This is for the browser search redirect problem.

I'm such a bonehead I don't know how to post properly in the forums......

This found the file msdtcuiuu.dll in the windows/system32 folder

I clicked delete or fix selected and let the program re-boot. The search redirect was gone.

I hope this helps

The link for that tool shows a date of 11/29/09. While it may have worked on older TDL3 variants it probably will not be effective against the newer ones.

You may have been infected with an older version of the infection. As quietman7 states, newer variants come out very frequently. A tool dated for November 29 last year will not be effective for new infections.
