Recently i have been getting a lot of random pop-ups that normally lead to sites trying to give me a virus. AVG Free Edition 9.0 always blocks these attacks but i really want to get rid of this because i can't ever get to the site i am trying to get to. About a week ago i had a rouge anti-virus (Windows Defender 2010) which i finally got rid of using Malyware Malbytes. After that my PC was acting weird and Just-In-Time Debugging keeps popping up. Sometimes SVChost or something like that crashes and then nothing works. Also after i removed the rogue anti-spyware none of the icons on desktop or in start folder would open. So i looked it up and i had to copy this into notepad and save it as fix.reg.

Pasted the following:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\.exe]
[-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\secfile]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\secfile]
[-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe\shell\open\command]

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\command]
@="\"%1\" %*"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe]
@="exefile"
"Content Type"="application/x-msdownload"

This let me open all programs but then Mozilla Firefox would do random tabs and redirects.
Also i tried this.

Went to: C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
Opened Hosts and deleted EVERYTHING. Then saved.
Deleted all backup hosts and thats about it.
Also i cleared all history, cookies, data, and everything else.
I also ran multiple tests with all my spyware and virus Removers

Thanks for reading and please give me details on what to start out with. Thanks.

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.

    Posted Image
  • 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.

See if unchecking Devices on the right side before scanning.

Good job. Hello, there are some modified/suspicious .sys filres here. We need a deeper look. Please follow these instructions to post needed logs.

Preparation Guide . proceed to steps 6 through 9.
If you cannot perform a step move on to the next. Post all required logs and the complete log.
Include the GMER logs you posted earlier.
Let me know if that went well.

I split off your post with the logs and moved it here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/311413/random-redirects-on-clicking-links-or-random-tab-pop-ups-in-firefox/

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
