The main trouble seems to be when I access my Firefox. I had a skin on there, but now it's back to default, and when I try to search in google and click on those links, I get redirected. I'm using Windows Vista 64 bit.

I ran rkill and Malwarebytes' twice, but it seems to keep returning. Am I missing something that can permanently help repair my computer?

Update: I restarted Firefox, and it started telling me for some websites that a proxy was refusing connection.

Please download GMER from one of the following locations and save it to your desktop:
  • Main Mirror
    This version will download a randomly named file (Recommended)
  • Zipped Mirror
    This version will download a zip file you will need to extract first. If you use this mirror, please extract the zip file to your desktop.
  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  • Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  • Note: If you downloaded the zipped version, extract the file to its own folder such as C:\gmer and then double-click on gmer.exe.

  • Exit GMER and be sure to re-enable your anti-virus, Firewall and any other security programs you had disabled.

IMPORTANT! If for some reason GMER refuses to run, try again.

Still waiting for a response, but to update:

I've done some other things like running Malwarebytes in safe mode. It doesn't seem like I have this problem anymore, but you can certainly let me know if I missed anything.

I do have a new problem and I'm wondering if I can just continue on in the same thread, or if I have to make a new one.

It seems like the shortcuts for my applications aren't working. I tried opening up Notepad, but it tells me that the shortcut location has been changed or moved. Is this due to an infection?

If you edit your reply to include some new log I'm not getting any email notification.

How many shortcuts are not working?

Your "hosts" file has been hijacked.

Please, go here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/972034#FixItForMeAlways and click on "Fix it" button to reset your "hosts" file.

Now we need to recreate "hosts" file.

Open Notepad.
Paste the following text into it:

# Copyright (c) 1993-2006 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
#  	102.54.94.97 	rhino.acme.com      	# source server
#   	38.25.63.10 	x.acme.com          	# x client host

127.0.0.1   	localhost
::1         	localhost

Go File>Save As and...

1. Name the file hosts. (no extension; make sure there is just a "dot" at the end <--- VERY IMPORTANT!)
2. Make sure, "Save as type:" is set to "All Files (*.*)
3. File is saved to C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC folder

Posted Image

NOTE.
If you receive You don't have permission to save in this location message take ownership of C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc folder: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/add-take-ownership-to-explorer-right-click-menu-in-vista/
If the above doesn't work save the file to some known location, like your desktop, copy it from there and paste it to "etc" folder.

A lot of my shortcuts haven't been working. My girlfriend, who also uses my laptop, told me recently that the Team Fortress 2 shortcut hadn't been working for a couple of weeks now. Testing it out, a bunch of application shortcuts don't seem to be working, but they only seem to apply to the shortcuts included at the top of my "Start" Menu except for Firefox. I can still access Notepad directly through C:\Windows\System32\notepad.exe, and I've since then made a desktop shortcut temporarily.

I'll make a second post after this once I've gone through the rest of your suggestions.

I guess you'll have to recreate those shortcuts manually.

You did something wrong when rebuilding "hosts" file.

Please download SystemLook from one of the links below and save it to your Desktop.
Download Mirror #1
Download Mirror #2

64-bit users go HERE
  • Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
  • Vista\Win 7 users:: Right click on SystemLook.exe, click Run As Administrator
  • Copy the content of the following box into the main textfield:
    :dir
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
    
  • Click the Look button to start the scan.
  • When finished, a notepad window will open with the results of the scan. Please post this log in your next reply.
Note: The log can also be found on your Desktop entitled SystemLook.txt

That's weird, I did exactly as was instructed, but I guess my computer's still saving it as a txt file, even though I did All Files?
