Then it dawned on me that my daughter had "used the pc to print her paper" the night prior to these issues popping up. I wish I could say this is a rare thing for her too, but being that she’s 16, this wouldn't be the first time she has likely infected a PC. So... the first problem is, I have no idea where it possibly originated from.
My anti-virus (ESET) was flagging and quarantining files as they came in however my initial scan with ESET showed no issues other than the files that were intercepted. I did a system restore because at this point, autoruns was showing two totally foreign logon entries that despite being disabled, repeated themselves upon a reboot.
System restore took care of the foreign entries however, the most notable issues after the restore were; a setup file that was attempting to run that I was able to intercept and the biggest issue, a browser hijack. The hijack seemed to be mostly affected via Google searches. Right clicking any link to open in a new tab or window would hijack the page. Typing addresses in directly did not seem to be affected.
Since this time, I have run Spybot S&D which cleaned 4 issues. Malewarebytes did a full scan which cleaned 2 files. It was also suggested that I uninstall ESET and try Microsoft Security Essentials which I did a quick scan on and 4 files were removed and then a full scan in which 1 file was removed.
I have also run MBR which is where I am at with things now. My results indicated a possible TDL3 Rootkit Infection and all of this is starting to get a little out of my realm of knowledge. I must say, I have not turned off system restore to do a fresh clean as of yet but, I will end up doing that as my next step anyhow while I wait for some hopeful help from here.
I am attaching what logs I have at this point. If I can provide any additional information don’t hesitate to ask. Also if it helps any, being that I work from home "virtually" I worried that some of my legitimate programs I require for work may mimic some of the "symptoms" of a virus for instance the Interactive Intelligence Interaction Client.
Thanks in advance for any help it is greatly appreciated!
