I believe that my computer is infected with a redirect virus which is stopping access to youtube. I have tried several basic attempts which usually fix such problems, but I have had no luck. A trace route showed that the youtube ip that the computer is using is not an actual youtube ip address. Additionally, during the basic steps, I was unable to complete the GMER scan. After several attempts, every time i try to run GMER, I receive an error message and GMER shuts down.

Good evening. :)

Please work through the following, in order:

Download HostsXpert by FunkyToad from here and save it to your Desktop.

You will need to extract the file(s):
Right click on the zipped folder and from the menu that appears, click on Extract All...
In the 'Extraction Wizard' window that opens, click on Next> and in the next window that appears, click on Next> again.
In the final window, click on Finish

You should now see the HostsXpert folder - open it and double click HostsXpert.exe
  • In the top left hand corner of the new window, ensure that the button says "Make ReadOnly?"
    If it says "Make Writable?", click it and it should change to the above.
  • Click on Restore MS Hosts File.
  • In the confirmation window, click on OK.
  • Finally, click the button mentioned above to make it read "Make Writable?".


Pay a visit to the ESET Online Scanner.

  • Click the ESET Online Scanner button and a new window will open - you may need to maximise it.
  • Click the Run ESET Online Scanner button in the new window.
  • If you are using any other browser than IE, you will be prompted to download and run esetsmartinstaller_enu.exe and the scan will run from within the window that the executable opens.
  • Regardless of which browser you are using, you will be shown some terms and conditions and you will need to accept these to continue.
  • If you are running IE for this scan you will then be prompted to allow an ActiveX component to be downloaded, unless you already have it installed, and the scan will run inside IE.
  • When you see the Computer Scan Settings window, you will need to make the following changes:

    • UNCHECK Remove found threats - this is important.
    • Check Scan archives
    • Click on Advanced settings
    • Check Scan for potentially unsafe applications
  • Once ready, click Start to begin - not a surprise really!
  • The anti-virus definitions will now be downloaded, so don't forget to allow them through your firewall if prompted.
  • The above will take a little time, so now is a good time to fire up the kettle and open the biccies.
  • Once the scan has completed you will be shown the results - assuming that the scanner has found anything.
  • Click List of found threats and then Export to text file... and save the log somewhere convenient.
  • You can then close out the scanner - don't bother uninstalling it as you may need to use it again.
  • Please post the contents of this file in your next reply, or let me know that nothing was identified.

Will you also throw in a fresh DDS log and let me know how the PC is behaving.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
