Hello there, I have joined Bleepingcomputer in search of help of this nasty virus I have.
It's a re-direction virus and whenever I click on a link, it re-directs me to "goingonearth.com"

I always have to use the cached version but I'd like to get this fixed :).
It occurs when I Google something and click the link, although if I type in a link or click a link sent by a friend, it'll work fine.


It's basically when I click a link from a Google search results. I've tried Malwarebytes, but it didn't pick anything up.
Can anyone help me, :blink:?

Thanks in advance.

Hello and welcome.. Please run these next.
Is this XP? what is your Antivirus?
ownload Security Check from HERE, and save it to your Desktop.

* Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
* Follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.


Please download the TDSS Rootkit Removing Tool (TDSSKiller.exe) and save it to your Desktop. <-Important!!!
Be sure to download TDSSKiller.exe (v2.5.9.0) from Kaspersky's website and not TDSSKiller.zip which appears to be an older version 2.3.2.2 of the tool.
  • Double-click on TDSSKiller.exe to run the tool for known TDSS variants.
    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • If TDSSKiller does not run, try renaming it.
  • To do this, right-click on TDSSKiller.exe, select Rename and give it a random name with the .com file extension (i.e. 123abc.com). If you do not see the file extension, please refer to How to change the file extension.
  • Click the Start Scan button.
  • Do not use the computer during the scan
  • If the scan completes with nothing found, click Close to exit.
  • If malicious objects are found, they will show in the Scan results - Select action for found objects and offer three options.
  • Ensure Cure (default) is selected, then click Continue > Reboot now to finish the cleaning process.
  • A log file named TDSSKiller_version_date_time_log.txt (i.e. TDSSKiller.2.4.0.0_27.07.2010_09.o7.26_log.txt) 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.


If TDSSKiller does not run, try renaming it. To do this, right-click on TDSSKiller.exe, select Rename and give it a random name with the .com file extension (i.e. 123abc.com). If you do not see the file extension, please refer to these[/color] instructions. In some cases it may be necessary to redownload TDSSKiller and randomly rename it before downloading and saving to the computer

Hello, thanks for the response. I am running a x64 bit Windows 7 OS.

I tried to do the SecurityCheck and the command prompt ran and I followed all instructions, but it kept on saying 'Find is not recognized as a internal of external command", which I believe is a setting with the environmental variables and my version of Java.

I also tried to save TDSS.exe to my desktop but it said, "Could not save to location. An unknown error occured", so I saved it to "Downloads". I then ran the scan and I got no results.
I also updated MalwareBytes like you said and here is my log,

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.51.0.1200
www.malwarebytes.org

Database version: 7043

Windows 6.1.7600

I think as of the errors we will need a deeper look.

We need a deeper look. Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9,which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If Gmer won't run,(it may not like the 64) skip it and move on.
Let me know if that went well.
