If this is posted in wrong section I apologize in advance:

I have contracted the clicklivesearch browser redirect. The IP on redirect:

I have tried Combofix,full scans of Mbam, SAS, and Nortons (bullbleep) Eraser. I have ran Tdss Killer multiple times. I have checked hosts file (and manually created a new one). I have reset IE and Firefox to defaults and cleared deleted items/cache/content ie/etc. Cleared prefetch.

Software specs:

Windows 7 Pro 64 bit (Legit and avtivated)
IE 9 [update ver. 9.0.12)
All windows updates installed (As far as i am aware)

My next steps:

Using Hijack-this and checking helper objects. Perhaps using G-part to see if there are any hidden or eroneous partitions.

Edit: It is also occuring in Firefox (Ver. 17.0.1)

Edit 2: I have reset winsock and ran both Hijack-this and Lspfix. No dice.

Please advise. Thanks in advance for any who care to help. A fine stout is all I have to offer for assistance:

also, Misnamed topic: clicksearch.now is my issue

Edit 3: Apparently I have the "Scour" . Rootkit?

Hello, having run ComboFix and having Scour.... We need to see the Combo log and a DDS log from this guide.

Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.

Let me know if all went well.
