Greetings Friend,

This is driving me batty!

What I know is going on: There is a "server" on my computer running a redirect, and some sort of program that is setting my proxy settings to so that it can change what page I am on during a google search. Unfortunately I cannot locate it, or haven't yet anyhow.

I decided to install AVG (only antivirus on my computer now) which tossed me 6 threats 3 to do with iexplorer.exe and 3 to do with firefox.exe I removed/cleaned these. I was still getting the redirect, and still getting popups from AVG stating the dropper.generic_c.mmi So I restarted in safe mode ran AVG again and cleaned everything again. Unfortunately this time I wasn't paying much attention to what I was doing because my I was watching my daughter, but alas I still have the same problems. I then proceded to do searches and look through possible solutions. I found that each solution that was presented thus far didn't match my system. For example it said look for a specific service or exe file running and stop that process then delete this, well neither the exe was running nor did I have that file that was to be deleted.

At this point I found this site and as per my ego downloaded the ComboFix.exe as directed to another user. Then researched the program ComboFix.exe Where I seen tutorials on how it is used and the different switches used with the program. I ran the program three times in a row, maybe four. Once in safe mode. I also restarted between each run. Still have the redirect virus. At this point I am defering to the forum expertise.

The main reason I ran the ComboFix so many times was I did not see all the screens in the tutorials (which may not exist with my windows 7 installation) I do not see any log files in C:\ either. Also I am deferring because I seen something I believe will help fix my problem but it said that the information was particular for that user and may screw up my system.
