Windows 7 Professional
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?

Thank you.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
