Hello,
I've been looking for some help for my dad's laptop - it seems to have a search engine redirect virus on it, but I don't know how long its been there. Just tonight we removed some 'XP Security 2012' fake antivirus bug and everything seemed fine, but when I opened Firefox or IE the very first result I clicked after a Google/Yahoo search redirected me to some other site, sometimes "get-answers-now" but not always; other times it's a video or picture site. Also, I don't know if this is related, but my dad can't get into his Yahoo email account from this computer or any other computer, though other email accounts besides his own are accessible.

There will usually be an IP address in front of the redirected site. It doesn't happen when I click on a second result from the same search, only the very first one I choose. Then the same thing happens for every new search I start. I can see that the site I'm about to click is legitimate, because I can see the address in the results.
For example, I can get this result in Google:
www.imfbookstore.org/

But when I right click the link and copy the address, this is what I get:
http://www.google.com /url?sa=t&rct=j&q=imf%20bookstore&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CCMQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.imfbookstore.org%2F&ei=0IbuTtn8JaH40gHltr3OCQ&usg=AFQjCNErE3-7I4VMMlmiMCF4ePv3PwdZ1A&cad=rja

I deleted all Firefox and IE cookies, restarted, still having the problem. Malwarebytes can't seem to find anything, so I'm a little lost on what to do at this point. I had downloaded ComboFix upon seeing my problem mentioned elsewhere, but got nervous after I started it and ended up canceling and uninstalling before anything began. DDS and GER logs attached, CD emulation already disabled. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Please do the following:

Please download TDSSKiller.zip
  • Extract it to your desktop
  • Double click TDSSKiller.exe
  • Press Start Scan
    • Only if Malicious objects are found then ensure Cure is selected
    • Then click Continue > Reboot now
  • Copy and paste the log in your next reply
    • A copy of the log will be saved automatically to the root of the drive (typically C:\)


NEXT



Download ComboFix from one of the following locations:
Link 1
Link 2

VERY IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

* IMPORTANT - Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. If you have difficulty properly disabling your protective programs, refer to this link here
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.

  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Posted Image

  • Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

Posted Image

  • Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.
When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.
Notes:
1. Do not mouse-click Combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.
2. Do not "re-run" Combofix. If you have a problem, reply back for further instructions.
