I am running Windows XP Pro.

Firefox homepage is Yahoo.. and when I search something then click a link it is redirected. However when I type Yahoo.com .. or google.com in address bar everything functions normally.. (No redirects etc...)

I ran system restore and didn't really help, as well as hijackthis and removed a few things. Still have the underlying problem though.

Also, I cannot get the computer to hibernate when I close the lid (I've tried resetting the options in the power meter section). So when I want to turn the computer off I just send it in standby mode, or fully shut it down.

Any guidance is very much appreciated.

Thank you.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 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.

Completed as instructed. Still having the problem with the redirects from the yahoo search. (yahoo is my homepage.) If I type "google.com" in the address bar, the search results are not redirected. The searches are redirected with firefox and with IExplorer. The the computer will still not go into "Hibernate" mode.

I'll wait to see what you read from my scan.

Thanks,
Bruce

Run the Malwarebytes scan again and post the new log.

Installed and ran the tdsskiller and it found 1 infected file and killed it on the reboot.

Problem seems to be solved, search results are no longer redirected and when I close the lid on the computer it goes into "Hibernate" once again !!

Thank you so much !!

If you’re clean, you should create a new Restore Point to prevent possible re-infection from an old one.

Go Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click System Restore. Choose the radio button marked Create a Restore Point on the first screen then click Next. Give the Restore Point a name and then click Create. Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point. Go Start > Run and type: "Cleanmgr" (without the quotes). Click Ok > More Options tab > Clean Up in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.

Also, go Start > Control Panel and double-click Add or Remove Programs. Post back and report any Java or JS2E entries that you have.

I've created the new restore point.

When I try the disk cleanup thru Start - Run and Cleanmgr then click OK, there is not a "More Options" tab, only a pop up that allows me to choose which disk to clean up.

On the Add/Remove I have:

JS2E Development Kit 5.0 update 11
JS2E Runtime Environment 5.0 update 11
JS2E Runtime Environment 5.0 update 6
Java 2 Runtime Environment Standard Edition v1.3.1_02
Java ™ 6 Update 2
Java ™ 6 Update 3
Java ™ 6 Update 5
Java ™ 6 Update 7
Java ™ SE Runtime Environment 6 Update 1



If you’re clean, you should create a new Restore Point to prevent possible re-infection from an old one.

Go Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click System Restore. Choose the radio button marked Create a Restore Point on the first screen then click Next. Give the Restore Point a name and then click Create. Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point. Go Start > Run and type: "Cleanmgr" (without the quotes).

Those Java entries are out of date. You should remove them and then get the latest from here:

http://java.com/en/download/index.jsp

This one I am not sure about "JS2E Development Kit 5.0 update 11". If you do not do Java development it can go also.

I removed all of the old java stuff and installed all the latest v6 updates from the link that you provided.

Was I doing something wrong with the "cleanmgr" that I mentioned, I don't see the "more options" tab.

I am not sure about the "more options" tab because I do not have access to an XP computer at the moment. I would just choose the main drive.
