The boss went overseas and came back with something that seems to redirect his searches in internet explorer.
It also redirects him if he just refreshes the browser.
He also gets some popups - but I can't tell you what the said.

I installed a new version of symantec endpoint - that was pointless
I installed the malwarebyes software and it tells me that if found a couple of registry entries that it found and deleted them - but the problem persists - btw the registry entries that it found were:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\avsuite (Rogue.AntivirusSuite)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\avsuite (Rogue.AntivirusSuite)

I ran the scans but the gmer scan blue screened so I wasn't able to get any info on that.

Attached are the two scans dds.txt & attach.txt. I hope you could look into these scans to gather any useful information.

any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks a bunch

Ok, so to give you all an update - i'm cautiously optimistic about these results but it looks like we got rid of that nasty software by using the tdsskiller. this TDSSKILLER can be obtained at http://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/solutions?qid=208280684

the boss ran it and within seconds it was done - rebooted - all's good he says.

I think we're done here, unless you think there's some kind of cleanup work that needs to be done.

incase its of any interest to you attached is the tdsskiller log file.
