I'm sure you've seen quite a few versions of the Google redirect malware by now. I don't get redirected every time but more like one out of five. It seems to take me to various sites, not just one. I went through a few of the threads on here in order to keep from bothering the experts but the malware is blocking me from using most of the recommended scans. I have successfully ran Malwarebytes but the problem isn't taken care of. Another problem I seem to have is that sometimes when I boot up my computer my desktop icons won't load. I will have to restart the computer once or twice for them to come up.

I have Windows XP on a Dell Inspiron E1505 notebook.

I'm thinking I need to get this fixed before it turns into a really serious problem.

As always we are most thankful for any advice given to us by the people who are much smarter than we are.

Hello,

It appears as though you recently had a problem booting. I suspect that that may have been caused by an infection as well, though I'm not certain.

I would suggest that you follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<==

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then post back here and we will provide you with further instructions.

Okay, sorry it took so long to respond.

I wasn't exactly able to follow the step that were requested. For some reason lately I haven't been able to select where I'm saving these files before I save them, so they weren't saved to my desktop. I ran DDS but was only to get the attach.txt log. I then ran GMER and twice it said windows had to be shut down because there was a problem and the file pxtdypog.sys seemed to be the problem.

Since I was unable to follow instructions fully I figured it would be best to post here and try to follow the next procedure.
I won't take so long to respond next time.

Try GMER again first uncheck Devices on the right side before scanning.

Try running from Safe Mode. How to enter safe mode(XP)
Using the F8 Method
Restart your computer.
When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode
.
