Hi, one of the lines from HijackThis log is:
04 - HKLM\..\Run: [Esoxopegogajeku] rundll32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\eqilusef.dll",Startup
and I couldn't find any info online about it - can I check and "fix checked" it in HijackThis?

I checked that one item in HijackThis and "fix checked" - report successful; however it returned again on startup.
Same thing deleting that value from registry and it returned on startup. I found eqilusef.dll in the windows directory but could not delete - "Access denied" (probably b/c it was in use).
Startup safe mode and removed the value again from registry and then was able to delete eqilusef.dll from windows dir.
No more value on startup - to date.
This all started b/c of redirect virus.
Thanks again!

If you had the google redirects, be sure to use this guide as well:

Yes, I followed a clean/removal pattern I was seeing on the other forum topics and looking through my logs:
TDSSKiller - Clear Java Cache - TFC - MBAM - HijackThis... and that's where that file turned up.
Worked great (so far) - thanks guys!
