1. Windows XP Professional

2. My searches are being hijacked and rerouted to GimmieAnswers. I was looking for a keygen for Ciscos Network Magic since they won't help me recover my lost one. Anywho. I've recently wiped and reinstalled XP Professional and hadn't downloaded an anti-malware yet. *head desk* Since GimmieAnswers has reared its ugly head I've been getting errors from Opera about a corrupt file (I use Opera and FireFox - both are doing the same). It may be related and it may not but thought I would include it in case it gives anyone a better idea of what is going on. Last night I turned the comp off and the Opera issue started today when I turned back on. If its not part of the issue no worries I'll drop it until the Gimmie Answers is fixed.

3. I have run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and CCleaner. I searched through the posts on here (I love this site) to see what I could do but decided that it might be best to ask for help instead. lol So I've also downloaded tdsskiller (just remembered that I've run that and didn't find anything) and combofix (after reading the instructions thought I better ask for help before running).

Okay, I can't think of anymore info even after reading the "before you post..." topic. So, uhm, Help?

Hello senare,to clear this we need a deeper look. Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6-9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If GMER won't run skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.
