Running Windows XP SP3 on a Dell Latitude E4300. I ran SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition, CCleaner, Malwarebytes, Spybot & Avira in safe mode. The programs found some things and deleted them. I did not save what they found. All browsers are still being redirected. Just ran HijackThis but the log file is too large to post.
Appreciate your help!

i was fighting the same browser issue. it is now resolved.

i first ran unhackme and it found and deleted catchme.sys, and pragmad.sys, but the redirects continued.

i then ran tdsskiller and it found and deleted tsk222a.tmp, klmdb.sys, and rasacd.sys and the redirects seem to be cleared up.

that was baddie that was very, very difficult to clear up.

any idea where it came from? it was on a corporate laptop and i have mcafee and superantispyware in place.

i guess hackers are always a step ahead of the game.
