ok so when i search on my browser, firefox, some sites get redirected when i use google. i haven't tried any other search engines but for sure, some but not all websites get redirected to random advertisement sites, such as coupon-mountain.com. i see a lot of the times that information gets transferred to web-analytics.google.com.

also, even when left alone, my computer will play seemingly random advertisements and even music. these sounds will be heard but never seen on the screen. i did the alt+ctrl+del and found that when i exit iexplore.exe, the random ads or music will go away.

so far, what i have is iexplore.exe randomly playing things, and an occaisional but increasingly common redirection of links when searching in google.

i assume this is some type of virus or malware. i brought my computer to the geeksquad at bestbuy; no help at all. their services are ran by 14yr olds.

i downloaded hijack this and combofix... here is the hijackthis log

Hello... Welcome to the forum.
My name is Wingman, and I'll be helping you with any malware problems.
HijackThis logs can take a while to research, so please be patient.

I am currently under the guidance of the MRU teachers, everything I post to you, has been reviewed by them.
This additional review process can add some extra time to my responses...but not too much

Before we begin...please note the following important guidelines.
  1. The instructions being given are for YOUR computer and system only!
    Using these instructions on a different computer can cause damage to that computer and possibly render it inoperable!
  2. DO NOT run any other fix or removal tools unless instructed to do so!
  3. DO NOT install any other software (or hardware) during the cleaning process. This adds more items to be researched.
  4. Please, if you have questions about something...ASK, don't guess or assume.
  5. Only- post your problem at (1) one help site. Applying fixes from multiple help sites can cause problems.
  6. Print each set of instructions...if possible...your Internet connection will not be available during some fix processes.
  7. Only- reply to this thread, do not start another ... Please, continue responding, until I give you the "All Clean"

If you follow these guidelines, things should proceed smoothly. :)
I am currently reviewing your log and will return, as soon as possible, with additional instructions.
In the meantime... please perform the following steps.

Please read instructions carefully before executing and perform the steps, in the order given.
lf you have any questions about or problems, executing these instructions, <STOP> do not proceed, post back with the question or problem.

Step 1.
HJT - Uninstall Manager Log
    Please run HijackThis
      If you are on the "scan & fix stuff" page... Press the "Main Menu"...button.
  1. From the Main Menu...Press the "Open the Misc Tools"...button.
  2. Press the "Open Uninstall Manager... button.
  3. Press only the Save List...button.
  4. Press the "Save" button. The file "uninstall_list.txt" will be saved in your HJT folder.
  5. Copy and paste the contents of "uninstall_list.txt' in your next reply.

Step 2.
Please include in your next reply:
  1. HJT uninstall_list.txt file contents

3 Day Bump
It has been 3 or more days since my last post to you.
  • Do you still need help with this problem?
  • Do you need more time?
  • Are you having problems understanding or following my instructions?
Just let me know what's going on otherwise...
If, after 48 hrs., you have not replied to this thread... it will be closed!

Due to a 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.
