Hi, I was infected with Anti-Malware doctor and managed to remove the main virus itself, it originally kept explorer from running and was restarting my comp every 1 min when the net was connected. I managed to get rid of all of that but now I am stuck with redirects to various websites when I search using google. I am on firefox, and it also happens with Internet Explorer. I have ran combofix multiple times while following previous problems on this forum of the same type, however I cannot manage to fix it on my own it seems as the redirects continue to occur. I see you do not want Logs to be posted until asked for so I will wait patiently until I get a response. Emails will come to my phone so I will be ready to reply as soon as I hear from someone. Thank you.

I see I got moved for not following procedure, sorry, i did not notice the sticky, after 2 days of constant trying and endless frustration i've gotten into a rush as I need to get back to work and this is keeping me from it. I disabled "dom.ipc.plugins.enabled" within firefox's about:config and that has completely fixed the problem, however I realize this does not mean I removed the problem files, I hope this helps point towards what my problem is. My other plugins that were running but I disabled long before disabling this are


They were all disabled and yet my redirect problem kept occuring so hopefully that means these files are all okay.

Thanks for any help.

Hello, it woukd be best to repost in the first forum but with the proper info.
Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
Include your ComboFix log.
If GMER fails ,skip it.

Let me know if that went well.

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic341777.html 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.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
