Hey there, I'm new here so please bare with me.

Let me explain a little backstory first.

Basically, I stumbled across a bad site a while back, it installed an active x exploit of some kind, and blue screened me.

I tried every A/V and Spyware software possible, to no avail.

I came to the conclusion it was some form of rootkit, or other hacking attempt.

It disabled my router, and when I could get it up and running, I'd get around 98 kb/s.

I have since wiped my laptop, and all others on the network (About 4 laptops.)

However, I believe It's still here. The network often goes so sluggishly slow, to the point of crashing, yet the router states It's outputting over 4meg download speed.

I have had some very suspicious remote access attempts and the such, and now on Opera when I type in "www.google.com" it states:

301 Moved
The document has moved here.

The actual link of the redirect actually looks legit, however:


It's quite hard to explain, but the whole computer is just acting.... Suspicious? I certainly don't trust it, but I lack the knowledge to identify the problem directly.

I've tried as best I can, but would love if someone could help to try and diagnose/rule out any problems, then hopefully fix them, I'd be much appreciated.

(Oh, I forgot, I'm on Windows 7 Professional 32 Bit)

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic342382.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.

Hide not your talents. They for use were made. What's a sundial in the shade?
