Hello!

I did try using the search tool to find a solution, but this may be a newer type of adware virus.

It's another search engine redirector - when I search for anything in google, it just redirects me to an advertisement or sales site, with the redirection link containing "wonderfulsearchsystem.com"

I tried googling a solution, but the first few results for a "solution" are from one of those websites that "scans your computer for viruses for free," AKA, puts a bunch of crap on your computer and makes you buy their software.

Was hoping someone here might have a solution.

I've tried Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware, so far neither could remove it, and both have been updated.

Please let me know if you can help, or I've missed a topic with the solution.

Thank you!

ADDITIONALLY, it randomly pops up a website in my browser - one of it's advertising clients, no doubt - whether or not my browser is open.

Here's a strange one...

Only started a couple of days ago, but everything works fine after i restart my computer, but after about an hour or so, it seems that all of my internet access gets shut down. I have a landline in my computer, as well as wireless with an excellent connection. Like I said, everything works fine, until a certain point. When this point is reached, Firefox just stops loading pages completely. I can click any of my Bookmarks, and it will show the address in the address bar, and the loading bar at the bottom right will say "Done," but the tab heading will just say "Untitled" and the page will display noting. In Internet Explorer, it just says that the page cannot be displayed, and any computer games I have can no longer connect to the internet. I KNOW it is not my internet connection, because it is still operating a couple of other computers, as well as my Xbox. It works for a while after I restart, but then completely prevents me from accessing the internet. A problem similar to the ones people describe here:

Any ideas?

Thank you for the assistance, and apologies for my scattered posts. I've ran into an issue with GMER. The guide says I should have all but a few boxes checked, but I am only able to check certain ones... I've attached a screen shot of what I am talking about. In step 8 of the guide, you will see how it should look... Posted Image

Ugh... Potential major meltdown. says windows can't detect any hard drive space, and I'm getting the following critical error:

Running very slowly as well. While I was running GMER, the computer closed all open windows and gave me an error like that. I'm not sure if it was the exact one because my computer restarted itself when I closed the message out.

HELP!

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic421645.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.

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