The other day, I started noticing some "odd" behaviour from my PC. At first I didn't clue in...random "freezes"...re-directs to obscure webpages, etc.
Then, while checking things out in TASKMANAGER, I noticed a few odd programs running: a.exe, b.exe, c.exe. etc....
A quick GoogleSearch informed me that this was indeed a Malware/SPyware/Trojan attack of some sort. I immediately ran a FULL scan with Avira...nothing flagged!
After several nervous hours, I downloaded and ran SPYBOT Search & Destroy...A few items were found and "handled".
Not satisfied that all was well, I did some more Googling to see what else I might do....Downloaded a whole slew of Anti-malware/Spyware software...some discovering more faults, others not finding a thing!
Tonight, after running MalwareByte's AntiMalware, I discovered 7 more infections...and I'm still getting re-directed...especially when I try to Google anything to do with Virus or Malware removal (clever boys).
I followed the advice in this thread: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/280742/multiple-virustrojan-activity-browser-redirects-help/ as the fellow seemed to be going through what I was...
This MalwareBytes thing seems to be quite robust...I will run it a few more times and see what gives...stand by!
