Hi, I seem to have the same issue described by several others.....when clicking on a Google search result I get redirected to bogus search sites like MonsterMarketplace, infomash, and most often Tazinga. Occasionally it will open a new window in Internet Explorer on its own and then go to one of those sites. I have run Malwarebytes, Spybot Search & Destroy, AVG 9.0, Comodo and even Glary Utilities, but cannot get rid of this.
I have Windows XP SP3.
Thanks in advance for any assistance!

If it helps, every morning the AVG scan shows it blocked an Exploit Rogue Scanner (type 1178) with a different file name every day, and shows Process ID as WINDOWS\svchost.exe.

Hello,

The behaviour you describe sounds like rootkit activity which will require specialized tools to remove. Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to try to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

I followed the guide and created all the logs. However, when I attempt to post a new topic, I get the message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage."
I first uploaded the Attach.txt file and then it would not allow me to upload the Ark.txt file because it was too big. I was going to send the message and then attach the Ark.txt file as a reply, but got the above message. It appears to be hung up on "Initializing Attachments."
Then I attempted to send just the main message with the pasted DDS.txt report, and then planned to send the attachments as replies. Again, I was unable to post the new topic.

I tried again and was able to post the message and upload the Attach.txt file, but the Ark.txt file was too large to upload.

Hello,

The infection you have was causing the posting problems you described. I'm glad you were able to get them posted.

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/334457/google-search-redirect/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
