months ago, bout 3 or 4 I would guess, I started being redirected. I'm sent to google-antalytic and amazonaws, among other random sites and popups. I'm not new to computers and/or virus's, so i ran my usual: Spybot, hijack this, malware bytes, panda free (scanner at that time). But nothing was found, started researching and saw it might be a rootkit so i used more programs: tdsskiller, a fresh install and update of previous listed programs. I even tried to reinstall browsers (i use chrome, but also found it happens in firefox and IE as well). But nothing was/is working. Recently i bought a new harddrive and installed windows xp home, applied SP3 and all updates. And yea, i know, I was stupid there, i should have set that drive up alone and not to the old drive.
So here, I am, having tried all programs listed, along with GMER, Rootrepel, windows defender on top of it all.
I'm running 2 drives, one with HP installed windows XP media center, the new one with windows xp home. I've also tried to reset my router to factory default. I use Qwest DSL with the actiontec M1000 router and a Netgear rangemax wireless WPN824 v2. (i never reset that to factory, could that be it instead of my router? i'll try resetting both again just to make sure).
I'll run whatever i have to as many times as i have to. If needed, and IF it would work, i'll even reinstall windows. I just want this gone. Thanks for the help!
edit: my current anti-virus is avast, cause i can't seem to find a free panda anymore.
edit: I reset both my router and wireless to factory default. I update here if i keep getting redirected, but i'd appreciate advice nonetheless
