Unread postby briantoney432 » December 12th, 2010, 3:11 am

Re: search engine redirect and pop-ups

Hi briantoney432,
Sorry for the delay.
If you still need help and are not receiving it elsewhere, please proceed as follows:
-----------------------------------------------
Please Note Our Policy on the Use of P2P (Person to Person / Peer to Peer) file sharing programs
It is posted here: http://malwareremoval.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=491394#p491394
As a condition of receiving our help, I have included the P2P programs Frostwire and Bearshare (Mediabar) in the removal instructions below, so we are not wasting our time.
If you have used these, you can be fairly confident this is a principal reason your computer is infected

It's really important, if you value your PC at all, to stay away from P2P file sharing programs, like utorrent, Bearshare, Bittorrent, Azureus, Frostwire, Limewire, Vuze, Shareaza, Bitlord.
(Limewire has just been shut down by the courts).
Criminals have "planted" thousands upon thousands of infections in the "free" shared files. Some of the recent infections can turn your machine into a doorstop.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Disable Windows Defender
Open Windows Defender by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Defender.
If you don't see it in the Programs List, you can access it using the Control Panel.
Click Tools, and then click Options.
Under Administrator options, clear the Use Windows Defender check box, and then click Save.
Administrator permission is required. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Remove Registry items with HighjackThis. Start HijackThis. (Right-click and "Run as administrator" in Vista/Win7)
Click Do System Scan Only. When the Scan is complete, Check the following entries:
(Some of these lines may be missing)
R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - - (no file)

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, Control Panel, click on Uninstall a program under the Programs heading.
Right click each Entry, as follows, one by one, if it exists, choose Uninstall/Change, and give permission to Continue:

Adobe Reader 8.2.0
Ask Toolbar
FrostWire 4.21.1
McAfee SecurityCenter
MediaBar

Take extra care in answering questions posed by any Uninstaller.
-----------------------------------------------------------
REBOOT (RESTART) Your Machine
---------------------------------------------
Run CKScanner
Download CKScanner from HERE
Important - Save it to your desktop.
Right-Click CKScanner.exe, choose Run as administrator and click Search For Files.
After a couple minutes or less, when the cursor hourglass disappears, click Save List To File.
A message box will verify the file saved.
Double-click the CKFiles.txt icon on your desktop, give permission if asked, and copy/paste the contents in your next reply.
---------------------------------------------
Run a Scan with OTL
  1. Please download OTL.exe by OldTimer and save it to your desktop.
  2. Right click on OTL.exe and select Run As Administrator to run it. If Windows UAC prompts you, please allow it.
  3. Click on the Run Scan button at the top left hand corner.
  4. OTL will start running. When done, 2 Notepad files will open; OTL.txt and Extras.txt.
    They will be saved on your desktop.
    Please post the contents of these files.
    You may use separate replies if you wish.

So we are looking for contents of the report from CKScanner, and the two logs from OTL

Since the Poster has chosen a complete System recovery to solve the infection problem, this thread will be closed.
