This is my first time posting something on this site. If this isnt the correct place to post my problem, please direct me to the correct location. I don't have that great of computer knowledge, so whoever helps me please be as discriptive as possible.

So basically everytime I use a search engine my pages get redirected to various advertisement sites. This started to happen yesterday. It may have been due to a bad torrent I downloaded a few days ago, but I'm not totally sure. I've done scans with Malwarebytes, MSE, and avira, but none of them detected any problems.

I am running Windows 7.

The problems occured on IE and firefox, although I uninstalled firefox, mistakingly thinking it was the root the this issue.

Here is my MBAM log from yesterday.

Hello let's do these next.

Please download the TDSS Rootkit Removing Tool (TDSSKiller.exe) and save it to your Desktop. <-Important!!!
Be sure to download TDSSKiller.exe (v2.4.0.0) from Kaspersky's website and not TDSSKiller.zip which appears to be an older version 2.3.2.2 of the tool.
  • Double-click on TDSSKiller.exe to run the tool for known TDSS variants.
    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • If TDSSKiller does not run, try renaming it.
  • To do this, right-click on TDSSKiller.exe, select Rename and give it a random name with the .com file extension (i.e. 123abc.com). If you do not see the file extension, please refer to How to change the file extension.
  • Click the Start Scan button.
  • Do not use the computer during the scan
  • If the scan completes with nothing found, click Close to exit.
  • If malicious objects are found, they will show in the Scan results - Select action for found objects and offer three options.
  • Ensure Cure (default) is selected, then click Continue > Reboot now to finish the cleaning process.
  • A log file named TDSSKiller_version_date_time_log.txt (i.e. TDSSKiller.2.4.0.0_27.07.2010_09.o7.26_log.txt) will be created and saved to the root directory (usually Local Disk C:).
  • Copy and paste the contents of that file in your next reply.



Rerun MBAM (MalwareBytes) like this:

Open MBAM in normal/regular mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan (normal mode).
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot into normal mode.

So I downloaded and ran the TDSSKiller.exe scan and it removed something that was like C:\drivers0 and now windows7 won't boot. I am currently using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on my computer. I don't know what do to next besides doing a full re-installation of windows7

Hello, please restart your computer and tap the F8 key until the Advanced boot options menu comes up.

Select "repair windows".

When loaded, provide your login details and select "startup repair".

When finished, let me know if you can boot normally.

regards, Elise
