Hi there
It seems I have a classic man in a browser which redirects all my browsers to other sites. I even use VMWARE and it affects my guest VM browser sessions as well. As this forum seems to be the most advanced. I have followed many instructions but still failed. Can I just post my Hijack This log report in this posting for advanced help?
Thanks

I really don't have any answers for you, but just out of curiosity what makes you think that the problem is with your PC? Do all PCs have this redirect problem or just yours? I had this problem for a short period of time but it has resolved itself without me doing anything. Maybe the problem is your Internet service or the website itself. These things do occasionally get hacked into. Where do people find all of these viruses and malware? I just want to be sure and try not to do any of these things. BTW, I use AVG and have never had any problems. Although I'm sure to ruffle some feathers by saying this, I'm going to say it anyway. I've tried Malwarebytes and it caused me nothing but problems. On top of that, I couldn't get rid of it after I un-installed it. I had to manually clean my files and edit my registry.

I also experienced in the past weird redirection on two computer on my local network and I resolved the problem by resetting the router.

I have tried all major software including Malwarebytes. Nothing was detected. The only software that seemed to catch anything was Hitwise Pro but the problem kept resurfacing. I also will reset the router to see what happens. I have also tried to leave it, but the problem has persisted for many months now.

My redirect problem only lasted a few days, many months is too long of a time. Have you tried to borrow a laptop from someone or try another PC to be sure that it is your PC and not your service?

Oh no, it is the computer. My girlfriend uses the same internet service with another computer, and she reports no problems whatsoever.

Do not post a log in this topic.

Follow the directions HERE:Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help.

Please note that the guide now recommends using DDS instead of Hijack This.

After running all the requested tools, post your logs in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum.

Include a description of your issue, and a link to this topic. Also, in this topic, please reply and state that you did post logs in the above forum.

After your logs have been posted

Please refrain from asking for further help from other members or staff until the Malware Removal Team has checked your posted log. The Malware Removal Team work very hard to investigate a unique solution to your problem and you will receive individual expert assistance. This takes time and effort so we ask you to please be patient while waiting for assistance and NOT to 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. Any modifications you make on your own can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, following advice outside of that post may cause confusion for the team member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

The Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean. If you followed any other advice already, please ensure you inform the Malware Removal Team Team Helper when they respond to assist you with your log. This will help them know what has been done and they probably will ask for an updated log.

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 "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT 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 Malware Removal Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

I've heard ISP hijacks your dns queries, and redirect you. :wacko:
God helps those who help themselves.
