Good Morning
I have XP Home Edition.Google was redirecting and not showing fire fox on opening page just some phony looking Google page.It would redirect me to 302 and click here.The virus would not let me on Microsoft windows update or update Windows Essentials.I worked on this all week and was desperate. I ran TDSS and it worked until Wife used guest account and it came back on all users(3).I found a topic while surfing the web for a fix that had the combofix link. I downloaded it and ran it without knowing all the other stuff I was suppose to do. I guess I got lucky(thank god)and it worked.
My question is does it take care of all users on this computer? I am afraid to open wife's account or kids guest user thinking it might not be removed like the Tdss killer did. I have the log file txt of what it did and will post it if someone would kindly tell me what to do.I am not a computer whiz by any means but know enough to really mess some stuff up.I have XP home but do not have the disk so I couldn't back up files any way.I have not run ANY thing but combo fix.
Thanks
Nasaman

With the information you have provided I believe you will need help from the malware removal team. I would like you to start a new thread and post a DDS log HERE and include a link to this thread. Please make sure that you read the information about getting started before you start your thread.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient. Help is on the way!

Please, re-read my instructions.
You need to create new topic in malware forum and ask your questions there, not here.

Reference: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic366500.html/page__p__2052039#entry2052039

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 logs 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 Malware Removal Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

Louis
