Dear Sir/madam

My PC is infected by some unknown malaware or virus. Both google and yahoo search engines take me to some unknown site with the address bar showing the names of google or yahoo itself. i am unable to log into bleeping computers site also as an error of code 500 keeps coming up. this same error comes many times when i try to log in into antivirus sites.
i have cleaned my pc with avast pro, avg, norton, mcafee, malaware bytes, spybot, adaware, one more spyware program which was suggested in some topic on bleeping computers.
none of them have helped. there are some times when the browser is not redirected but after some time the problem again returns.
please help.

thanks
rakesh upadhyay

Used TDS killer, it did not remove any, would try out the next steps mentioned in the link and update again
thanks for providing the link, it is very informative and also educative
the best part is it is very easy to follow even for computer novices like us

Please run a quick scan with Malwarebytes and post the log.

Download this file and save it to your desktop:

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.scr

Double-click the file to run it. A command window will open briefly. Then run a quick scan with Malwarebytes. Post the Malwarebytes log.

Did as you told, ran RKill and then MBAM in quick scan and am posting my log. Had one small query, the only change i remember having being done is that i uninstalled yahoo messenger, is it possible that yahoo was the cause for it?

It is very hard to say what the cause was. It is possible that you got infected through Yahoo messenger.
