A few weeks ago my laptop (Windows XP Pro) had the Google Redirect Virus.
I used TDSSKILLER which found some rootkits and deleted them. The Redirect issue thankfully went away.
However, I keep getting problems with missing files on start up and the Laptop is basically crawling in speed ever since. To make matters worse, the Google redirect is back and it's also effected my Windows 7 desktop computer and my mothers Windows XP (home version) Laptop!
I've carried out research and understand that the router could have been compromised and could be the source of the current spate of Google redirects.
As of yet i've not tried to do a factory reset as its a bit daunting and to be honest, my laptop is the big concern.
To describe the problem.
I visit google.com, type in a search query, results page loads, when I click a link from the results page, a new tab opens (never used to open a new tab) In this tab it will load random websites offering games consoles, adult material and sometimes rogue search results. If I press the back button in firefox, it will load the correct website of which I seleted from the google results. Sometimes a bad website doesn't load and the intended website from the search result eventually loads (although still in a new tab)
I would be hugely greatful if someone can help me with my problems.
I am attaching my DSS logs with my post along with one from OTL.
As a side note, I must tell you that I have been unable to get GMER to run properly, it usually hangs after a few mintues of scanning and crashes my whole system. I then find the laptop won't reboot normally and I have to load up in safe mode, and then restart in normal mode.
I look forward to any assistance that any of you knowledgable people can offer.
