A few days ago, I noticed some odd behavior from my computer, unsure of the source as to how I got it, but I've been experiencing and noticed the following odd quirks:


- My IE and Chrome google searches, half the time, get redirected to various ad sites.  This raises a rootkit/TDSS flag to me.


- Typing in IE, Chrome and some other programs becomes troublesome, as keystrokes are not registered.


- Extremely slow loading times for most websites that I know I am able to load much faster.


- Multple IE processes in background, even if IE is not loaded.  Force-closing the IE processes does not work, as they either reload themselves, or they stay down for some minutes but pop up at a later time.


Luckily, I must have either a light (possible) version of it, or just one that isn't as vicious, as I can still seemingly run anti-virus software and other such programs without any trouble.  But it doesn't seem to help the problem.


I ran the TDSSKiller, but nothing was found.  My AVG also finds no such malware.


Can anyone help?

Hello SpencerDR
This is most likely deep and protected. We should get a deeper look. Please follow this Preparation Guide, do steps 6,7 and 8 and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
