How I discovered the virus: I've really wanted Kaspersky Anti-Virus for some time now, but it's spendy. I decided I would download the free trial until I figured out a way to get the full version. I knew Kaspersky would not run with other ant-virus/spyware/malware programs, so I removed PC Tools (my dad had installed it on reccomendation of Dr. Phil) and tried to access Kaspersky.com. There was no activity between these two actions. When I try to access Kaspersky in IE, I recieve the "Cannot Find Server" page. The page cannot be displayed, click here for internet connection help, etc. I also recieve a yellow bar just under my toolbar saying "This website wants to run the following add-on: 'Shell-Doc Object and Control Library' from 'Microsoft Corporation'. If you trust the website and the add-on and want to allow it to run, click here..." Obviously, there's no website to be found so I have completely ignored this. If I use a search engine to access a website, I am redirected to random ad pages from all over the place. I can access websites like Facebook, bleepingcomputer, and a plethora of anti-virus/malware/spyware sites and can even download them, but cannot acess Kaspersky website or websites through search engines. Sometimes, I'll be redirected to an ad page when I try to head to Facebook or Microsoft Security Essentials, but can access the website on the second or third try.
I have already performed one full and one quick scan using MBAM. The first full scan detected somewhere around 40 threats and I had MBAM remove and delete all of them, but the virus stayed. The second quick scan by MBAM detected nothing. I have now uninstalled MBAM and am running a full scan with Microsoft Security Essentials, which has found/removed on threat, but I have a feeling it won't help much. I still get redirected when I boot up in safe mode.
EDIT: Moved from XP to Am I Infected forum ~ Hamluis.
UPDATE: Ran Kaspersky TDSSKiller. Found nothing, redirect still there, Chrome still dead.
