still had problems with browsers being redirected to hxxp://find.seekbasic.com/addrSearch.do
so I used avg removal software and was able to install eset antivirus 4 free trial. I ran the standard scan & found 29 infections. They were removed successfully.
I installed MBRT & booted into safe mode, ran scan & found 900 infections & tracking cookies. I was able to remove them successfully.
I tried firefox to search google and it was working normally. I tried to go to microsoft update and got a message that Eset blocked to site and a long url that ended with 22.214.171.124:80.
I did a google search and found this website and this article
which match the problem I'm having.
I followed the Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help and followed these steps
Please, uninstall the following applications:
1. Adobe Reader 9.3
You can read, how to do this here:
* Windows XP
* Windows Vista
* Windows 7
Please go into the Control Panel, Add/Remove and for now remove ALL versions of JAVA
Then run this tool to help cleanup any left over Java
Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.
Please download JavaRa and unzip it to your desktop.
***Please close any instances of Internet Explorer (or other web browser) before continuing!***
* Double-click on JavaRa.exe to start the program.
* From the drop-down menu, choose English and click on Select.
* JavaRa will open; click on Remove Older Versions to remove the older versions of Java installed on your computer.
* Click Yes when prompted. When JavaRa is done, a notice will appear that a logfile has been produced. Click OK.
