Hi Marcelo!

Please take a look at this thread here: http://www.geekstogo...cleaning-guide/ and then create a new thread with the OTL logs in the Virus, Spyware, Malware Removal.

One of our Malware helpers will take a look at your OTL logs, and advise you on what the next step to take should be.

Kindest Regards,
SweetTech

I fought with this issue for almost a week and thought I was going to lose my mind! I even took my laptop to my MIS department at work. They ran Malwarebyte's Antimalware and found some infected files, deleted them, and we thought I was good to go. However, when I got home, the redirect came back. I stumbled across you guys' website while I was desparately searching for some sort of fix before I had a nervous breakdown. I followed the simple instructions and I have been redirect-free since late Friday night. You guys rock!! Thank you!!!

Okay, I've done all the steps and nothing was found. Now, instead of redirecting, google just keeps reloading the search page after I've clicked a link. I usually have to click the link three or four times before it will load the page. If I right click and open in another tab, it just loads the same google search page again. Frustrating!!

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post an OTListIt log in THAT forum.

This fix isn't working for me. I have to download the programs on my laptop to my flash drive and then install them on my desktop. I have done everything and it's still not detecting. When I try to rerun tdsskiller I receive an error stating I do not have permission to access the program. HELP!!! I'm about to crash my system instead

Hi Rachel and :welcome:

Sorry for your problems. If you had the Goored infection it should have shown up in the GooredFix log and I didn't see it. The next step was to download and run "TDSSKiller" to look for rootkits.
If you don't feel comfortable doing this please follow Rorschach 112's direction under the TDSS step. It was:

"The infection should hopefully be removed after these steps. If this is not the case, please go to the Virus Removal forum here and follow the steps in this thread here" (Click on the words in red)

One of the staff members in the Virus Removal forum will be happy to help you. In your post in the Virus Removal forum, please include a link back to your post here so the staff member can see what you have already done. (S)He will also combine the two threads so there won't be a duplication of efforts.

You didn't mention it in your post, but if you didn't download and install ERUNT, please do so before you post in the Virus Removal forum and tell them that it has been installed.

Good luck.

So I have tried all these instructions, but after I download TDSSKiller, it will not open. I have Windows Vista, and it asks me am I sure I want to open, I say yes, and nothing happens. What should I do at this point?

I tried this on two computers and it fixed neither of them one of them does not work at all now, not sure just what happened but I am thinking I will need a new unit now. Not saying its anyone's fault but it does not always work. there is one step when using OTM that I am not totally sure what it was wanting. (copy everything in the results window to the clipboard and past it in your next reply) well this is my next reply so here it is.
