Hi, I'm a new user. I wish I was just investigating this site to learn stuff, but I picked up something on my computer. The problem is that some, but not all, Google search results are redirected to various ad sites and then sometimes back to Google. As others have posted about, the search results are directed to adwords.onlinesecuregroup.--- (figured I shouldn't post the whole nasty link) followed by a string of characters. After finding no problems with McAfee, Spybot and Malwarebytes', I found Bleepingcomputer and followed the Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help. I'll paste my DSS.txt below and attach my Attach.txt file and ark.txt file. The ark.txt file is the short one... I tried 4 times to do a full scan with boxes checked as in the "Guide", but each time it crashed the computer. I guess I may have some other issues with the machine; however, the hard drive and CPU were replaced a year ago by Dell after a failure. I'd like to try to clean up my computer and have some time as I look for something new if that becomes necessary.

Thanks in advance, ZinNC

Hi, again.
When I posted yesterday, I had been able to follow all of the procedures in the "Guide for Malware Removal" except running GMER. It always made the comptuer go to a blue screen or lock-up. After reading some posts as I've waited, I am now running GMER in safemode and will hopefully have a log to post soon. The problem I posted yesterday is the same... search result links redirect the browser to somewhere other than the link. I hope someone will be able to offer me some help with this problem. Thanks so much.

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.


Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explaination about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

Information on A/V control HERE



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.
  • 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.
regards,
schrauber

Hi.

Thank you so much for getting to me. Fortunately, I was able to take my computer to the walk-in Tech folks at our local university this morning (yep. they were working on Memorial Day). They re-ran scans and determined the problem to be a RootKit. They successfully removed it, re-checked multiple times, and all seemss to be well now. So, you can close this request for help. I will certainly remain a member of Bleeping Computer and read ... a truly excellent place to learn.

Before we completely close this incident, could you answer a question? I assume I should now discard the dds program and logs as well as gmer and partial log (I never could get this to run... not even in Safe Mode)... is this correct, to discard the programs and logs?

Thanks,
ZinNC
