Posted 29 January 2010 - 09:52 AM

have been struggling with this bugger for about 2 weeks now trying to get it cleaned up, and while I think I got most of the nasty bits something is left and nothing i do seems to find/fix it. Essentially I am having a redirect while running firefox(3.5.7) which alerted me to the issue. Clicking any link redirects to random(?) websites on various topics, thoguh copying and pasting the link directly to the bar allows me to get to sites like this one. Also while the browser is open, it will occasionally pop open a tab going to these same sites. I found and disabled sdra64.exe by modifying the reg key that rebuilds it just as the machine shuts down, which seems to have let me get rid of that one at least.

I have run malwarebytes a number of times now and it returns either 0, 4 or 10 results each time which i suppose means something is able to regen in the system still. I normally run AVG, but it never finds anything at all, so I installed the trial of Vipre(really just was trying another app to see if maybe avg was just being dumb) and it seems to find the same things that malwarebytes finds, spybot, super anti, all seem to find the same things, tell me they remove them, and have me reboot. The scans rerun at startup and say YAY you are clean....and then it all starts over. The latest symptom is a shutdown related to running AV scans of any type, I stopped that with shutdown -a to let them complete, but they found jack-all. Also getting a Win generic service stopped error when booting...which is also new. I run ccleaner pretty regularly(once a week?) and normally its got around 50mb to delete...today it had 10 times that, which I am also assuming is virus related. This thing als seems to have nuked my system restore points...so thats not an option either. System also will not boot to safemode, honestly have not needed to boot there in years, so I can't say if its related, but it IS irritating. Really hope you guys can shed some light on this for me, I am pretty tech-savvy and this one has me baffled.

Thanks for the response, I meant to come here and close it. Malwarebytes and Vipre kept saying that the userinit.exe was infected and were not able to repair this. I rebooted and tried repairing this with the windows cd, and it borked the whole user logon. I could have fixed this, but instead I installed a new hdd(been meaning to format and start fresh with winxp for a while now)and just reinstalled. This one was tricky, and I wish I knew what exactly would have gotten rid of it, but either way the problem is resolved.
