Hi, I am having trouble with using google on a computer running Windows XP SP3. The links from search results are being redirected through the pages "basic-search.net", "get-answers-fast.com" and "easyA-Z.com".
Steps taken so far:
Attempted manual removal of files after searching for this problem on google. Located and removed files in
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Network\Downloader
"qmgr0.dat" and "qmgr1.dat".
These had to be removed in safe mode - upon restarting they were back again.
Scanned computer using malwarebytes and spybot s&d. Other than tracker cookies, no problems were detected.
Scanned computer using TDSSkiller, which found nothing either. Some unregistered drivers were found when the optional settings were enabled.
Attempted scan using combofix, based on the success story here:
although this stalls soon after it starts scanning for infected files.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
