I'm sure most of us are familiar with the Google (and other search engines) redirecting virus. So far I have tried most methods suggested by popular sites on the net, it has not worked for me. Now, it did not add it self as a new driver, it could have modified one of my system drivers such as atapi.sys but the modification date displayed for all my .sys files in the drivers folder is in 2009, this thing popped up in the past 3 days. I am using autoruns with process explorer to get rid of any suspicious startups and processes, but there are none. My router is fine and so is the DNS as my other computers under the same network does not have this problem. Combofix does not seem to run for me as this is a 64bit operating system.

-EDIT- Sorry, it seems I posted this in the wrong section, darn n00b to the forums, lol.
