Mod Edit: Moved from XP to Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs ~~boopme


In the last few days both browsers (Firefox and IE) on my XP Prof (SP3) system have started "randomly" redirecting web pages to surveys, marketing pages, etc of a variety of ilks. In addition Windows update is no longer working, giving me dns errors.

I've updated my McAfee VirusScan + AntiSpyware to the latest dats and run several scans over the last few days. Most of the scans come up clean though it did pick up (and evidently delete) two items (on two seperate scans):

New Malware.lg and DNSChanger.as

Despite the cleaning the system is still exhibiting the problem. I also updated Windows Defender to the latest signatures (via a flash drive as it could not update over the net) and ran a full scan but it didn't detect anything.

Thanks for any help you can give!

Hi,

Download DDS and save it to your desktop from here or here or here.
Disable any script blocker, and then double click dds.scr to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt
  • Save both reports to your desktop. Post them back to your topic.

  • ---

    Download GMER here by clicking download exe -button and then saving it your desktop:
    • Double-click .exe that you downloaded
    • Click rootkit-tab, uncheck files option and then click scan.
    • Don't check
      Show All
      box while scanning in progress!
    • When scanning is ready, click Copy.
    • This copies log to clipboard
    • Post log (if the log is long, archive it into a zip file and attach instead of posting) in your reply.

    Ahhh - thanks for the reply but I ended up just rebuilding the system from scratch yesterday afternoon. All is now well again. I'll take note of those tools for potential future use though!
