Hi - everyone. I seem to be experiencing similar problems with the redirect virus. I have Norton 360, and a couple of days ago, my Spybot scan discovered that I had a number of trojans in my system (DNSFlush.cws, Win32.Agent.icu, and Virtumonde.prx). For the moment, all the anti-virus programs that I've used (Spybot, Malware Bytes, ESET, Windows Defender, Windows Online Scan) says that I am virus free. BUT, still experiencing random redirects to un-sought after sites when running google searches - particularly on Firefox and IE. I'm not sure if it happens all that frequently on Google Chrome.
I downloaded HijackTHis on my desktop, but everytime I run a system scan and save logfile, a message pops up immediately saying that my system denied write accessto the Hosts file. And, that an unexpected error occurred at procedure (O1 -Host file redirection).
Need help guys. Hoping if someone can help me run HijackThis so that I can get this pest out of my system.
