Hi! I have some nasty malware on my computer and I have tried almost everything to get rid of it;
Shaw Security, Ad Aware, Spybot, MS malicous removal tool, combo fix,SDFIX, Spy sweeper, Malwarebyte and more.

I can no longer get onto my home page (google.com) from IE or Firefox. I am now limited to Yahoo searches and am redirected to scratch browsers like info.com etc..

I am very angry! I have spent hours on this and - nowhere! Not sure what was downloaded but it is NASTY!

I dont usually ask for help - but if anyone has a solution to this problem I would really appreciate it!

Here is my log from Hijackthis:

Just to let everyone know after a whole day of misery, by chance I saw another post with a user experiencing similar symptoms. The big clue was my son who is on the same network but with a Mac was experiencing the same problems (viagra banners on very legit cites, browser hijacked and the god forsaken info.com takeover!). I unplugged my machine, ran malwarebyte and removed 6 dns trojans, reset the router with a paperclip and plugged back in - problem gone on the whole network!

I sure would like to get my hands on the idiot who put me through this misery!!! Thanks
