I use AVG free, not the best i know but i have had no problems with it until yesterday when I constracted a Trojan/Malware that had been affecting my moms comp. Symptoms include crawling Internet speeds and constant redirections to other sites from google and just plain web surfing.. (google redirecting me to resuts.overture then random other sites.) I only use my rig for gaming and It was in need of a full reformat so I decided to wipe the slate clean and installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 deleteing all other partitions. Now here comes the unkillable part, with the fresh install done i couldnt even make it to AVG site without it starting to hijack my browser again. So the vicious circle began. I even went as far as to disconnect the internet, fully reformat, install avast! antivirus from another disc then reinsert the jack into the back of my comp, to which it performed fine for 5 min. Im a student and i really cant afford to take my rig to a proffesional repair shop nevermind have them tell me all hope is lost, if anyone could help it would be much appreciated.

Here is my hijackthis.exe report after my latest attempted reformat. (errors apear during scan stating my system denide access to host file?)

I am using windows 7 and latest Internet Explorer7. The other day my internet started to redirect me to random pages, mostly when clicking on google suggestions. Also a random popup occures from time to time from windows telling me that i need to download the some security program. I have tried a complete clean reintstallation of W7 to try and remedy the problem but the malware/trojan infected it right away after reinstall.

I hope you can help,
Thanks Julian

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.


Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

Information on A/V control HERE



Please download GMER from one of the following locations and save it to your desktop:
  • Main Mirror
    This version will download a randomly named file (Recommended)
  • Zipped Mirror
    This version will download a zip file you will need to extract first. If you use this mirror, please extract the zip file to your desktop.
  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  • Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  • Note: If you downloaded the zipped version, extract the file to its own folder such as C:\gmer and then double-click on gmer.exe.


  • GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic quick scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)
  • If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.
  • Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
  • Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.
  • Exit GMER and re-enable all active protection when done.
-- If you encounter any problems, try running GMER in Safe Mode.
regards,
schrauber
