System is: Win Xp Pro SP3 running ZA Security Suite Firewall/Antivirus, using FF 3.6.6
This started yesterday, after downloading pdf. ZA kept requesting permission to load exe files. I did not allow and cleared my download list and deleted the pdf (which wouldn't load anyway.)
While searching in yahoo using FF, I began getting redirected to other sites when I clicked on the search results. So, I closed FF and tried IE - same thing.
I updated and ran ZA antivirus scan, it came up with a few things and cleaned them up (I don't know where to find the log) this did not fix the problem.
I updated and ran Malwarebytes, it didn't find anything - but the problem remained.
I updated and ran Super Anti-Spyware, it too came out clean, but the problem remained.
I updated and ran Spybot, which found Opachki.ru but failed at clean up. I saved that log to pdf.
Next, I ran TrendMicro Housecall - nothing - then I downloaded and ran AVG trial - nothing; then I ran Bitdefender (online) - still shows clean.
Just finished running an OTL scan. I am at my wits end. I've searched for manual removal instructions, but none of the registry keys, that are supposed to be attributed to Opachki.ru - are where they are supposed to be.
Please Help a gal out. My washing machine went out, which is why I was searching for parts diagrams in the first place. I am going nuts and have run out of ideas. I should have the OTL log ready as soon as it's done scanning (I have never used OTL, so I have no idea how long that's going to take)
My system is booting at a snails pace and it now takes forever for FF or IE to load. I've got my startup down to basic needs and it is still taking forever.
Thanks in advance to anybody who can help me get back to good on this.
