Google links redirected when using IE and Mozilla

Hi,

When I do a search using Google (even Yahoo) on IE or Mozilla, the links are redirected; they do not correspond to the search results.

I have executed HijackThis v2.0.2 and this is the log file:

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.

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

Image
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:

Hi, Loredana, things are looking a lot better how are they your end?

Have you set these domains?
O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\Parameters: Domain = infostrength.biz
O17 - HKLM\Software\..\Telephony: DomainName = infostrength.biz
O17 - HKLM\System\CS1\Services\Tcpip\Parameters: Domain = infostrength.biz



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 12.

Hi Dan,

I have tested searching using Google on IE and, although many of the answer links were correctly displaying and were taking me to the correct sites, some of them changed in the URL bar and displayed messages informing me that malware has been detected and offering to scan my computer; the only way to get rid of them was to close the browser.

Also, strange things happened as well: the computer locked itself last night and, while unlocking it, the GUI did not display correctly. I tried opening Safari and a message displayed something like this: "Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested services." I have rebooted and now things seem a little better.

And yes, the Infostrength domain is mine - my work domain, and I would not want to get rid of it :? .

The requested logs are following.

Thank you so much,
Loredana

And yes, the Infostrength domain is mine - my work domain, and I would not want to get rid of it

No! wouldn't be a wise move :)

ok, let's have another online scan just for peace of mind!

Note for Vista Users: Eset is compatible but Internet Explorer must be run as Administrator. To do this, right-click on the IE icon in the Start Menu or Quick Launch Bar on the Taskbar and select "Run as Administrator" from the context menu.

Please go to Eset website to perform an online scan. Please use Internet Explorer as it uses ActiveX.

  1. Check (tick) this box: YES, I accept the Terms of Use.
  2. Click on the Start button next to it.
  3. When prompted to run ActiveX. click Yes.
  4. You will be asked to install an ActiveX. Click Install.
  5. Once installed, the scanner will be initialized.
  6. After the scanner is initialized, click Start.
  7. Uncheck (untick) Remove found threats box.
  8. Check (tick) Scan unwanted applications.
  9. Click on Scan.
  10. It will start scanning. Please be patient.
  11. Once the scan is done, you will find a log in C:\Program Files\esetonlinescanner\log.txt. Please post this log in your next reply.

Hi Dan,

Before getting your last reply I had run Ad-Aware and it found three dubious objects. After deleting the cookies and the Internet temporary files, I ran ESET Online Scanner, as you have recommended.

The logs for the two actions are following.

Thank you,
Loredana




Ad-Aware scan

Hi Dan,

Everything seems normal again.

I had tested searching using Google and Yahoo on both IE and Firefox browsers and the result links were correctly displaying and by clicking them I was taken to the correct pages.

Thank you very much for all your help. It is deeply appreciated.

CLEAN UP
Let's clear out the programs we've been using to clean up your computer, they are not suitable for general malware removal and could cause damage if used inappropriately.

The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:

Click Start > Run and copy/paste the following bolded text into the Run box and click OK:

ComboFix /u



  • Double-click OTMoveIt3.exe. (Vista users, please right click on OTMoveit3.exe and select "Run as an Administrator")
  • Click the CleanUp! button.
  • Select Yes when the "Begin cleanup Process?" prompt appears.
  • If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes.
  • The tool will delete itself once it finishes, if not delete it by yourself.


post a fresh HJT and let me know when you have carried out above.
