Posted 11 December 2010 - 10:27 AM

My machine has begun doing the following: pop-up error messages about Generic Host Services for Win32 crashing; browser search redirects in both IE and Chrome; launching IE results in a pop-up asking to go to my home page or restore last session, either choice results in a new IE window with a "You've won a $1000 Walmart Gift Card..." pop-up box (process must be halted in Task Mgr). The computer also has trouble restarting now, often just shutting down the monitor but not the PC. It is very slow to restart after a Shut Down or power-stop.

I have run updated versions of SpyBot Search and Destroy, Trend Micro PC-Cillin, and MBAM. Each has reported (and then corrected) issues, but the problems above persist. I also ran scr /scannow which found no problems.

As instructed here, I have run DDS and GMER.

I have run TDSSKiller, which found a problem and Cured it. At this point, everything seems to be Ok. However, if there is something else I should do, please let me know. If the problem reoccurs, I will re-generate the log files and repost. Thank you to all the people who volunteer their time on this site.

As this issue appears to be resolved I am closing the topic. Please send me (or any other Moderator) a Personal Message (PM) if you would like the topic re-opened.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
