I've managed to pick up a piece of very persistent Malware that is occasionally redirects Firefox to undesirable websites. I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Here's what I've done so far:
Scanned with my regular anti-virus software, which is AVG. AVG found nothing significant.
So I Installed the following programs and used each to scan and clean my computer:
One or two found a couple of issues that seemed like the might be relevant and cleaned them up, but did not solve the problem. Otherwise these programs just found the usual list of tracking cookies and similarly minor issues.
I also uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox but since Firefox came back with all my favorites, plug-ins and so on already in place uninstalling Firefox clearly doesn't really fully uninstall Firefox.
I went through all my browsers (IE, Safari, Chrome and Firefox) and made sure there were not any unknown plug-ins or extensions and I reset the search settings.
I looked through the list of installed programs on my computer very carefully and did not see anything that shouldn't be there.
Any suggestions on what to do next?
