Just returned to work today and it looks like one of our accounting PCs has some kind of infection. The user started getting the Just in Time debugger popups yesterday and it also appears that there is some kind of browser redirect going on Please let me know where to start or what I should do.

I am thinking of backing up the users data and wiping the PC, but I would like to know what happened to see if there is a better way to prevent this from re-occurring.


I ran a scan with malwarebytes but it was in safe mode with networking.

This PC has windows XP with SP3, and looks to be up to date with updates.
I am going to try using system restore, but I am worried about root kits or malware that might slip through detection.

Ran system restore and browser redirect appears to be fixed, but just out of curiousity rand TDSSKiller and it found and cured Rootkit.Win32.TDSS.tdl4

I would like to backup all of the users data and then delete the drive partition and then reformat and reinstall OS, but how can I be sure that there isn't something in memory or the boot sector, that won't come back?

I found MBRCheck and ran that and it looks like the Master Boot Record is okay
