Seems to be a theme...

Search links in google/yahoo redirect to nothing close to the link.

Occasional pop-up ad sites.

Very slow PC.

MBAM, a-squared, and spybot scans are all clean.
GMER shows suspicious file 'atapi.sys'.

Renamed, replaced file in c:\windows\system32\drivers\ and c:\windows\system32\dllcache with clean file from another PC.
Deleted renamed file.

No luck thus far.

Sigh.

Any guideance would be greater appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Mac

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.
