Also, I was getting frequent svchost.exe errors, and an Error Box about Gen Windows Services 32 has encountered an error and must shut down. When that shut down, I lost USB Port functionality and sound.
PLUS, I got a popup for a Fake Spyware removal program.
Scanned with Malaware Bytes and Ad-Aware, found and cleaned a few things, then nothing. Problem persisted.
As last resort, did the Destructive Recovery from the Compaq D Drive.
And, I still have issues. Still have the redirect. So far, have not has a svchost.exe error.
Cannot get to Windows Update web page to load.
I did commit a Bleeping Computer No-No, before I knew it was a No-No. Read about, Downloaded and ran ComboFix. Log says it found Rootkit activity.
Still have the issues after running ComboFix. I also have downloaded HiJack This and run it, will post the log if requested.
