I found a redirecting virus on my computer that my antivirus doesn't pick up when scanning the file. Only after it is in memory. I use Eset Smart Security 4. My antivirus subscription had expired and all of a sudden no mater what search engine I used it would randomly redirect me to some other page. After I updated my subscription it was found in memory and couldn't be deleted.

This is what file I found.
"C:\Users\Tim\AppData\Local\d3dHelpPlay\compatHelplib.dll",SystemcfgTask CRLapiTrust" (Line from Hijackthis).

Also here in the registry.

It infected my Windows 7 64 bit. I had to boot into my Windows Xp to delete it (Easier for me to do this).

I found very little on the web about this. I still have the file and I'm going to submit it to Eset.

Thought I'd share. Also I'm new here :)
