Hello,

I know that I have unintentionally installed some kind of malware/adware while downloading a torrent file, (stupid me).

I've tried several cleaning solutions:

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
Xoftspy SE
Kaspersky Virus Removal tool
Webroot Window Washer
etc

Some say I have issues, but dont specify, and and some dont.

I've gone through the task manager, and nothing is new or unfamiliar in there, (and I check regularly)

I just want to stop the redirects.

I found this topic here: Similar post on this board

But that was geared to WinXp which I now don't run

I'm on Windows 7 Pro, and would like any suggestions/help beyond being told to wipe the HDD...unless thats the last option.

Any help is appreciated,

Thanks!

Skot

Hello.

Are you using a router in your home?

Let's try this as well.

Please download the TDSS Rootkit Removing Tool (TDSSKiller.exe) and save it to your Desktop. <-Important!!!
Be sure to download TDSSKiller.exe from Kaspersky's website and not TDSSKiller.zip which appears to be an older version 2.3.2.2 of the tool.
  • Double-click on TDSSKiller.exe to run the tool for known TDSS variants.
    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • If TDSSKiller does not run, try renaming it.
  • To do this, right-click on TDSSKiller.exe, select Rename and give it a random name with the .com file extension (i.e. 123abc.com). If you do not see the file extension, please refer to How to change the file extension.
  • Click the Start Scan button.
  • Do not use the computer during the scan
  • If the scan completes with nothing found, click Close to exit.
  • If malicious objects are found, they will show in the Scan results - Select action for found objects and offer three options.
  • Ensure Cure (default) is selected, then click Continue > Reboot now to finish the cleaning process.
  • A log file named TDSSKiller_version_date_time_log.txt (i.e. TDSSKiller.2.4.0.0_27.07.2010_09.o7.26_log.txt) will be created and saved to the root directory (usually Local Disk C:).
  • Copy and paste the contents of that file in your next reply.
