Posted 24 October 2010 - 09:12 AM

I've done my best to try and figure this out alone before I found this forum, but it's completely beyond me what to do. I first noticed a problem when I searched google and clicked a link and was taken to some rubbish faux-search page. I took it to be a bad link and tried another, which again took me to some dodgy site. After googling for a link that I knew and trusted, clicking it still took me to a bad page so I knew something was wrong. I researched it and found out about the google hijack virus, as well as giving myself a bit of a lesson in malware (which I must admit I was completely off the pace with). I downloaded, updated and ran MBAM, which found and removed some things (I can post a list of everything that has been quarantined and removed if that helps). This speeded up my computer immensely - I can't overstate how much better it is now. I had just assumed that my computer was sluggish because it was old. I had also naively thought that if my antivirus didn't pick anything up, I was fine. The problem is, this didn't solve my google link hijack problem, and I've even been hijacked to a site that tried to install a virus that AVG picked up. Just today, clicking a link a forum that I frequently visit took me to one of these bad sites (copy and pasting link in address bar took me to proper link) so that's why I haven't titled this thread "google hijack infection".

I used another computer to change sensitive passwords and haven't used this computer to access them while I have been trying to solve the problem. I realise now that I just can't solve this alone, and I'd appreciate any help you can give me. I've followed all instructions in the preparation guide. Thanks!

Hello and Welcome to the forums!

My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.

Somethings to remember while we are working together.

  • Do not run any other tool untill instructed to do so!
  • Please Do not Attach logs or put in code boxes.
  • Tell me about any problems that have occurred during the fix.
  • Tell me of any other symptoms you may be having as these can help also.
  • Do not run anything while running a fix.

In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see a button called Options. If you click on this in the drop-down menu you can choose Track this topic. By doing this and then choosing Immediate E-Mail notification and then clicking on Proceed you will be advised when we respond to your topic and facilitate the cleaning of your machine.

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

In order for me to see the status of the infection I will need a new set of logs to start with.
