I am running a wired Dell Dimension 9300 on Vista + 2 laptop on wireless. A couple of weeks ago, Windows AV discovered Cycbot.b. My IE browser also started redirecting me to weird sites. I ran AVG and cleaned a few found infections but it did not solve the problem. A couple of days later both my wife and work laptops started suffering from the same problem.
I ran Malwarebytes, Microsoft Malware remover, Avast AV, Hijack this... (One at the time) but none of the programs can't find anything.
In desperation, I formatted both HD and reinstalled Windows. Surprise !, the browser redirect issue is still there but AV can;t find any infected file on the computer. I found that I could not deep format the drive where Windows was installed originally. I physically pulled out the drive and installed Vista on another one. Still the same issue...Also, When using IE, the browser now shuts down on most sites I try to access. I am writing this mail on Firefox.
Any advice is welcome I am desperate...
