Getting redirected to msn.com from microsoft sites

Unread postby guhaa » December 28th, 2008, 6:36 am

Hi,
I'm facing some issues with some of the microsoft sites like update.microsoft.com. I'm always getting redirected to msn.com. I'm unable to use the microsoft update. I believe that there's a Malware infection in my machine. I'm using Spybot and Norton 360, but so far the tools have not been able to detect any Malware. As instructued I've Run a scan with HiJack This and attaching the log file below. Please help me in cleaning up my machine. I'm connecting to the intenet through a router.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply. I could resolve the problem myself. There was a Trojan DNS-Changer infection on my machine, which went undetected by either Spybot or Symnatec. Finally resolved the issue by using SuperAntiSpyware.

Thanks for your response nonetheless.

Due to lack of response this topic is now closed.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Infected? Virus, malware, adware, ransomware, oh my! forum, include a fresh FRST log, and wait for a new helper.
