I think I have this browser redirect virus, but before I'm 'sposed to post about it I wanted to get through the dds.scr and gmer stuff.

My first problem is that I don't even seem to be able to run the dds script. After I first downloaded it, the computer recognized the *.scr extension as an Autocad script (which makes sense as I have Autocad on my comp), but when I opened it it just appeared as a buncha gibberish in notepad with the title 'dds.scr' (not the dds.txt log!!). I went into to folder options to try and find that file association (for SCR files) but there was none?? I tried creating a file association to open the .SCR files with command.com but just get the notice "Specified COMMAND search directory bad" in the console window. What am I doing wrong here??

I'm running XP Pro sp2...

Hmm...did you download from the site listed in the Prep Guide, http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html?

Then save it to your desktop?

Double-clicking on it should have started it, with new onscreen instructions...no need to "open with" or open.

Yep, downloaded it from that thread, saved it to desktop and double clicked and then clicked run, but it opened the script as a text file. :thumbsup:

Gmer.exe seems to load/run just fine, though.

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Thanks! Seems to open, haven't let it complete the scan as I'm in the middle of running gmer. Another browser hijack/redirect & windows update problems thread coming right up...

Sounds like a script hijacking not blocking by Autocad.

The computer definitely seems like it could be 'hijacked'. Here's the thread requesting help: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic354697.html

Now that your log is 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 Response 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 member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process or make things worst which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Response 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 Response 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 posted your log and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Response 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 Malware Response Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic until you are cleared by the Malware Response Team. If you still need assistance after your log has been reviewed and you have been cleared, please PM me or another moderator and we will re-open this topic.

Good luck with your log.
