Hello there,

I have a pc here at work that was recently infected with a rogue anti virus program. No biggie right? So I run MBAM like I have in the past, it finds and removes the rogue AV, so all should be good.. but it's not. Now anytime you search google and click on a link in the results you're forwarded to an unrelated site. I'm ran MBAM as a deep scan and still have the same results. I've completely reset IE settings back to default with no change. Firefox behaves the same way when clicking on search results. I ran tdsskiller.exe and it didn't find anything after the scan. I then tried using Superantispyware in a deep scan and upon removing the malware it found the PC no longer starts Explorer.exe automatically. I actually had to pop the XP cd in there and copy explorer.exe out of the I386 folder as it was missing from c:\windows. Now when you log into windows you have to launch the task manager and manually run explorer.exe before you have a gui. This thing is kicking my butt :( Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
