My Yahoo email account is spamming my contacts! Also, Google links redirect me to other sites. I have Windows XP Professional SP3 I've scanned with Housecall (full scan), Malwarebyres, SpyBot, CCleaner, AdAware, Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool and Hijackthis all to no avail... they find NOTHING. I even went to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc and discovered the hosts file was renamed to hosts~ and another hosts file was created with "localhost 127.0.0.1" in there. So, I renamed that file and renamed the hosts~ back to hosts. I'm still having the same problem. Does ANYONE have any idea what I can do short of debug/reformatting???

Try TDSSKiller

Local host 127.0.0.1 should be in the host file.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Hello J.R. Sanford,

Thank you for the clarification. I have moved your DDS log to your other topic which is here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic400754.html and have pasted in the information from your post above into the other topic. I then merged the two posts into one.

The reason why you could not attach the attach text or the gmer log is that attachments are disabled in this forum. Additionally, we do not analyze these logs outside of the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum.

I realize that you wish your system fixed as soon as possible. Please note, however, that we have hundreds of people seeking assistance. I know it's difficult and frustrating to wait.

Because you have posted a log, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
