very trustable". That's the only thing it does; it doesn't let me go to any website other than vtr.com.
I have Windows XP, and Internet Explorer.
In safe mode, I have run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, with nothing detected. I have run avast! Antivirus, also with nothing detected. I have run Spybot-Search & Destroy, and it detected six infected files, but the removal of these files did not help with the vtr.com problem. I have also run CWShredder, with nothing detected. I ran SuperAntiSpyware, with browser tracking cookies discovered. I deleted them to no avail.
I'm completely new, no experience at all with this kind of thing. I have no idea what this is!
Please help me!

This is going to sound like an extremely dumb question, but is it possible that your home page got changed to vtr.com?

whoops misread it =/

Hi! Is it possible to run MBAM in normal mode?

Also, could you post the log from the spybot! scan? Then one last question: As you are getting redirected from every URL, what anti-malware tools do you currently have available for use? If you can't download anything that we suggest, we'll need to know what you have for us to work with.

Thanks!

I'm so sorry for wasting your time! It turned out to be a proxy problem, though I had no idea of that. I changed mine to the previous proxy, and now it's working fine!
Thanks for all your help!

Awesome! I'm glad it was a little thing like that rather that something really nasty! :thumbsup:
