I was hoping to find some help here. I would like to preface this post with the fact that I am in no way new to removing bugs from computers/laptops and I have taken all the possible steps to identify the issue that I could possibly think of (with that being said this is probably going to be a simple problem with a simple solution that I am way overthinking) but anyways I have used Malwarebytes, AVG Pro, CCleaner combo to try to identify the issue at first but nothing was found, after this I manually combed through my registry, used Whatsrunning.exe to see if I am missing any hidden processes or startup bugs, and I have even combed through manually all the windows files/folders and the /Local/ subfolders and still nothing. The issue is that no matter how I try to use google services be it maps, gmail, the search engine, anything, I will get the first search page but after that no matter if I manually type in the search address page number to display different results or if I try to access my mail it always redirects to the first thing I attempted to do. For example if I were to go to google.com and search bananas. I would get the first 20 results, then if I were to try to click next or page 2 or any other page number, it will try to load the next page, then go back to that first search set. If I were to try to log on to my e-mail, I would enter user/pass and hit log in, it would attempt, then go back to the log-in page. Again chances are this is something stupid simple and I am overthinking it but an outside opinion would help. Hope to hear back soon.

*secondary note with doublefacepalm*

Just got done with 3rd set of scans from all 3 programs and Malwarebytes found that the process SVChost.exe had 2 entries that were trojans, and google seems to be working the way it should be for now. I will be looking to see if there is anything that will bring the issues back as it just got rid of the executables and not any possible reg changes the trojans could have made.

Next update. Problem not fixed. TL:DR need help finding specifically which version of SVChost and what it's source is and permanently removing the bugger. It is not showing itself in the list of running processes in whatsrunning.exe so tracking this down will be especially difficult. Will be back on in a few hours, have business to take care of, but help would be much appreciated and if needed I will post up more info as requested.

Please download TDSSKiller.zip and and extract it.
  • Run TDSSKiller.exe.
  • Click on Change Parameters
  • Put a check in the box of Detect TDLFS file system
  • Click Start scan.
  • When it is finished the utility outputs a list of detected objects with description.
    The utility automatically selects an action (Cure or Delete) for malicious objects.
    The utility prompts the user to select an action to apply to suspicious objects (Skip, by default). Let the options as it is and click Continue
  • Let reboot if needed and tell me if the tool needed a reboot.
  • Click on Report and post the contents of the text file that will open.

    Note: By default, the utility outputs the log into system disk (it is usually the disk with installed operating system, C:\) root folder. The Log have a name like: TDSSKiller.Version_Date_Time_log.txt.

Double click the aswMBR.exe to run it.
