Hi,

I tried a couple of malware removal tools including hijack this and malwarebyte but Firefox still gets redirected when I do a Google search.

Right now I'm running the Microsoft full service scan which has picked up 6 items and 2 issues but I won't know what they are for hours yet.

It's been running for about 6 hours and is only 14% done.

I ran combofix before coming to this site and reading that I shouldn't run it without a guiding hand.

The results are posted at pastie.org.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Michael

I ran SuperAntiSpyware and the problem has gone away ;)

Let's hope it doesn't come back!

Apart from tons of cookies, the following is all that it found and quarantined;

s0.2mdn.net [ C:\Users\Mike\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\WXEWQSNS ]

Trojan.Agent/Gen-Falcomp[Cont]
C:\PROGRAM FILES\COMMON FILES\MICROSOFT SHARED\WEB COMPONENTS\MESSENGER.EXE

I can't imagine that a cookie was the problem, although I know little about malware, and I couldn't find out any information about ..

Trojan.Agent/Gen-Falcomp[Cont]

Michael
