Okay, so about a month ago google chrome stopped working. I couldn't immediately find the problem, so I switched to Firefox. Firefox has been fine, but it usually redirects the search links when I click them. If I copy and paste the address I don't have any problems. Also, if I click the "cached" option, it comes up fine. But otherwise it redirects the page to one of several advertisement pages. None of which are trying to sell me a fake anti-virus program ( i know that's common). Just today I started having search engine issues. When I try using google or yahoo search, I often get the error sign "302 Moved
The document has moved here. Or "ERRORCache Access Denied" . On top of that, every few days I get this 15 second audio advertisement. I close all the tabs, and it's not connected to any. I cannot find a way to stop the audio clip, it just stops when it's done. I ran malwarebytes, and it didn't pick anything up. I ran superantispywarefree, and I think it picked a couple things up the first time, but it didn't fix anything. I have ran spybot, and it pulled up pages and pages of "error during check" and "microsoft.windows.redirectedhosts" "the process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process". That's about all I can remember doing. I am running windows XP, wireless internet. Hope that's enough to get this started. Thanks

Hello,

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.46) and save it to your desktop.Download Link 1
Download Link 2
MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
    For instructions with screenshots, please refer to the How to use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Guide.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.In your next post, please provide an update of your computer issues and the MBAM log.

Okay, so I did as you said, and it picked up and removed a ton, but it said I should reboot my computer to remove certain ones. So I did, and when it booted back up, I got an error message that read "Error loading C:/Documents and Settings/Amber/Application Data/b152038f-0189-4a6c-aadc-0158baafd487_30.avi The specified module could not be found" Malwarebytes did not load automatically, so I opened it again, and ran the quick scan again. The second time it didn't pick anything up. Posted below is the first log:

Since I ran the program, Google Chrome is now working. However I am still being redirected. It's usually hxxp://florida-traffic.com/ I still get the "302 Moved" error sometimes. So not much has changed. Let me know thanks

Hello,

Error loading C:/Documents and Settings/Amber/Application Data/b152038f-0189-4a6c-aadc-0158baafd487_30.avi The specified module could not be found

Messages like this often appear when you have removed malware. To resolve this, please download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.
  • Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if you're not sure how to do this.)
  • Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
  • Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
  • When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.
  • Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.
  • Right-click on the entry and choose delete.
  • Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.
As for the other issues, I'm going to so some research and get back to you.

Okay, so I ran the autoruns program, but couldn't find anything related. The only one that had a remotely similar file location was the "google installer", and i just left it alone. Maybe next time I reboot there won't be an error. I'll let you know.

Hello,

I've done some research here, and it appears that you will need more specialized assistance than you can get in the AII forum.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include the link to this topic in your new topic, a description of your computer issues, and what you have done to try to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/321622/browser-rediercting-problems-with-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.
