So I left my computer on and went to help roommates move some furniture. When I came back in my room, my computer was still on but not responsive. After performing a restart, I was presented with the blue screen of death. After a good 2 hours in safe mode I was able to access my computer, but I noticed my browser was being hijacked and sending me to different websites than the ones I was clicking. An interesting note on this is that my browser is only hijacked when I click a link and not when I manually type in the URL.
I immediately got onto my NOD32 and of course nothing came up. I also brought up my malware program and nothing came up. I attempted to system restore, and a box stating that system restore is turned off pops up. I attempted to open my regedit, and that had been disabled as well. After running some interesting code I was finally able to open my regedit and of course there is a DisableSR in the registry that re-installs itself whenever I delete it. I have never encountered a virus of this kind before. And what's really interesting is I haven't been to any questionable sites where I could have picked up something like this. So enough of my rambling and if anyone can assess what I have in this Hijack this read out and shine some light on it, I would be very appreciative. I really don't want to have to re install everything again.

Hello and and Welcome to Bleepingcomputer

Please note we are very busy, so if I don't hear from you within 5 days the topic will be closed, If you have since
resolved your issues I would appreciate if you would let me no so I can close this topic.

We need to create an OTL Report

  2. Save it to your desktop.
  3. Double click on the icon on your desktop.
  4. Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
    Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the following bold text.
    %systemroot%\system32\*.dll /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\Tasks\*.job /lockedfiles
    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s

  5. Push the button.
  6. Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here:
    • OTL.txt <-- Will be opened
    • Extra.txt <-- Will be minimized
