Please find attached my logs as per the bleepingcomputer.com instructions.

Any help or insight would be much appreciated.

It originally had AV8 infecting it. However, it still redirects to spurious websites when using Explorer , Chrome or Mozilla.

I can clean up, with the programs I have installed, Comodo, SuperAntiSpyware, Spybot, AdAware. But it is not getting to the route because as soon as I go online, the redirects start and I need to clean again.

My main log is below.

Good evening. :)

Download TDSSKiller.zip from Kaspersky from here and save it to your Desktop.
  • You will then need to extract the file(s) from the zipped folder.

  • To do this: Right-click on the zipped folder and from the menu that appears, click on Extract All...
    In the Extraction Wizard window that opens, click on Next> and in the next window that appears, click on Next> again.
    In the final window, click on Finish

  • Please close all open programs as this may result in a reboot being necessary.
  • Double click TDSSKiller.exe to begin.
  • Click Start scan and allow the tool to do just that.
  • One the scan has completed, if the tool has identified anything allow it to carry out it's default action(s) - you'll need to click Continue where appropriate.
  • Finally, if it prompts you to reboot your machine, please click Reboot Now and ensure that your machine does so.

  • If the scan finds nothing, please click the Report button and let me have a copy of the text file that opens.
  • If you reboot your machine, the log, which i'd like to see, will be located at the root of you hard drive as C:\TDSSKiller.Version_Date_Time_log.txt.
    Please check that you get the one with the right date and time. :)

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Magnificent one Team Numpty.

That resolved it. The rootkit was called something . TDDS which sounds like tedious anyway.

Thanks once again.
