Hi Everybody,
My computer has been acting up. Whenever i do a search in google when i click on the results, i get redirected to some other irrelevant pages. I also get windows security alerts stating that my comp is infected. I was able to run a Hijack this log and DDS in safe mode. I uploaded both logs as the computer wont let me open them so i can post them.


Thank you for help.

Will

Hello and and Welcome to Bleepingcomputer

Please note we are very busy, so if I don't hear from you within 5 days the topic will be closed, If you have since
resolved your issues I would appreciate if you would let me no so I can close this topic.


I don't see an updated Anti Virus Program running on your machine, It is essential that you have an Anti Virus installed and keep it updated.
Without an updated Anti Virus running you are leaving your self wide open to infection every time you go on the internet.

These are some suggestion for a good free (non-commercial home use) Anti Virus:

Avast!
Antivir
AVG

Note: You should only have one antivirus installed at a time. Having more than one antivirus program installed at once is likely to cause conflicts and may well decrease your overall protection as well as impairing the performance of your PC.


  • Download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from here and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
  • Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.
  • Once it has finished, two logs will open. Please post the contents of both log.txt (<<will be maximized) and info.txt (<<will be minimized)


  1. 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)
    • Zip 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.
  2. Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs, as this process may crash your computer.
  3. Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security program drivers will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  4. Double click on Gmer to run it.
  5. Allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  6. You may see a rootkit warning window, If you do, click No.
  7. Untick the following boxes on the right side of the Gmer screen.
    Sections
    IAT/EAT
    Files
    Show All
  8. Click on and wait for the scan to finish.
  9. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
  10. Push and save the logfile to your desktop.
  11. Copy and Paste the contents of that file in your next post.



Then please post back here with the following:
  • log.txt
  • info.txt
  • Gmer log

Thanks
