I got Malware Doctor on my Dell Inspiron 6400, with Windows XP professional, I managed to get rid of it (I Think, the computer doesnt show any symptoms anyway) by resetting my system to 2 days before I got it, however it seems as thou something is still left:
When I use a searchengine it sometimes redirects me to either a Malware download Window (The kind disguising
as a Virusscan) or to Google throu some kind of strange domain (i.e www.consumerware.com/search.php this appears to be a parked domain). Sometimes the browser opens a new window (not a tab) on its own whitch directs in the same way, this only happens when the browser is already running (one window already open).
I´ve looked around trying to figure out whats causing this and i think its a browser hijacker. Apart from the problems i described the browser works fine, my homepage loads normaly and i havent noticed any strange bookmarks.
I've run Mcaffee and MBAM. Everytime I update and scan they seem to find something new but dont seem to get at the problem because the symptoms remain.
Windows update also appear to be blocket, when I try to run it all that is shown is the "page cannot be displayed" error message
I use IE7 but downloaded Firefox to see if the problems were limited to IE7 but the same thing happened with Firefox.
I´ve looked att other posts on bleepingcomputers that seem similar to what im experiencing but im not an expert so i dont want to use advice about someone elses computer.
I would appreciate help with removal as nothing i´ve done seems to help, also if anyone knows if there could be a risk of contamination if I backup my data to an external harddrive at this point?
