Hello! I've been reading around, as I've seen this virus has been hitting a lot of people recently. I was first hit with the Windows XP Recovery Virus yesterday, ran MBAM and Spybot S&D and completely removed it, among other things, from my computer. I am running Windows XP SP3. I decided to make a topic because I wasn't sure if my case was any different, so I figured I'd rather be safe than sorry.

However, even after that fact, I noticed there was still a Google Redirection virus, along with a rogue "iexplore.exe" process that would return after being killed. I believe the two are connected, and I ended up changing the name of iexplore.exe to _iexplore.exe, killed the process, and it has yet to return, but I am still having the redirection problem. I've run searches through MBAM, Spybot, and Trojan Hunter (both in and out of safe mode), nothing has come up. TDSS Killer will not run. Any help would be appreciated!

Not sure where to start, but I have a few logs from MBAM and Hijack this, if needed, let me know. Thank you very much!
