Ok, I can see the problem now. :D

Download and run Combofix
This tool is not a toy and not for everyday use.
ComboFix SHOULD NOT be used unless requested by a forum helper

Please download ComboFix from one of these locations:

Link 1
Link 2
Link 3

* IMPORTANT !!! Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop

  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.
  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.
**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.

Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:

Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.
When finished, it will produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply along with a fresh HijackThis log.

If you need help, see this link:

Right click on your favourite web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc) and select Run As Administrator to run it.

Go to Kaspersky website and perform an online antivirus scan. Please use Internet Explorer as it uses ActiveX.

  1. Read through the requirements and privacy statement and click on Accept button.
  2. It will start downloading and installing the scanner and virus definitions. You will be prompted to install an application from Kaspersky. Click Run.
  3. When the downloads have finished, click on Settings.
  4. Make sure these boxes are checked (ticked). If they are not, please tick them and click on the Save button:
      Spyware, Adware, Dialers, and other potentially dangerous programs
      Mail databases
  5. Click on My Computer under Scan.
  6. Once the scan is complete, it will display the results. Click on View Scan Report.
  7. You will see a list of infected items there. Click on Save Report As....
  8. Save this report to a convenient place. Change the Files of type to Text file (.txt) before clicking on the Save button.

Hi Dan,

I've uninstalled ComboFix per your directions. I've done multiple google searches in both IE and Firefox and don't see any evidence of hijacking / browser redirection. In addition, both browsers seem to be running much faster than they have in the recent past.

It seems like everything is good. Is this a clean bill of health for the computer?

If "yes" - I would love to know what steps I can take to prevent this from happening in the future. I'm open to recommendations regarding upgrading my security software and any other preventative actions which will help to keep the computer clean.

Kind regards,

I will give you some advice in my closing speech. :)

Please download JavaRa and unzip it to your desktop.

***Please close any instances of Internet Explorer before continuing!***

  • Double-click on JavaRa.exe to start the program.
  • From the drop-down menu, choose English and click on Select.
  • JavaRa will open; click on Remove Older Versions to remove the older versions of Java installed on your computer.
  • Click Yes when prompted. When JavaRa is done, a notice will appear that a logfile has been produced. Click OK.
  • A logfile will pop up. Please save it to a convenient location.

Then download and install Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 11.

post back the report.

I downloaded JavaRa as instructed, extracted the files to my desktop and ran the executable. I selected the "Remove Older Versions" option - it ran and I got a popup message saying that it was completed and that the log file would be opened. No log file opened and I searched my c: drive for the JavaRa.log file and I can't find it there.

I ran the JavaRa executable one more time - same results.

I have NOT downloaded / installed the new JRE. Will wait for your advice on how to proceed.

Please ignore my previous post. I was able to get the program to run properly be running the executable file "as administrator". I have also loaded the new version of the Java Runtime Environment.

Here are the results of the log:

JavaRa 1.13 Removal Log.

Report follows after line.

Well done :)
Congratulations you are clean! :)
Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

Create a new System Restore Point
This is a good time to clear your existing system restore points and establish a new clean restore point:
Turn off System Restore-Vista
  • Click the Vista/Start icon.
  • Right Click >> Computer
  • Click Properties.

Hi Dan,

Thanks so much for your help. After going through the complete clean up process it's clear that I wouldn't have had a chance to figure this out on my own.

I appreciate all of the time and effort that you put in to getting my system clean again. You're the best!

Kind regards,
