Hello, I found this topic as only search result with google while researching about a malware on my laptop: Infected with Google/Browser Redirect/Hi-jack - I think?, Have tried several malware scans - problem is getting worse/morphing

I used HiJackThis to find the culprit, it is a keylogger and a trojan.

My personal scanner didn't recognize the whole packet, only one of the several components were removed yesterday. And also only 2 of several scanner recognized the malware, I used this online scanner.

Finally I activated Microsoft Security Essentials scanner (which was deactivated temporary), and the threat was found immediately.

So I advise the poster of the message quoted above to install and use MSE, it should help to get rid of this nasty trojan.

Hmm, I am afraid but I still have the same issue after the other crap was removed. I wonder why this browser hijack stuff is not resolved yet. And why I didn't find more about this issue when searching the web.

Think I managed to find a solution, someone posted somewhere that he used combofix and this resolved the problem for him, infected atapi.sys file and some more, combofix found it at my pc as well as the rest, an exchanged userinit.exe file and exchanged ctfmon.exe.

What I really wonder about is, why the hell the av tools I am running were not able to detect this. Once combofix moved the infected atapi.sys in quarantine the avira av guard reported it immediately, but not before... I think I also uploaded the .sys to some online scanner and nothing was found, strange it is. But I think it is gone now.
