I have a question that has stumped me and others from various websites. I was running Internet explorer 8 with windows xp. Almost every other time I tried to go to a different page especially searching with Google or anything else my website has been redirected or jumps to a fake looking site. Someone told me to use Firefox but it still happens. I have ran combofix, sdfix, scanned the computer with malwarebytes, spybot, AVG, CCleaner and they don't find a problem. Does anyone know what I am talking about and how to fix it. Thanks, Brian

Hi m8,
I have the same problem and have managed to find it was infected with spyware and malware that the same programs you are using didnt detect. try using superantispyware free version. this should detect it and remove it. When you hve done you might need to run hijackthis and post the log to here so someone can look for you and help put things back right again.

Hope this helps

Welcome to BC


:trumpet:
download the definition updates from another computer, save them to a flash (usb, pen, thumb, jump) drive or CD and transfer to the infected machine. Then just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install the update. If you cannot transfer or install from the infected machine, try installing the file directly from the flash drive to your machine.Mbam-rules.exe is not updated daily. Another way to get the most current database definitions is to install MBAM on a clean computer, launch the program, update through MBAM's interface, copy the definitions (rules.ref) to a USB stick or CD and transfer that file to the infected machine. Copy rules.ref to the location indicated for your operating system.
  • XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Vista: C:\Documents and Settings\Users\All Users\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
If you cannot see the folder, then you may have to Reconfigure Windows to show it. Then perform a new Quick Scan in normal mode and make sure you reboot afterwards. When done, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply.

See if you can run DDS and GMER as instructed in step :thumbsup:
If successful, post the logs in the Hijack This forum


Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.


When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

The HJT team is very busy and it will take awhile to get to your post
Please be patient and good luck

Thank You so much garmanma. I ran Combofix in SafeMode and it got rid of my problem. Thank you so much. Do you have a link where I can donate to your site? You are worth every dime.
