hello im new to this forum and am having a problem with my PC, first off it's had many users on it and has been having malware problems off and on for the last year. it had been running fine and malwarebytes registered protection mode was working. then one day malwarebytes wasnt connected then when i went to open it i found it had been deleted somehow. well that was fine i had an older version setup .exe that i ran and reinstalled it. when i went to update it wouldnt update and wasnt finding any infections even though internet explorer keeps forwarding to fake sites if i use a search engine and would close randomly so clearly there is some sort of problem. after some work i got the newest version of malwarebytes but when i go to enable protection module
it has a pop up displaying [connecting to malwarebytes.org] and an ok button. if i click ok it comes up with another instantly displaying [openevent: quarantining 2] then proceeds to uncheck the protection module. when i perform a full scan it comes up with no infections. the broswer is still doing the forwarding to wrong sites that say "www.pixelstats.com/ followed by alot of random letetrs and numbers. or "www.stopzilla.com" no matter what link i click on in the search engine and the browser will close randomly and everything is acting jsut slightly glitchy.

i have hijackthis and the newest malwarebyte registered version. im posting a log from both to see if anyone can help. any help would be greatly appreciated and especially if an expert can diagnose my hijackthis log and tell me what needs fixed.

Hello ,
And welcome.gif to the Bleeping Computer Malware Removal Forum
. My name is Elise and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.


I will be working on your malware issues, this may or may not solve other issues you may have with your machine.

Please note that whatever repairs we make, are for fixing your computer problems only and by no means should be used on another computer.
  • The cleaning process is not instant. Logs can take some time to research, so please be patient with me. I know that you need your computer working as quickly as possible, and I will work hard to help see that happen.
  • Please reply using the Add/Reply button in the lower right hand corner of your screen. Do not start a new topic.
  • The logs that you post should be pasted directly into the reply. Only attach them if requested or if they do not fit into the post.
  • Unfortunately, if I do not hear back from you within 5 days, I will be forced to close your topic. If you still need help after I have closed your topic, send me or a moderator a personal message with the address of the thread or feel free to create a new one.
You may want to keep the link to this topic in your favorites. Alternatively, you can click the button at the top bar of this topic and Track this Topic, where you can choose email notifications. The topics you are tracking are shown here.
-----------------------------------------------------------

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.

If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

If you have already posted a log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan:
  • Please download OTL from one of the following mirrors:
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the icon on your desktop.
  • Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
  • Push the Quick Scan button.
  • Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here:
    • OTListIt.txt <-- Will be opened
    • Extra.txt <-- Will be minimized

Please download Rootkit Unhooker and save it to your Desktop
  • Double-click on RKUnhookerLE to run it
  • Click the Report tab, then click Scan
  • Check Drivers, Stealth and uncheck the rest
  • Click OK
  • Wait until it's finished and then go to File > Save Report
  • Save the report to your Desktop
Copy the entire contents of the report and paste it in a reply here.

Note - you may get this warning it is ok, just ignore: "Rootkit Unhooker has detected a parasite inside itself!
It is recommended to remove parasite, okay?"


-------------------------------------------------------------
In the meantime please, do NOT install any new programs or update anything unless told to do so while we are fixing your problem

If you still need help, please include the following in your next reply
  • A detailed description of your problems
  • A new OTL log (don't forget extra.txt)

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.
