I have an infection and have been unable to get rid of it. I have McAfee as my antivirus and the subscription has been up-to-date. I have run everything I could find in trying to get rid of this. It includes Malwarebytes, AdAware, Spybot, and others that I have since forgotten. Thank you in advance for your help.

Before I do this, I need some additional confirmation. I did not get all of the warnings mentioned in the TDDSKiller instructions. I am getting Browser Redirects. That much I can see. I am not sure if they are stealing data off my machine or using it for something else. So I guess I am asking for confirmation before moving forward with these instructions.

Thanks,

The instructions there are for two things.Firstly DR Guard which i know you are not infected with.However it also mentions TDSS rootkit,the major symptoms of which are browser redirects.It is up to you whether to follow my advice as i can only offer recommendations
Below are links to a couple of threads i posted to very recently which had the same symptoms and TDSSkiller solved the problem.

Trollocks,
Thanks for the tip. It seems to have done the trick. I applied TDSSKiller, and it found a file DMDriver.exe that was infected. It has been a few days now and the browser redirects are gone. Please do not misinterpret my previous query for confirmation. When I read the symptoms listed with using this utility, it seemed to indicate another additional set of problems, with mine being a minor one. Couple that with the warning of mis-application of solutions that abound in the forum, well I was being cautious. I did not want to make a bad situation worst. I hope you understand.

Thanks immensely for the help.

Regards,
-Vernon
