Hi, tried to solve this on my own for several days with not much success.
Running Windows XP SP3.
The problem started with Google Chrome, it stopped working one evening. The browser is stuck on an infinite loading loop but works when the "--no-sandbox" argument is added to the command line. Internet explorer worked fine. I did some googling on the problem and apparently it's either some anti-virus or a virus.
Switched to Opera browser. Got infected with ave.exe "xp total security". Ran Super Anti-Spyware/Malware Bytes/AVG 9 to remove. Seemed to be removed but I'm still getting google search redirects in Opera.
Downloaded and ran TDSSKiller. In safe mode, it detects nothing. In standard mode it detects a problem with Atapi.sys. The message is something like.
"Problems in memory 1/0/0
"Problems in files 1/0/1"
However, after every reboot, it's the same message.
Downloaded Gmer today and tried to run, in standard mode Gmer would crash with a BSOD, the BSOD flashed quickly so I'm unable to see what the exception was. Currently I'm running Gmer in safe mode.
Could use some help.
