Hello, hoping someone can give me a hand here. Last day or two, google on IE is redirecting me to obviously false sites about half the time. Ran my AVG and malwarebytes, neither found anything. Also just discovered the same issue in Firefox. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Not sure if this is related, but it started at the same time. I also notice that every now and then, a program called Microsoft Development Environment will load on its own, and crash, and will give me random errors about javascript, or that it can't change something, and in order to close it down I need to Ctrl+alt+del and End task on the file, I believe it's MDS.EXE or MDE.EXE.

Would you please post the Malwarebytes log that you have.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.

restart, boot into safemode as administrator and then Rescan.

Also turn off system restore settings before you do this... This can be done by holding the 'windows button' and 'pause Break' Button. Once the System Settings window pops up, select the system restore tab and tick the box named 'turn off system restore'. This stops infections re-infecting on reboot after it has been cleaned.

Once you have done these report back to tell me whether malware bytes and avg have detected anymore infections... Also make sure you are fully upto date with both bits of software.
