Hi,

Recently seem to have been infected with some redirection malware.
All my google searches now go via thealtimes.com
Installed noscript to mozilla and it pick up the thealtimes script and blocks it, but googles search links now redirecting back to google main page, and not the intended page.

I have tried all the main spybot / malware removal tools but nothing.
I think this and the easya-z redirect malware are on here, and from what im reding it constantly changes its .exe name etc.

Im trying to use Hijack this to create a log file to show you but for some reason it wont create one even when it asks me if i want it to.

Im loosing all hope here.

Please help !!

Hello, Welcome to BleepingComputer.
I'm nasdaq and will be helping you.

If you can please print this topic it will make it easier for you to follow the instructions and complete all of the necessary steps.

Please download and run this DDS Scanning Tool. Nothing will be deleted. It will just give me some additional information about your system.

  • Download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links if you no longer have it available. Save it to your desktop.
  • Double click on the DDS icon, allow it to run.
  • A small box will open, with an explanation about the tool. No input is needed, the scan is running.
  • Notepad will open with the results.
  • Follow the instructions that pop up for posting the results.
Please note: You may have to disable any script protection running if the scan fails to run.

Please just paste the contents of the DDS.txt log in your next post. DO NOT attach the log.
