Random websites opening and pages being redirected randomly

Unread postby jamie60509 » October 21st, 2010, 1:20 am

I'm not sure exactly when or how this happened but Firefox has started opening up new tabs with random websites.

I ran Malwarebytes' Anti Malware and it found and removed the following:

Files Infected:
C:\Users\Jam\AppData\Local\Temp\676.tmp (Rootkit.TDSS) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
C:\Users\Jam\AppData\Local\Temp\A144.tmp (Rootkit.TDSS) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
C:\Users\Jam\AppData\Local\Temp\A146.tmp.exe (Rootkit.TDSS) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.
C:\Users\Jam\AppData\Local\Temp\A147.tmp (Rootkit.TDSS) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully.

I restarted my PC and am still getting the random websites but further scans find nothing.

Can someone help please?

I see from your HJT log that you're using a 64 bit operating system.

Unfortunately, the tools we use to analyze and remove infections do not work properly on a 64 bit operating system, and their results cannot be relied upon. Because of this, it is almost impossible for us to correctly diagnose problems, and the fixes we might offer could potentially do as much damage to your computer as any infection you might have.

Due to the above stated reasons, we do not at this time offer support for 64 bit operating systems. We are sorry that we are currently unable to assist you.
