However, since this, google/yahoo have been redirecting to blank placeholder pages with buttons leading to fake sites (this happens in both Firefox and IE)... I believe this is the google redirect virus (or some iteration).
On top of this, iexplore.exe will run itself (i only use firefox and suddenly iexplore.exe pops up in task manager) WITHOUT an actual window popping up, and strange audio starts playing (it appears to be a talk show?) I have no idea on this one. It's bizarre.
Malwarebytes doesn't pick up anything for either of them, so I'm not sure what to do here.
I'm running Windows XP.
Thanks in advanced!
EDIT: After looking around similar topics in this forum, it appears I have a varaint of TDSS... however its already REALLY bad because I can't even find a way to get TDSSKiller to open, even in safe mode and changing it to a .com extension... I'm posting on another (clean) computer. Hope this isn't the end of my desktop.
