Starting Monday April 25, when I shut down, I got a blue screen. Never happened before.
I tried system restore, nothing. I tried to do microsoft updates, since the blue screen seemed to say that it's possible that drivers are out of date, but for some reason, I am unable to update. Then I realized that when I was doing a search on the web, it would redirect me to another unrelated site.
So now I think I have the redirect virus that may also be affecting any microsoft updates to my machine.
I have tried Malwarebytes (free version). I have Trend Micro installed and while it did find some items (like a couple of trojans) and deleted the infected file, I still kept getting the blue screen.
Eventually, I restored my laptop with a backup that I had from end of December 2010. The restore I chose was on the whole hard drive. After the restore, it attempted to reboot and bluescreen happened again. I forced the reboot and after rebooting, I installed Malwarebytes again from a USB (note that I had my internet disconnected). Did a scan and found and fixed a backdoor.bot. Then I ran trend micro---found nothing. Then I rebooted again, and this time, no blue screen. Then I connected to the internet so I can update Malwarebytes and Trend Micro, and re-run those two and found nothing. At this point I was hoping I no longer had the redirect virus as this only started to manifest itself in the past week and since I restored my entire Hard Drive from a December back up. Alas...no luck. I did a search, it did bring me to the correct site but then a pop up opened to another site and as soon as it did that, I turned my router off.
Anyway, after many searches, I tried to do a TDSSKiller by Kaspersky but for some reason I could not get it to work. When I ran the exe file it would say that it failed to execute or run or something like that. So my sister recommended to do the Combofix. Then found your site...
I realize that I did the Combofix before reading the Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help...so pardon me if I am requesting help in interpreting the log.
May you please help me?
I would appreciate your help.
