Posted 16 October 2010 - 02:11 PM

Here is what happened so far:

My browser started redirecting some of my requests to totally unrelated webpages
I did a virus scan and found several including

I removed them with my antivirus software (Avira Antivir)

Then I checked with Gmer which showed a suspicious activity
I ran TDSS Killer

After reboot Gmer and TDSS Killer did not show anything suspicious any more

I then unistalled Firefox and download it new from Mozilla and reinstalled

However it is still acting strangely -when I try to call webpages it stalls on several of them and seems to try to do something (redirect?) when the websites are loading code from google-analytics.com

This does not happen when I use Safari instead.

I ran Rkill, which reported nothing.

I ran DDS with this result
DDS (Ver_10-10-10.03) - NTFSx86

So is there still something wrong? Is Firefox just not working properly or is someone manipulating it?

Not supposed to bump - I did read - , but not sure if it went under

I know how frustrating it is when your computer isn't working properly. Let me assure you that your topic isn't lost, forgotten, or ignored. We work with hundreds of logs every day, so we have devised a means of seeing only those topics that don't have responses yet, which is why this is done as an edit rather than a response. At the moment, we have nearly 400 unanswered topics, the oldest dated Oct. 7, 2010 at 7:31 pm Eastern Daylight Savings time in the U.S.A. Your log topic is dated Oct. 16, 2010 at 3:11 PM using the same time zone.

Our volunteer MRT team members have various levels of expertise and training, so while we try to take the oldest DDS/HJT logs, it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results. In other instances, the helper may not be familiar with the operating system that you are using, since they use another. In either case, neither of us would want someone to assist you who is not familiar with your issue and attempt to fix it.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.
