Hi, I was suffering some google redirects on a Windows 7 laptop which has up to date McAfee total protection installed. I ran Malwarebytes which didn't detect anything. I then ran rkill first - which also didn't detect anything. ESET online scanner didn't detect anything either. I tried Kaspersky's TDSSkiller, but that didn't detect anything either. Combofix log says that userinit.exe is infected. I'm not too familiar with combofix, so I thought I'd better ask the experts and here I am. I would be obliged if you advise me on how to proceed.

Thank you in advance.

Please follow the instructions in This Guide starting at Step 6.

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 try 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.

Additionally, since you ran Combofix, you should include the Combofix log (located at C:\Combofix.txt) in your new topic


If I am helping you, it has been 48 hours since your last post, and I have yet to reply to your topic, please send me a PM
