Hello everyone! im new to this forum. anyways, I have an asus g51gx-a1 w/ windows 7 64 bit... i recently picked up the google redirect virus, and searched removed it via some of the methods i found in these forums.. however, in the midst of trying to remove the issue, i seem to have created another one: whenever i try to access my d:\ partition, my computer seems to run EXTREMELY slow. for instance, i can turn on my computer & everything runs perfectly normal.. i can access any program/file on c:\, as well as any file on an external. but the second i try to open d:\, or any program that accesses files on d:\, its completely lagged out. CPU & RAM usage dont jump up. im guessing this MIGHT be a malware issue, but ive ran just about every possible recommended scanner/program
The wierd part is- this problem started happening the second i downloaded ComboFIX onto d:\(when i was trying to address my google redirect issue). i originally downloaded it from the bleepingcomputer.com mirror. mcafee was denying the download(as expected) so i turned the live protection off. the second opened up combofix, nothing happened, except for a few quick screen blips.
i re-downloaded combofix onto my desktop & was able to run it from there. here's what ive done so far:
from safe mode:
run kaspersky antivirus 2012
ive also run super superantispyware, ccleaner, & kaspersky tdss killer
im totally stumped on this, again, i suspect it's still a possible malware problem(rkill shuts down system32.dll everytime i run safemode) so im assuming something is still running in the background.
anyone have any sortof insight?
