Hi all,
I've been having a problem with my iGoogle homepage changing to an unknown address. This is different to other hijackers I've encountered before, it doesn't affect my searches and links are fine but when I open my homepage it redirects after about 3 seconds, new page address is, http://Piupiut(dot)bee(dot)pl/info.php?avted=1&n=506

Incidently, I noted in a recent Malwarebyes report; "2012/02/29 22:46:29 GMT BLUEPOOTER John'n'Lizi IP-BLOCK (Type: outgoing, Port: 61834, Process: iexplore.exe)"

I'm currently running Windows 7 home premium (64bit) and using IE8 (yes I know, but my wife insists she prefers IE)

What I've done so far...

Ran a quick scan with MBAM (removed several malware infections)
Scanned with AVG (all clear)
Cleaned registry with Ccleaner
Ran full scan with MBAM (removed 2 more malware infections)
Ran TDSS Killer (all clear)
Ran MBRcheck (all clear)
Ran RogueKiller (removed 4 more issues)

I'm now out of ideas. I read elsewhere about ComboFix and that led me here, however, after reading the details I'm not inclined to use it without someone more knowledgeable than myself directing me!
Any ideas/help would be greatly appreciated. If you need any more info from me, please ask. Thanks for your time,

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

Thanks Broni, I've posted a topic in the 'virus removal logs' section with all the details.
