Hi, all;

I have been having an issue with some sort of redirecting virus for a couple of months, and I feel like I've tried everything short of editing my registry. I have tried Windows defender, Spybot, malwarebytes, and glary utilities among other things, including a how-to guide on Kim Komando's website (I was despirate). I checked my internet settings to make sure there were no proxies set or anything. The only thing that has shown up on scans is "Exploit:Java/CVE-2010-0840" in Windows defender.

It seems that it always initially redirects me through or feed.buzzclick first, as I can see this in the status bar, before it forwards me to other sites like villabull.com and supfind.com. Also, the problem appears to happen intermittently, affecting something like 1 out of every 6 searches. I should also probably mention that this all started while I was using IE9, and I have now switched back to Firefox. Also, the problem is not limited to one browser; it is affected IE, Firefox, and Chrome.

Anyway, I've pretty much given up trying to solve this on my own, and I would be eternally grateful if someone could help me fix this!

Now that your log is properly posted, 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 Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it 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 Malware Removal 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 Malware Removal Team members are very 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 Malware Removal 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 MRL Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
