Hi. I'm in the process of going through all the steps to figure out why my Google search links are often being redirected, and think I may have stumbled upon a cause. Rkill and Malwarebytes are not picking it up at all (in normal or safe modes). So now I'm just looking for anything suspicious. In going through my Firefox history, out pops "Redirect" (around the middle of screen shot below). Wow, can it really be named so ridiculously too obvious???

Looking at the location for it, I'm almost done typing "cpcadnet.com" into a Google search, when I suddenly get a full blue screen of death with some huge warning on it that I was being shut down! Within seconds, my computer crashed and was restarting on its own. As it was rebooting, I went directly into Safe Mode with Networking, and first get this recovery notice (can someone please translate to tell me WTH happened?):

Next, I get back to searching for info on "cpcadnet" (still in Safe Mode), but find virtually nothing being said about it related to a virus, malware, etc.

So I challenge myself to stare down the monster directly, expecting another all-out attack of some kind, and go to www.cpcadnet.com ...

and get this:

Yep, just "HELLO!"

Interestingly, I noticed that when I searched here on bleepingcomputer.com forums for "cpcadnet", almost every one of the 26 results found are related to the Google Redirect problem. In looking through those, nobody discusses cpcadnet directly (well, one person inquired – but the tech involved didn't respond on it). But my Google highlighter picks it up buried within every one of their Adware Tracking Cookie lists!

Lastly, I try the other cpcadnet link in my Firefox history (as follows):

and instantly get redirected to an ad page every time. AH-HA!!! :dance:

I have no idea how to fix it, but it sure seems to be the most likely culprit.

Also consider this - in using Google search today, I was redirected to the bogus "Windows 7 Repair" virus page. Recognized it immediately, because I was attacked by this thing about a week ago (not aware of the redirect problem yet, I happened to be searching for Windows 7 info at the time, and thought it was a legit MS page). So if the cpcadnet redirect was intended to "harmlessly" point us to mere advertising, why would this page be included?! I'm willing to bet they are all working in conjunction, to advertise crap and infect our machines to oblivion until we are tortured into paying their hostage fees! Come to think of it - that's exactly what they're doing! It's all about THE MONEY!!

Meanwhile, still need a fix for it... help please?

(Please note this was originally posted in the "Am I infected?" forum, where some basic efforts were made to provide assistance, but unforntunately nothing was accomplished. I have re-posted here as advised by Grinler, in hopes of finding the most qualified assistance for this particular issue.)
The link to the original post is: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic406125.html/page__p__2308598__fromsearch__1

Please also note that I am currently unable to run a Windows 7 backup, as I tried twice today and both times received a blue screen automatic shutdown (likely due to some other nifty feature of this malware infection - ugh). This thing is killing me!


Please help!

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help. No one is ignored here.

Please take note:

  • If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know.
  • If you are unable to create a log because your computer cannot start up successfully please provide detailed information about your installed Windows Operating System including the Version, Edition and if it is a 32bit or a 64bit system.
    • If you are unsure about any of these characteristics just post what you can and we will guide you.
  • Please tell us if you have your original Windows CD/DVD available.
  • If you are unable to perform the steps we have recommended please try one more time and if unsuccessful alert us of such and we will design an alternate means of obtaining the necessary information.
  • If you have not done so, include a clear description of the problems you're having, along with any steps you may have performed so far.
  • Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review your topic an do their best to resolve your issues.
  • If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
  • Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.

We need to see some information about what is happening in your machine. Please perform the following scan again:

  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links if you no longer have it available. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explanation about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
  • Close the program window, and delete the program from your desktop.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run. After downloading the tool, disconnect from the internet and disable all antivirus protection. Run the scan, enable your A/V and reconnect to the internet.

Information on A/V control HERE

We also need a new log from the GMER anti-rootkit Scanner.

Please note that if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows you will not be able to run GMER and you may skip this step.

Please first disable any CD emulation programs using the steps found in this topic:

Why we request you disable CD Emulation when receiving Malware Removal Advice

Then create another GMER log and post it as an attachment to the reply where you post your new DDS log. Instructions on how to properly create a GMER log can be found here:

How to create a GMER log

Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

Hi pnut,

I will be handling your log to help you get cleaned up. I apologize for the delay but the forum is very busy and as you can see the logs we ask for are very extensive and take a lot of time to investigate.

Please subscribe to this topic. Click on the Watch Topic button, select Immediate Notification and click on proceed.

Make sure Word Wrap in notepad is turned off. When copying and pasting logs paste them directly in the reply box only attach logs if asked to. Do not wrap logs in codebox or code tags. It makes it very difficult to read and analyze them. Please paste them directly into the reply box. Do not make any changes to your system until we are through. Fixes are based upon information that is current from your system so any changes can affect our strategy. Please refrain from running any tools we may use without specific instructions.

If your operating system is Windows Vista or Windows 7 it may be necessary to right click then choose Run as Administrator any programs we use.

Before we begin please check and follow the instructions on How to Show Hidden Files and Folders in Windows Vista and Windows XP and How to show hidden files in Windows 7

Because the e-mail notification system is not completely reliable, please check your topic once a day for responses.

Please read carefully all directions and instructions. If you are instructed to save a tool to the desktop please save it to the desktop. If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know.

I need to see the current state of your machine. Please follow the directions in Post #2.

In your next reply please post DDS.txt in the body of the reply box and attach the Attach.txt log. There is no need to zip the attach log. :)

Yes. Sorry, just been buried alive in work lately and do not have time to run all the steps involved right now. It is the exact same problem as posted before under "Am I Infected", and nothing has changed. I know you guys prefer fresh info, but can I trouble you to please look through that post and give me your initial thoughts?

Yes, still need help, but still buried alive in work. I promise to run the logs you need when free. Please let it ride open for now. The google search redirects are still happening daily.
