I have the same problem like several other members.
During the last few weeks I am being redirected on Google searches and the computer has slowed down considerably.
I have tried these anti-malware programs (Malwarebytes, TDSSKiller, HitmanProFree, Spybot S&D) but none found any infections.
I run Win7 Home Premium 32bit with a 2 partitioned WD ATA hard drive and use Avast Anti-virus Free, CCleaner and Windows firewall.
My local computer expert believes that I have malware of the “TDL3 rootkit” variety and he suggested contacting this forum.
During some research looking for answers to combat this nasty, I came across an article in this forum written by Ngyuen Pho Son and explaining the TDL3 rootkit malware.
Since I am no computer geek and in my 70’s I found it pretty difficult to understand how it works.
However, it seems that there are no current anti-malware programs which can eliminate this rootkit.
Consequently, I was intending to backup my most important data and then reformat the hard drive and reinstall Win7 from the original disk.
Would such idea be quicker and safer than running “Combofix” and other logs?
Your advice and/or other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
