I think I have at least a redirect virus. My antivirus is useless.

My computer at the very least seems to have a redirect virus and an ad.yieldmanager.com thing that will not go away. The redirect is recent but the yieldmanager has been on my computer for a while.

I have bitdefender but whatever is on my computer seems to have control of the scanning process and my full scan that in the beginning took hours to complete is finished in minutes and I am blocked from updating the program or running the online scan. I downloaded avast after disabling bitdefender and that scan was clean as well as spybot. I have tried to work with the bitdefender technical support but they never get back to me and seem to be going off a vanilla manual and not reading about my specific problems.

I can provide a highjack this report or whatever else someone might need to diagnose.

Any help would be huge.

Windows vista and internet explorer 8

Thanks.

Just to add to this...
I have been reading some other posts and tried to download rkill. It seems to be downloaded by when I run it a window opens and the quickly disappears. Same result in safemode other that it leaves a log stating that it canceled itself. I tried to download Malwarebytes but my computer is not letting me. It is also blocking superantispyware.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic from step 9.

If you cannot run DDS pot your HJT log.
Let me know if that went well.

Logs have been posted here:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/304731/redirect-virus-maybe-more/

As such I am going to close this topic.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
