Another Redirect of Browsers

Good day and thank you for your assistance,

I'm not sure which browser was opened first, IE or Firefox, but neither operates correctly and I was only able to reach this site through Chrome - which I'm afraid to close now. Attempted to clean myself with AVG and an old Trend Micro subscription; neither worked. A DDS log is below:

EDIT NOTE: I read a similar post and used the Kaspersky (sic) TDSSKiller for rootkit removal...it worked fast and complete. I've also updated all of my security patches and installed a high grade AV. While I know that my system is still vulnerable since it has been attacked once; it does allow me to access the internet again and I believe I've learned my lesson.

Hello and Welcome to the forums!

My name is Carolyn and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems.

Please do not run any other tool until instructed to do so!
Please reply to this thread, do not start another!
Please tell me about any problems that have occurred during the fix.
Please tell me of any other symptoms you may be having as these can help also.
Please try as much as possible not to run anything while executing a fix.

If you follow these instructions, everything should go smoothly.

Please post the TDSSKiller log (a log file named TDSSKiller_version_dd.mm.yyyy_hh.mm.ss_log.txt that was saved to the root directory. (usually Local Disk C:).)

Also, please scan again with DDS. Post both DDS.txt and Attach.txt for my review.

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.
