I have been a big fan of bleeping computer for a while now. It has always helped me to read similar problems faced by other folks and fix my own computer.
However, I am in a fix now and have not found many threads related to the problem Im having. So I thought Id ask for help.....
I am working at a small office with about 5 computers. We have avg 8.5 installed on all of them, apart from MBAM and spybot.
Just a few days back, my browser started acting weird ( Mozilla firefox). It would redirect me to some other site when I click on any links after a google search. I thought it was an adware problem and ran mbam and spybot. spybot found a few adwares and I gladly deleted them. However, it still gives me the same problems. I tried running various online scanners like trend housecall, bit defender, Microsoft live one care, mbam , panda online scan and a few other rootkit healers. None of them found any problems with my system.
I downloaded other browsers like chrome and opera to check if it was an issue with the browser. However, all of them started getting the same problems after a restart. The only browser that doesnt seem like its infected is the IE8. Also when the site is redirected, it shows an opposite '6' number on the addressbar jst before the site link. by opposite '6' I mean that a 6 the other way round. Not sure if its of much help, but just giving out info that I know.
I read another guy having the same problem on bleeping computer, but was kind of scared to try the final combofix step without any help. Also, when I tried to run combofix, it gave a few errors in this order ,
1> " windows cannot access the specific path or file. The file name maybe invalid. CLick search and type in a new name.....blah blah..."
2> "installation failed"
3> " windows cannot find 32788R22FW\hidec.exe. Make sure you typed the name correctly adn try again. To search for a file click the start button and then click search"
Theres similar problems occurring at the other machines too. By the way I had renamed combofix to 123.exe as suggested in one of the posts.
Im not sure how to attach my hijack this and avz logs. Would be great if someone could help me out.
This is the link i was looking at...
Thanks & Regards
