Well, I've been infected with -something- and I'm not quite sure what! I've taken initiative to find a cure, but I haven't been so successful. I was lucky enough to find this site and find a post that related to my situation - Pop-ups every time I click somewhere and Google Chrome search keeps being redirected to Bing. At first, I did an Avira scan - no results. I changed the settings on the pop-up blocker - nothing changed. Then I ran Malware Bytes - still nothing.
This person's issues are the same as mine, only they explain it a bit better. I also have Windows 7.
I then proceeded to follow the majority of the steps that are given :
-downloaded TDSSKiller - scan - reboot - no results.
-downloaded aswMBR - downloaded AVAST - scan - saved log.
-ran ESET Online Scanner - scan - couldn't save the log/can't find it?
After this, I was still having issues. I continued to follow the instructions given on this forum (even though I'm still not sure if I'm doing any of this correctly, or supposed to be doing any of it at all!! ).
- ran Farbars Service Scanner - saved log.
- ran AdwCleaner - saved log.
- ran Junkware Removal Tool - saved log.
- TRIED Rkill, but I couldn't click on any of the links.
This is as far as I've gotten. I'm still having issues with redirecting pages, especially with Chrome. The pop-ups seemed to have "tamed" themselves for now....but that could also be because I'm avoiding surfing as much as possible. I'm not sure if I should carry on with the steps posted in the aforementioned post, so before I do any (more) damage, I figured I'd reach for help!
Attached are the saved logs of each scan. Hopefully they help...
I'm REALLY hoping someone can help me figure this out! I'm super happy to have found this site and hopefully I will have a solution from an experienced person very soon!
THANK YOU very much for your time and any information you can give!
