I've been infected by Antimalware Doctor on a machine running XP 5.1. I began by following the instructions here:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-remo...imalware-doctor
which basically says run rkill and then MBAM. MBAM (V 1.46) found 30 some infected objects. However, when I tried to "Remove Selected", MBAM hung. I let it run several times, including overnight for about 8 hours and it hung every time. I then made several manual registry edits as described here:http://www.ehow.com/how_6067077_remove-ant...ctor-virus.html
In addition, I manually deleted any registry entries and files that had "Antimalware Doctor", or "mainfull70707" in their names. There was also an "enemies list" that I deleted. Then I went back and ran rkill & MBAM. This time it only found about 15 infected objects, and Remove Selected got rid of them all. After a reboot, rkill does not terminate any processes, an MBAM scan finds no infected objects, and the evil Antimalware Doctor popup does not appear. So far so good.
Unfortunately, some remnant is redirecting my browser. Sometimes a random browser will open. In addition, certain sites, including beepingcomputer.com and pctools.com, are completely inaccessable. They are redirected to such locations as cdn.stopadwares.com and local.com.
Both MBAM and AVG scans show no problems, but something is still redirecting my browser.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
