I am at my wits end with this problem, and anything I have tried to do has failed in solving this issue: Almost all of my google searches redirect upon clicking the hyperlink for a page. I either have to load up a Cached Page from Google when I search, or copy-paste the url directly into my browser in order to view a page that I get redirected to when trying to open the link. Currently using Win7 64x, and using Firefox 3.6.23.

I have tried:
MBAM Quick, Full, and Flash scans
AVG Full and Rootkit scans
Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool v11
MicroWorld Anti-Virus Toolkit 11
Spybot-S&S
SUPER Antimalware
TDSS Anti-Rootkit scanner
checked HOSTS file
Checked Internet Options for proxy
Checked Firefox options for Proxy
Checked network Options for Proxy
Reset Router.


I am literally at the end of my rope on what else to do besides a full wipe. I'll supply any additional requested information, but please, any help at all would be greatly appreciated

With the information you have provided I believe you will need help from the malware removal team. I would like you to start a new thread HERE and include a link to this thread. Please make sure that you read the information about getting started before you start your thread.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

Hello,

Now for the hard and frustrating part: waiting.

Now that you have posted a log, 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.
