I'm hoping you can help me root out why the Google Chrome and Firefox browsers are redirecting on my family member's computer. It doesn't do it immediately nor consistently; it's not until the second or third search that the browser starts to randomly redirect and it doesn't do it every single time something is searched. The browser slows significantly right before it'll redirect and it mainly redirects to "yafraudcheckonline.com" although it sometimes redirects to two others. A scan was run with MBAM and Trojan.Ambler.Gen and Malware.Trace were found and successfully deleted but the browser still redirected. A scan was also run with SUPERAnti-Spyware and some adware was found. A rootkit scan with AVG found nothing, but the AVG virus scan found some corrupted .exe files along with one instance of malware. The malware name was unknown, but was located in "C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\VYUU\SETUP.EXE" and it along with the corrupted .exe files were put in the virus vault with no luck. The browser is still randomly redirecting. Thanks in advance for any help!

Let's try this.

Please download the TDSS Rootkit Removing Tool (TDSSKiller.exe) and save it to your Desktop. <-Important!!!
Be sure to download TDSSKiller.exe from Kaspersky's website and not TDSSKiller.zip which appears to be an older version of the tool.
  • Double-click on TDSSKiller.exe to run the tool for known TDSS variants.
    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • If TDSSKiller does not run, try renaming it.
  • To do this, right-click on TDSSKiller.exe, select Rename and give it a random name with the .com file extension (i.e. 123abc.com). If you do not see the file extension, please refer to How to change the file extension.
  • Click the Start Scan button.
  • Do not use the computer during the scan
  • If the scan completes with nothing found, click Close to exit.
  • If malicious objects are found, they will show in the Scan results - Select action for found objects and offer three options.
  • Ensure Cure (default) is selected, then click Continue > Reboot now to finish the cleaning process.
  • A log file named TDSSKiller_version_date_time_log.txt (i.e. TDSSKiller. will be created and saved to the root directory (usually Local Disk C:).
  • Copy and paste the contents of that file in your next reply.
