So I recently had the Windows XP recovery virus and managed to get rid of the relentless popups by running rkiller then several malware removal (Spybot, malwarebytes)

But I still have afew problems that need solving:

- Google redirecting (And redirecting my web adress bar if i type in manually) me and TDSSkiller wont run to sort this out
- Everytime computer starts up, it loads for a moment, brings up an ACER screen, then restarts and comes to the "start in safe with networking/last known good config/normal" and will only start if last known good config is selected other wise it just keeps restarting.
- And I have no sounds on online videos.

I would like to solve these issues without posting a registry log thing if this is possible, any help appreciated.

On completion of the scan click "Save log", save it to your desktop and post in your next reply:

NOTE. aswMBR will create MBR.dat file on your desktop. This is a copy of your MBR. Do NOT delete it.


Please download Rootkit Unhooker from one of the following links and save it to your desktop.
Link 1 (.exe file)
Link 2 (zipped file)
Link 3 (.rar file)In order to use this tool if you downloaded from either of the second two links, you will need to extract the RKUnhookerLE.exe file using a program capable of extracing ZIP and RAR compressed files. If you don't have an extraction program, you can download, install and use the free 7-zip utility.

  • Double-click on RKUnhookerLE.exe to start the program.
    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Click the Report tab, then click Scan.
  • Check Drivers, Stealth, and uncheck the rest.
  • Click OK.
  • Wait until it's finished and then go to File > Save Report.
  • Save the report to your Desktop.
  • Copy and paste the contents of the report into your next reply.
-- Note: You may get this warning...just ignore it, click OK and continue: "Rootkit Unhooker has detected a parasite inside itself! It is recommended to remove parasite, okay?".
