Yesterday night I was googling, I clicked on one of the results for an apparel site and I was redirected.I was brought to a page with googleadservices in the search bar and this message on the page: Internet Explorer Cannot Display The Webpage.This was my first time (and only time since yesterday) being redirected.I've received the aforementioned error message serveral times throughout the weeks: whenever I would log out of my email accounts or when I'm on a site.


It should also be noted that I've also had issues with the email accounts that are being used on this PC: every time the homepage on the accounts are change it is always changed back to the account information page, error messages when logging out,something is preventing us from logging out,etc.

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (v1.50) and save it to your desktop.
Download Link 1
Download Link 2Malwarebytes' may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet and double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
    For instructions with screenshots, please refer to this Guide.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • Malwarebytes will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
  • Under the Scanner tab, make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Click on the Scan button.
  • When finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box, then click the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked and then click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows the database version and your operating system.
  • Exit Malwarebytes' when done.
Note: If Malwarebytes' encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally will prevent Malwarebytes' from removing all the malware.

Also Microsoft Security Essentials found this: Win32/Trafog!rts and quarantined it.

Cool thanks! Will it also take care of this: Win32/Trafog!rts or should I let Microsoft Security Essentials remove it?

I tried TDSS-Killer and it found nothing. Before I did yesterday night I was redirect twice, the pages displayed an error message but in the address bar there was a different address then the page I was on.Also before I did TDSS-Killer Winpatrol tried to update and I got this message: not a valid Win32 Application, so I uninstalled Winpatrol.Also it should be noted that I have MVPS HOSTS on my computer that should be blocking these redirect attempts but it has been failing.



Thanks.

This is going to require a more in-depth look.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

I had this problem a few days ago, but since I usually run applications in sandboxes, I wasn't concerned... until my ever-helpful-other-half decided to use the laptop, my laptop got into this trojan nightmare. What I did (and I understand this won't work for many of you) but I opened a clean VMWare instance, installed the latest Avast! Home (free) edition and did a quick-scan and boot-time scan on my boot copy of Windows. This is what it found (and it seemed to have cured the bleeping redirect from Google searches). Drive letter omitted.

~/Local Settings\Temp\derwy50.html Severity: HIGH Threat: JS:Redirector-FK [Trj]
COMODO\COMODO Internet Security\Quarantine\myzone.exe|>$INSTDIR\is165508.exe Severity: HIGH Threat: Win32:Trojan-gen
System Volume Information\_restore{202550A8-7BCA-9586-051D24DDBF8F}\RP249\A0083931.exe Severity: HIGH Threat: Win32:Trojan-gen


I let it move the files to chest then deleted them. If it's the same culprit, we have a name, if it's not, sorry I just hope it helped find a cure.

I used to use Sandboxie (free), but my work gave me VMWare to use and I couldn't image working without it. However, the latest Avast! Home has sandbox and website rating capabilities that might help curb infections. I don't work for them, nor benefit for mentioning their name. Because of my job, I hit on some questionable client sites and the best I've tried is Avast! and Comodo (free versions) - take into account that my hardware and software isn't typical and this suggestion might not work for you.

The other change I made (and anyone can do this) is to add HostsMan http://download.cnet.com/HostsMan/3000-2381_4-10409169.html that prevents hosts file hijacking. I added the IP for Google as per this page's instructions: http://www.labnol.org/software/browsers/prevent-opendns-google-redirects-firefox-address-bar-ie/2662/

Hope that helps!

Well after the TDSS-Killer scan I checked Microsoft Security Essentials and it removed Win32/Trafog!rts from quarantine.Should I still follow the steps in post number 13.
