google redirect virus

Unread postby blm1982 » November 19th, 2010, 10:53 pm

I think I have the google redirect virus. I have downloaded about 5 or 6 different spyware/malware removers and nothing is working. When I search in google on my firefox it redirects to many different sites. When I use my internet explorer everything is fine. Sometimes it will remove but when I restart my computer its back. I tried starting in safe mode and many other things that were suggested online. Several people use this computer in my home so I have no idea where it came from. Thanks for your help!

Hi blm1982,
Please don't install, remove or scan with anything until we are through, unless I ask.

Because you have not had proper updates to your Windows system, we may not be able to "fix" this machine.
If there are any really important items to back up on your computer, you better do it. I would suggest copy to CDs, DVDs, flash drive, or external hard drive.

The infections tend to be more numerous and more serious in an XP Machine that only has Service Pack 2. (Microsoft won't even support them anymore)
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove Registry items with HighjackThis. Start HijackThis.
Click Do System Scan Only. When the Scan is complete, Check the following entries:
(Some of these lines may be missing)

R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = *.local
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ClamWin] "C:\Program Files\ClamWin\bin\ClamTray.exe" --logon

Make sure Every other window except HJT is closed (No other tabs showing in the bottom tray), and Click Fix Checked
Click the "X" in the upper right corner of the HiJackThis window to close it.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove Programs Using Control Panel
From Start, Settings, Control Panel or Start, Control Panel, click Add/Remove Programs.
Highlight each Entry, as follows, one by one, if it exists, and choose Remove :

ClamWin Free Antivirus 0.87.1
Java(TM) 6 Update 12

Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller.
-----------------------------------------------
Run Defence Inspector
Download the tool from this link: http://downloads.securitycadets.com/Def ... pector.exe
Once downloaded, double-click DefenceInspector to run it.
When presented with the option to begin the scan, please press any key to continue.
When DefenceInspector has finished scanning (this should not take longer than a minute or so), a log will appear.
Please post the entire contents of this log in your next reply. You can post the log before you do Combofix, next.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Download and Run ComboFix
IMPORTANT NOTE: ComboFix is a VERY POWERFUL tool. DO NOT use it without guidance.
ComboFix uses very forceful tactics to remove malware from your system. Your antivirus software may warn you about the file.
You will need to disable all your antivirus software after downloading but BEFORE running ComboFix.
.
  • Download ComboFix from here
  • Rename it while saving the download to zzz.exe and save it to your Desktop. Do not try to rename it after it has been saved to your desktop, or the infection may prevent you from using it.
    **Note: It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop and run from the desktop, not from any other folder on your computer**
  • DISABLE (SYMANTEC) NORTON ANTIVIRUS
    Please navigate to the system tray on the bottom right hand corner and look for a Imagesign.
    • right-click it -> chose "Disable Auto-Protect."
    • select a duration of 5 hours (this assures no interference with the cleanup of your pc)
    • click "Ok."
    • a popup will warn that protection will now be disabled.
    Norton Antivirus Guard is now disabled.
  • Now start ComboFix (zzz.exe)
  • The tool will check whether the Recovery Console is present on your system. If it is not, ComboFix will prompt you whether you would like to install it. (You would).
  • If it is not, make sure you are connected to the internet as ComboFix needs to download a file. When you are connected to the internet, click Yes and follow the prompts.
    When asked whether to continue scanning or to exit, click Yes to continue scanning (no need to disconnect from the internet as ComboFix breaks your internet connection for you).
  • It will run through about 50 procedures, then take a while to assemble its output log.
  • Do not touch the computer AT ALL while ComboFix is running.
  • When finished, the report will open. Post the log in your next reply, and then Reenable your AVG protection software
A copy of the log will be located here if you need it-> C:\ComboFix.txt
If you cannot connect to the internet after running ComboFix, unplug the cable you use to connect to the internet and plug it back in.

The Recovery Console produces a brief (2 second) black screen at bootup which allows an additional technical resource for repair in case of a major failure. In regular operation, you can ignore it.

So we are looking for the log from defence Inspector, and the Combofix log. Use separate replies if you wish.
Let me know how it goes.

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.
