I recognized what it was immediately and took steps to remove it. As far as I can tell I succeeded.
However, ever since I removed it I have been getting that annoying google redirect problem. Sometimes popups open on their own, but mostly, if I click a link from a google search there is about a 50% chance I'll be redirected to a bizarre and pointless ad site. (1-800 kidneys? really?)
I ran Hitman Pro and it told me that it detected a "possible variant of the TDL3 Rootkit."
Then I ran combofix which seemed to run without a hitch (this was before I even knew this site existed.)
However, when I powered up my system again, I was still experiencing the redirect. Hitman Pro is still reporting that it detects the rootkit.
I am a very computer savvy person, in fact, I do tech support for a living. However, I have been unable to remove this virus on my own.
I am running Windows 7 OEM, but i installed it on a second computer so it is technically unregistered. I have to click through two "your windows isn't registered" boxes when my Windows first starts up. I don't know if this matters.
Thank you all in advance for any help you can provide. I will be refraining from taking any more steps on my own so I eagerly await your assistance.
I have attached the DDS logs, and...
Edit: On my second try I was able to run GMER. I have also attached the GMER log (ark.log) GMER reported after scan that it had "detected evidence of rootkit activity."
