Hi. I'm a new member, tried to solve this problem on my own but can't. My computer is a Dell running 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium. Lately it started redirecting me to websites from the one I wanted. The addresses vary, but usually end up at a list of click options, sometimes with a green arrow inviting me to "proceed." Some of the addresses include "clk.atdmt.com" and "get-amazing-results.com" I tried to turn on my Windows firewall (I know, should have done it before), and could not. Trying to research this keeps getting me redirected. I downloaded and ran AVG in Safe mode. Also did the same with RKILL, than Malwarebytes. A number of Trojans (some maybe back door?) were found. I've continued to scan, and I think all have been eliminated except one-- I hope.
It is Trojan horse Dropper.Generic_c.MMI. This is found but "white listed" as "critical/system file that should not be removed," so AVG and Malwarebytes doesn't. Occassionally AVG pops up that it's been found but my only option is "Ignore the threat."
My questions are, what to do with the Trojan Dropper (ignore, or destroy and how to do it); and, how to stop this website redirection, which is really the main problem in the first place, and might or might not be related.
Thanks for any help anyone can give me-- I'm pretty ignorant about all this stuff. GeorgeX
