I can be a little more specific...Window XP Pro OS, I ran malwarebytes that I got off this forum, from th self help post for how to remove Defence Center. My machine got infected with Defence Center, and AV security suite in rapid succession, from the browser redirect function of AV, when I allowed myself to be unwittingly redirected righ into a site that was infected by Defence Center. The Malwarebytes scans are now coming in clean, and the machine works normally in every way, except for when I try to use a search engine link in Google, it sends me off into other random directories, and also at times to a login type screen, where I am asked to enter a scrambled code (like when you sign up for sometig legit on the web) and click 'go' or 'start', which of cpourse I do not do. interestingly enough, when this occurs, the little voice ballon pops up off my toolbar telling me Windows updates are ready to be downloaded. I suspect this function is part of the virus, because Defence Center used this originally as part of the ransom to try to make you buy it. Anyways I hve not deleted any of the quarentined files from malwrebytes yet, so I could post them here if anybody wants to see them. I m also running Hijck this, so my scan log from there is also available.
