Posted 23 April 2011 - 01:50 PM

My computer keeps redirected from listings on Google to obvious affilate/garbage sites. This happens about 3/5 times. It is progressing and beginning to pop up new tabs at random intervals while Firefox is running.

I am unable to run TDSSKiller. It goes 80% of the way to initial run then says Windows is unable to run the program and will look for a solution. Click the Look for Solution tab, and the program just shuts down. This also happens when I rename the file.

I am running Windows Vista, and having trouble with some of these help programs not being given the option to Run as Administrator.

It seems like the program knows what can stop it, and either shuts the program down or Blue Screens the computer and reboots.

I've also tried: MalwareBytes, HiJackThis, RKill (Blue Screens and reboots), ComboFix (which found a problem, fixed it, but the problem remained), Hitman (identified problem, but ignored it/wouldn't fix it). I think that's everything.

During running of GMER, computer Blue Screened and Restarted (after about 20 minutes into the GMER scan). So I'm unable to provide a GMER Scan File here...

Trued GMER again. It went futher, but went haywire finding things while searching: C:\Windows\winsxs\ it went haywire finding things and locked up. I will attach what I could get of an ARK File... which was what it found in the first 5 minutes of running. Everything else couldn't be saved for whatever reason... It also has made my computer unable to open Notepad files or Maximize anything in the system tray at the bottom of the screen.

Here are the logs I could get:

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine.
If you are unable to create a log because your computer cannot start up successfully please provide detailed information about the Windows version you are using: What we in particular need to know is version, edition and if it is a 32bit or a 64bit system.
If you are unsure about any of these caracteristics, just let us know and we'll help you figuring it out. Please also tell us if you have your Windows CD/DVD handy.

Please include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Please refrain from running tools or applying updates other than those we suggest while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process.

Even if you have already provided information about your PC, we need a new log to see what has changed since you originally posted your problem.
We need to create an OTL Report
  • Please download OTL from one of the following mirrors:
  • Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
  • In the custom scan box paste the following:
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Two reports will open, copy and paste them in a reply here:
    • OTL.txt <-- Will be opened
    • Extra.txt<--Will be minimized

In the upper right hand corner of the topic you will see a button called Watch Topic.I suggest you click it and select Immediate E-Mail notification and click on Proceed. This way you will be advised when we respond to your topic and facilitate the cleaning of your machine.

After 5 days if a topic is not replied to we assume it has been abandoned and it is closed.

regards myrti
