Started off with a fake Windows Recovery window and fake hard drive corrupt pop-up.
After that the shortcuts in the the Start Menu where hidden and there was a shortcut on the desktop called "Windows Recovery" the short cut was to a 27582299.exe
McAfee On-Access Scanner detected instances of 27582299.exe FakeAlert!grb (Trojan) and it was deleted.
That this point Google search results were being redirected to various unrelated websites. At random audio files would play in a hidden iexplore.exe instance. Occasionally IE will start with an ad and then close.
The Sys Admin had me run RKill and MalwareBytes
MalwareBytes detected three instances of Trojan.FakeAlert in AppData\Local\Temp
Ran McAfee Full Scan overnight with no detections.
The symptoms continue. Sys Admin is stumped.
Where do I go from here?
