Good Morning all,,,,,Google searches redirect me to unassociated web sites mostly adds and such and sometimes keystrokes dont regester in my browser !
been messing with this for 3 or four days now and have not seemed to clean this completely FYI I have posted to the log forum,as stated in my other post I picked this monster up by opening an attachment on a spoofed fedex email on yahoo (dont open that attachment)webroot warned me immediatly but i guess too late, did malwarebytes scan and it eliminated a few things,ran spybot s&d it found a few things but apparently it is still in there somewhere,,At this point I am about to panic,,,
I have sysutilities process explorer and see suspicious file file activity Mshta.exe which i know is legit but it is being called by svchost and points to a website which i am fairly sure is illegit or I would never visit it ???? I killed this process tree but it came right back.
Any input with this would be greatly appreciated

patiently waiting

Hello and welcome,you will be helped in a few days as we are backlogged. ALL logs are replied to so we ask your patience.

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
