I use Chrome as my primary browser, but I also use FireFox on occasion.
I've had this problem before... and unfortunately I wasn't able to solve it before a major problem with my Hard Drive forced me to wipe it clean and start fresh (boot sector failure, nothing to do with the virus). Anyway, it appears I have this problem again and it's getting rather annoying.
-Searching for suspicious entries with HijackThis. Found some Eastman Kodak stuff (probably from an old printer install that I uninstalled later, but I killed them anyway just to be sure).
-Scanning with AVG 2012, which found a few things but ultimately didn't help. That was yesterday. After starting up the computer this morning it stopped a RUNDLL32.EXE and sent it to quarantine.
-Downloading and scanning with TDSSKiller, which found nothing.
I'm starting to run out of tricks here... so I figured I'd ask for help here.
The main issues are:
-Getting random redirects while clicking Google search results links (Haven't tried with another search engine but I assume it works the same).
-I was getting strange file download confirmations popping up. They were not related to anything I was doing at the time. They looked to be image files by the name, but I canceled every time because... clearly... it had to be something malicious. This seems to have stopped, however. It's possible the AVG Quarantine helped on this issue.
-I was also getting random IE popups (even though I never really use the browser), but like the file downloads, that seems to have stopped too.
So really it seems like the only problem is the redirects. For now, anyway. Never know when this stuff will jump up again.
I have no idea where to even look to fix this kind of a problem because, as I understand it, the redirection method isn't specific to a single file that can be found on the system. But rather... it changes certain settings that are deep in the computer.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
