Hello,

I'm getting frequent (every 5-10 minutes) notifications from my Norton 360 antivirus program of blocked attacks against my computer.
I've updated my virus definitions and run a full system scan with no problems detected.

The security report states that "An intrusion attempt by <IP address> was blocked. Application path \DEVICE\HARDDISKVOLUME2\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SVCHOST.EXE"
The risk is named "HTTPS Tidserv C and C Domain Request"
Having looked a few other related threads, this seems to be something I should be addressing, rather than ignoring the notifications.

In addition, Google search results are redirected to random spam links when they are clicked on. Seems to redirect on close to 100% of results. Better results using Yahoo search, which only seems to redirect about 50% of the links clicked. I'm using Internet Explorer 7.0.5730.11

I have replaced e-mail addresses with xxx@xxx in the ark.txt file.
Please see below for the DDS Log.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Myrti,

Thanks for your reply! I'm glad there are places where the average user can get some help!

I'm actually out of town right now and won't be back to the machine for another week; however, I'm also considering doing a complete reformat as I've probably accumulated a lot of other garbage on my machine. Would it be pretty safe to assume that whatever is plaguing my system would not survive this?

Thanks again!

Hi

a reformat is usually the safest solution if you are ready to do so. You probably have a backdoor on your system, so I would have suggested a format for safety reasons at one point.
