My computer has a redirecting virus. I had my IT dept work on it originally, and we found a rootkit via Hitman, but I must still have remnants of it remaining somewhere or I have something else that the programs can't find. I have ran Malwarebytes, tdsskiller, Hitman, SuperSpyware, and a couple of others to no avail. FYI...It's not just redirecting on searches now. I can just be working on my computer and get a new window popup(which won't open most of the time b/c I use WOT) I use Firefox and my os is XP. It was just a headache, but it now seems to be affecting my system performance. I need to get rid of it. Can someone help?

Hello and welcome.
We need a deeper look. Please go here....
Preparation Guide .

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9,which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If Gmer won't run,skip it and move on.
Let me know if that went well.

Thank You. I will post the log there. I read a couple of other logs and have already ran GMER. I'll post the results and we'll go from there.

Thank you!
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.
