For the past week my google.com searches from time to time have been re-directing me to unusual sites and sometimes opening random tabs by itself. It doesnt happen everytime I hit a link in google but if it does, it takes usually 4-5 clicks and then back on my browser (in total) until it goes to the actual site. I have found myself now just right clicking the link, physically copy and pasting the link into my browser to avoid this.

I have run scans with... Avast Antivirus, Malwarebytes, Ad-Aware and another programme I cant recall. Avast found a few things, mostly cookies, removed them but it is still there. In the past Malwarebytes has found and removed anything I have had but this is just baffling. At times when the random tab openings happen Avast lets me know it has blocked an attack from malicious stuff located in firefox.exe itself.

My computer has had a few problems recently, I get a stop 0x0000024, blue screen error I think when trying to boot. To boot I have to run XP in debugging mode (not sure if this has anything to do with it) so I generally just leave my PC in hibernation to avoid having to boot up everytime I want to use it. I dont know what I have done with my XP CD so a simple re-install or repair hasnt been tried yet. I cant get into safe mode or any other mode with exception to debugging mode.

Man I hope someone out there can help me. Usually im pretty good at cleaning my system from stuff like this but this 1 has me stumped.

EDIT: Moved from XP forum to Am I Infected, more appropriate forum ~ Hamluis.

I have the same problem. I don't know how to fix it either, but maybe my reply will be sort of like a bump so more people can see it.

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.
  • Make sure the Sections option is checked (in the right hand panel). Leave all other options unchecked!
  • 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.

There certainly is evidence of a nasty Rootkit.

Follow the instructions given here starting at Step 6:

I have split off you log and moved it here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/311093/google-redirect-trojan-and-or-virus/

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic
