This is a copy of my recent post to PCTechtalk, who referred me to you:
"David,

After looking into your searching problem I believe you would be better off
going to virus removing experts like www.BleepingComputer.com or similar
site. They would at the very least get you fixed faster than I could and
would miss less viruses.

Subject: -=PCTechTalk=- Vundo LP and Diversion of Searches

I have two problems, but think that they may be connected
First, for the last few weeks, my AVG 9 (free version) has shown

"C:\WINDOWS\system32\csrss.exe (720):\memory_00270000";"Trojan horse
Vundo.LP";"Object is inaccessible."

Inaccessible or not, AVG seems to remove it (not there on a few subsequent
searches), but then it comes back. Malwarebytes (after Eddie B helped to get

it back for me) never found it

Secondly, for the last few weeks, about 85% of my Searches (whether with IE;

Chrome or Firefox) are diverted. If I repeat the Search 2 or 3 times, I
usually get what I want, sometimes not. The diversion is not to porn sites
or anything like that. Often it is to EBay, sometimes to what appear to be
other Search sites, such as Search Pro and Ask Jeeves. Occasionally, I get a

single commercial site, selling pharma. products.The sites which I usually
try to search are ultra respectable, such as Government Departments

Does anyone have any idea what is going on and, more importantly, what (in
simple terms please) I can do to stop it? "

Having found you, I have tried to deal with the problem by following the steps in your Preparation Guide for Use before using Malware Removal Tools. Though long and daunting, this was quite easy (even for a novice like me) to follow, but each time I try I get stuck just before the end of Step 8. I get as far as the window GMER 1.0.15..15281. Having unchecked as in Figure 13 and then clicked Scan, I get a long list of files, as in Figure 14. Many of the files appear immediately, but the scan then seems to try to go through much of the C drive, incredibly slowly, before it freezes. The furthest I have got, in many attempts, is to enter ark.txt and press save.

I mention these next problems, in case they are related to the main problem. First.for several weeks, my right click send to Desktop (Create Shortcut) has not worked. It is there (in the Send to folder) and comes up, when I right click, but then clicking on the menu option does nothing. Secondly, my cherished Malwarebytes has disappeared twice and has had to be re-downloaded, and then works only by changing the name of the exe.file

Hi, I'm having the same problem, except my Vundo! malware seems to be on my copy of Neverwinter Nights 2, a non-rewritable disc. Every time I restart because McAfee tells me to, it always comes back. I was thinking this was because the disc was non-rewritable, but maybe not. I've been unable to get any help so far, except I haven't been getting any Google searches rerouted, Firefox or IE. Maybe those "real" sites were phishing sites? Anyway, if anyone could help us that would be great.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

OK, do nothing but await a reply from the Malware team. I moved your Log post to the link above in the Log forum.

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
