Trojans & Search Redirect

Unread postby Kat91119 » January 5th, 2010, 1:21 pm

Hoping someone here can help. I've been waiting 4+ days over at bleepingcomputer and nobody has helped...very odd, normally I get help within 24hrs...

Anyhow, I too have gotten that search redirect hijack issue along with viruses. It seems with every scan & reboot I do, the virus multiplies.

I've run just about everything (Dr. Web CureIt, Malwarebytes, ESET Online Scan, etc), some find things, others don't. Some find ones others didn't find. They say they are removed, then do a reboot and run them and they find the same ones + new ones. I didn't save each and every log, but they are posted @ my bleeping computer thread if a link is needed.

Last night I installed the 30 day demo of Dr. Web's AntiVirus. It found 400+ infected files - WOW! (MANY doubles or triples) So, I told it to cure what it could and move the rest. It asked me to reboot, so I did. Sadly, it didn't save a log (that I know of or how to access) so I'm left with just telling you that it said they were "Trojan.Siggen.43038"

I did stop AVG from running so I didn't have two virus scanners running at the same time. Dr. Web seems to keep the bad processes from running - if they are still there....so hopefully that won't mess with the HijackThis log below, please let me know if I should shut it off or something.

Here is that log:

I have MANY files on my computer - I run websites, etc. I cannot lose this information, and have no means of backing them up currently. Yikes! Normally I don't get any viruses, and when I do I'm able to remove them easily, but this seems to be some new one that nobody has had luck removing (that I've found so far haha)

Anyhow, because I have so many files, scans take 3-6hrs to run!

Thanks for checking out my topic, and hopefully giving me a hand with this :)

One way to assure you DO NOT receive a reply to a topic at a forum is to keep bumping it, which is exactly what you've done at Bleeping Computer. However, it does appear that you are now receiving help.

While we appreciate that you very likely posted at multiple forums in order to ensure a response, that only serves to tie up the time of multiple helpers who could be using that time to help someone else who also has problems. Although there are many forums that handle HijackThis logs, there are not so many helpers; most of us help out at several forums. In addition, the results may not work out so well when you're following different instructions from different helpers. They may suggest different approaches for the same problem, all of which may be good; however, system conflicts may arise if different fixes for the same problem are applied simultaneously.

In the future, for your sake as well as ours, please refrain from requesting help from multiple forums. Choose one, and stick with that one until they've resolved your problem.

This topic is now closed.
