I just spen 3 days straight trying to remove this re-direct trojan from my IBM X41 laptop. I tried everything from, Ad-aware, Malware, combo fix, avg, google pc tools, yahoo ca, trojan remover and spybot.
All my scan came up with nothing?? I then booted into safe mode and ran everything again as a last resort.
By the way I'm running XP pro sp3.
Still nothing came up until I used the last program which was spybot Spybot found this file to be infected with the virtomunde(not too sure if this is spelled right) in this directory,
After the scan, I did not hit the fix button yet. I first went to this directory and deleted the file, then I deleted it from the recycle bin, then I hit "fix problem".
I rebooted and now IE and firefox work just fine
I tried re-booting again to make sure and everything is cool now.
I hate these re-directs and I hope this post helps someone.
