Posted 10 April 2010 - 05:11 PM

I have been dealing with the XP Security virus. I have used Malawarebytes, CCleaner, HitMan Pro 3.5, and Spyware Blaster, and AVG Spyware. These programs have solved the XP security issue after it reared it's ugly head at least a half a dozen times. I used to Windows Registy Repair to repair the registry. Everything seems to be better now and my computer even runs faster. I also had a Google redirect virus and I used HitMan Pro 3.5 to get rid of that. I was a mess!! I was running the Windows Security Essentials as an AntiVirus which was recommended by my ISP. After all of this, I switched to AVG Free. I run FireFox 3.6.3 currently.

I believe I have cleaned up that problem, now I have another. If I use the Search bar at the top right of my Firefox which is set to Google, the search defaults to the Google Netherlands site. If I click on any of the options, all kinds of things go wrong. My AVG catches things and I go to a new site other than what was listed. I can go to Google.com and not have any problems searching.

Also, my email is a toast.net that utilized Gmail. When I go to log into my email, I get the "This Connection is Untrusted" warning. It states that I need to list an exception because Firefox cannot authenticate the security certificate. I says that this happens when someone may be impersonating the site and that I should not continue. SEE BELOW

You have asked Firefox to connect
securely to www.google.com, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure.



Normally, when you try to connect securely,
sites will present trusted identification to prove that you are
going to the right place. However, this site's identity can't be verified.

What Should I Do?

If you usually connect to
this site without problems, this error could mean that someone is
trying to impersonate the site, and you shouldn't continue.

Technical Details

www.google.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed.
The certificate is only valid for google.com
The certificate expired on 1/4/2010 2:09 PM.

(Error code: sec_error_expired_issuer_certificate)

I Understand the Risks

I am not sure that I have a virus or not. I have read about Firefox 3.6.3 having some security issues and I am not sure if this related. I would just like to use Google Search Bar and not default to the Netherland site. I don't know how to read Danish.

Thanks for any help that anyone can give me.

EDIT: Moved from XP to more appropriate malware forum ~ Hamluis.

Well for anyone who may have been curious. I discovered my own problem. I had a redirect virus that had hacked my HOSTS file and made it full of bad URL's. I tried everything I could find on this forum to solve my problem and nothing worked. So I resorted to Combofix. I had no choice. I have experience with Combofix and it did indeed solve my problem.

Edit: Posts merged ~BP

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
