Hi,

I've Windows 7 x86 Ultimate(fully updated) and Windows XP SP3. My AV is AVG Free and Windows Defender. Both didnt return any suspicious files in C: scan.

The current problem is in Win7 and it seems that I've been infected by the redirect virus. Whenever I click on any link from a search(any engine), it redirects to some malicious sites. Sometimes even copying n pasting the link doesn't work. The problem is acute with Chrome but not so with Firefox(same with IE). I've been having this for the past week, I had tried googling and found the TDSSkiller latest version 4.1.... I scanned twice with no result and it returns only one suspicious object-sptd.sys in win32 folder. I googled it to find that it was a system file. So I left it as it was. But this day, I found the problem to be completely fixed with Firefox running without any redirects. But Chrome failed to launch any site at all. Moreover, Win7 was taking longer to load. So I ran TDSSKiller again and this time it found some TDSS file (together with the system file) and I quarantined it. I restarted and found that the booting times were still long. So I ran the app again and this time also it found the same files. So I cured it and restarted it later to find that the redirect virus had cropped up again in all browsers. When I ran TDSSKiller again, the infected file was not found and only sptd.sys was returned as a suspicious file. Am I really infected?(and do I need to move this post to the malware removal forums?)
