Ok, I seem to have the same stupid virus that everyone else is getting right now. I do not use IE, but a quick startup of IE and google searches for about five minutes brings up no redirects. Using firefox, I get about 85% redirects, most of them to fast-find-answers.com, which seems to be the same one everyone else is getting.

I've had no other infections and this seems to be the only symptom.

I have Malwarebytes and have ran it several times. It found one thing, and only one thing, only once. The log is below:

Since then, the redirect in firefox still exists, but MBAM finds nothing.

How do you want me to proceed?

Sorry for the long time on the reply.

It was fixed, now it is back. Not only is it back, it has now infected IE. I do not think it is a new infection, we have the computer separated by account, and even though both sides have admin rights, one side stayed infected while the other did not.

As you can tell, it lasted for about three weeks before it has now re-infected firefox (and IE now), along with making the computer run like snot.

Same story. Only difference is now goored fix doesn't find anything and doesn't fix anything.

Goored fix log I just took:

It did pick up one thing yesterday, but only the one thing, and only once. Since then, nothing has popped up. The log from yesterday (Malwarebytes):

With the information you have provided I believe you will need help from the malware removal team.
Please make sure that you read the information about getting started first.
Then start a new thread HERE and include or required logs.
Including a link to this thread will be helpful.

Good luck and be patient. Help is on the way!

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic418866.html you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :cherry:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
