Hi, I am a student PC Technician at my college and this virus has gone around campus, as well as infected a couple friends' computers. On campus it's easy enough to just Ghost a computer, but I would rather not reinstall windows on a friend's without trying everything else first (already had to do it to one friend's, after ComboFix failed to fix the issue). Hopefully I can get some help on this specific case on a friend's computer.
Clicking on Google search links redirects to random web pages at times, and occasionally Generic Host Win32 will encounter a problem and have to close. I ran MBAM, finding 9 items that were all related to MyWebSearch. It removed them with no problems. I have also run a full scan with AVG 9.0 Free and another full scan in safe mode with MBAM both finding nothing. I also ran a batch file known for fixing the Win32 error, but it didn't help in this case. Please let me know what you would like me to run from here and what logs to post. Thanks!
