Well, here it is: I have run my nod32, spybot(updated to current defs.), malwarebytes housecall all with mixed and limited results. I am running windows 7 ultimate(oem) on an intel based system core 2 duo e6550 @ 2.33 per core with 4 gigs ram on 32 bit os. My internet is rdrunner high speed with both wired and wireless connections simultaneously. What happens (sometimes) is: when I begin to type a search string in, my google page changes to another page and then redirects when I hit enter. Sometimes it stays on my (custom background) google page and gives me the search results, but when I click one, redirects to whatever lame-o page their engine has chosen for me, not the one I have chosen Attached is my latest hijack this log. Can anyone help me before I have to do a full wipe on my 1 and 1/4 terabyte system? edit: Also my security center is disabled and nothing seems to fix this either.

Edit: Moved topic from Win7 to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

Please do the following:

Please download DDS from either of these links


and save it to your desktop.
  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click dds to run the tool.
  • When done, two DDS.txt's will open.
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
Please include the contents of the following in your next reply:



Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here to your desktop. It will be a randomly named executable.
  • Double click the exe file.
  • If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO, then use the following settings for a more complete scan.

    Click the image to enlarge it
  • In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Ensure the following are unchecked
    • IAT/EAT
    • Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
    • Show All (don't miss this one)
  • Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
  • Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.txt" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.
  • Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop, and attach it in reply.

Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries
