Hi,

Currently having a problem with my Windows Vista SP2 machine.

Google Search results re-direct to spam sites, and directly typed url's take a long time to open.

Current Anti-Virus - AVG 2011 fully updated says my hosts file is infected and quarantines the file.

If I re-create the file from scratch, almost instantly populates with addresses for all security sites. - 127.0.0.1 free.avg.com etc

AVG full scan finds C:\Windows\system32\b.dll to be infected by Trojan horse small.COG - If i remove it, the file re-creates itself.

Have ran Malwarebytes, Hitman Pro 3.5 and SUPERantispyware scans.
Malwarebytes finds nothing, Hitman Pro finds the b.dll file and says it is a rootkit and SUPERantispyware finds a Malware.Trace file, unsure where.


Pleaes can anyone help with removing this virus/trojan?

Kind Regards
