I know there are a bunch of these topics lying around, but I have literally tried everything i have read in these forums and others to remove this redirecting rootkit and all have failed or had short-term success...Hitman Pro 3.5 did not work, MalwareBytes does not help, nor does Superantispyware. Combofix worked for a few minutes but then the redirecting reappeared even after multiple scans and "fixes." I am at my wits end with this stuff and I thought i may be able to fix this issue if i consulted some professionals like yourselves. Please, help me! I will post any log, run any file as long as it will get rid of this blasted rootkit/virus. And i have replaced my atapi.sys and mouclass.sys with fresh copies from a USB using safe-mode with CMD and it still didn't work that way either. Thanks!
EDIT: Oh and i forgot to mention, stupid "Just In Time Debugging" messages keep popping up despite disabling them in the internet options. And when i try to open them with the debugger they are linked to spam sites and somehow connected with a svchost.exe file....just thought i should mention what i have found....

Just tested....Spybot found 14 things but when it supposedly removed them it didnt redirect for about 14 clicks and then came back...help would be very appreciated. I don't even want to put in a single password because I'm so paranoid about being hacked....>_>

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/319218/redirect-virusrootkit-nothing-seems-to-work-but-here-are-some-logs/ 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 MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in 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 MRT 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 MRT Team members are EXTREMELY 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 MRT 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 MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
