Had this problem for a few days with no luck on getting rid of it. At first, all I noticed was that site links always redirected me to some spam sites. I fixed that by just enabling protection on my Malwarebytes but just recently, spam/virus sites started slipping through. So I ended up installing another Windows 7 onto a new partition (keeping my old windows partition) and once I installed and updated my nod32 it detected an infection in my 1 partition called "Olmarik.ADA trojan". Went to a couple of sites and followed other tutorials but many of them used ComboFix to solve the problem. ComboFix doesn't work with my 64xbit. Did a MBRCheck and found something but not sure what it is. Already tried restoring the MBR to default but that didn't do anything.

Also, I wasn't able to get the GMER txt file. All the boxes were grayed out.

So things I already tried:
1) Malwarebytes doesn't detect anything
2) MBRCheck detects something but doesn't fix anything.
3) ComboFix would not work with my 64bit system.
4) Eset detects the trojan but can not delete.
5) TrendMicro Online scanner does not work.
6) Used Kaspersky AV but that didn't detect anything special

edit: Looked through other forum threads here on the site and tried this TDSSKiller. After running the program my MBRCheck received different results.

New MBRCheck scan after using TDSSKiller

edit: Eset doesn't warn about anything wrong at startup anymore. Maybe it is gone forever. What would be the procedure to check that I'm clean?

It has been 5 days already and no sign of any problem. I guess problem is now fixed.

As this issue appears to be resolved I am closing the topic. Please send me (or any other Moderator) a Personal Message (PM) if you would like the topic re-opened.
