I am working on a Toshiba Satellite, system Windows XP service pack 3.

About a week ago, when I tried to access the internet on Firefox, the searches were consistently diverted to other sites. AVG did not detect the cause. I was advised that it was malware, and examined the computer with SpyNoMore, Exterminate it! and Malwarebytes’ Anti-malware, and then with Microsoft Essentials. Exterminate It! Pointed out some Trojans, which I dealt with by hand, but they came back again. Malwarebytes and MSE both diagnosed rootkit: Trojan:DOS Alureon. They said that they could not remove the files. AVG has just blocked Exploit Blackhole Exploit Kit (type 2022). Meanwhile, Malwarebytes’ is blocking a series of outgoing attempts to contact “potentially malicious sites”.

I get at least one blue screen almost time I boot up now, on one occasion five or six. I am backing up data from my C and D drives, because I do not know when will be the last opportunity to do so.

I have been working with computers for years, but I am not expert at working with programming, and have practically no experience with editing the registry. But I can follow instructions and I am on a fairly steep learning curve right now.

If anyone can help, I will be very grateful.

Hello please run these and see how you are.

How to remove Google Redirects or the TDSS, TDL3, or Alureon rootkit using TDSSKiller

Please post back the two scan logs. Copy and paste the contents in your next reply.

A log file named TDSSKiller_version_date_time_log.txt (i.e. TDSSKiller. will be created and saved to the root directory (usually Local Disk C:).
Copy and paste the contents of that file in your next reply.

The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
