Hello all!

A newbie to Geeks to Go here.

So today I was browsing some links in Google and when I click on some of them they redirect to a completely different website than what I want. Other than that I haven't noticed any other problems, other than a very slightly decreased performance speed in my browser. I scanned my computer with Microsoft Security Essentials, which is my Anti-virus program (I've found it to be much better and real time reliable than AVG). It detected several infected files, but even after fixing the issues it detected, I am still having the redirect problem. Also, I did a scan with Malware Bytes, however it didn't detect anything. I've also ran tdsskiller, and it didn't show anything either. Like I said, after doing all of this, cleaning my computer with CCleaner and all, I'm still having this problem. I've downloaded HijackThis and ran a scan. The results are as follows:

Please, any help in ridding my computer of this nasty bug would be greatly appreciated. I always use safe browsing methods and don't really know how this got onto my machine, but it seems like websites anymore contain so many malicious popups and things that it's an inevitable situation. :)

Thank you guys and looking forward to a quick response!

Hello there :) Welcome to the GeeksToGo forums.
My name is NeonFx. I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems. Logs can take some time to research, so please be patient with me.

Please note the following:

  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used on this machine.
  • Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine appears to be clean. Absence of symptoms does not necessarily mean that the system is completely clean.
  • It's often worth reading through these instructions and printing them for ease of reference. I may ask you to boot into Safe Mode where you will be unable to follow my instructions online.
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask!! It's better to be sure and safe than sorry.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.

Step 1

Download OTS to your Desktop

  • Double-click on OTS.exe to start the program.
  • Check the box that says Scan All Users
  • Make sure Include 64bit Scans is checked.
  • Under Basic Scans please change the radio button under Registry from Safe List to All.
  • Under Additional Scans check the following:
    • Reg - Desktop Components
    • Reg - Disabled MS Config Items
    • Reg - NetSvcs
    • Reg - Shell Spawning
    • Reg - Uninstall List
    • File - Lop Check
    • File - Purity Scan
    • Evnt - EvtViewer (last 10)
  • Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
  • Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
  • When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
  • Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is then click on it to uncheck it.

Please attach the log in your next post. To do so click on the blue "Add Reply" button and click on the "Browse.." button under "Manage Current Attachments"

To ensure that I get all the information this log will need to be attached. If it is too large to attach then upload it to Dropio and post the sharing link/url (The Drop's URL will be similar to : http:://drop.io/daerk)

Step 2

Please download MBRCheck.exe to your desktop.
  • Be sure to disable your security programs
  • Double click on the file to run it (Vista and Windows 7 users will have to confirm the UAC prompt)
  • A window similar to this should open on your desktop:

    Posted Image

  • If you are prompted with options, enter N at the prompt and press Enter
  • Press Enter again
  • A .txt file named MBRCheck_mm.dd.yy_hh.mm.ss should appear on your deskop. Please post the contents of that file.

A couple questions:

Do you have any other computers connected to the same network and are they experiencing the same symptoms?

What is the make and model of your router?

Do you notice the symptoms in both internet explorer and firefox?

Please update MalwareBytes and run a full scan. Attach the results here for me.

Is there any way you could get me the results of the MSE scan that found some stuff earlier?

I do have a desktop computer connected as well, however it is an older Dell Dimension 2400 that we rarely use anymore because it is just so outdated performance wise. An interesting note to make here is that the only time I am experiencing the redirect is just on a few links in Google. Everything else seems to link fine, although like I said I've noticed just a very slight decrease in browsing performance. These symptoms are occurring on both computers and browsers. That's why I am confused if there really is anything still lurking on my computer.

The model of the router is an actiontec gt724wgr.

I've attached the MSE report history. It included all of the things detected since this began happening. Note that I ran a scan yesterday (Sept. 12) and it found 2 new files, but since then I haven't ran a new scan and no alerts have come up.

I will run both a MSE scan and a MalwareBytes scan with the latest updates right now and when those are completed I'll post the results.

Thanks for all your help so far.

Alright that confirms my suspicion. The infection probably lies on the router itself.

Along with the results of those two scans, please try resetting the router to its factory defaults:

"To reset a 'GT' Series Router, Gateway or Wireless Access Point, begin with the unit powered up and with a solid Green Power light. Then using a small tool depress and hold the Reset button on the back of the device just until you see the color of the Power light change from Green to Amber. Be sure to release the Reset button before the Power light turns Red.
The length of time that the Reset button must be held to accomplish the reset varies from model to model, but as long as the Reset button is released while the power light is Amber the Reset will be successful."


Please note that this will reset any configurations on the device, such as wireless settings and passwords as well as the administrator password and any port forwarding rules you may have set. These will need to be reset manually. Let me know if you need any help with that. You can also use the support page I linked you to as it has manuals and other resources for your device.

Okay, I ran both scans and no threats were detected. The results of the MalwareBytes scan are:

I reset the router as well. From what I can tell all seems to be working correctly. Therefore I'm assuming the threats that were detected via MSE are all gone from my computer as well? It always worries me because sometimes I'll think they are gone but the thought that there may still be something I don't know about always lingers. Darn these little boogers that send this crap out! haha

You shouldn't worry too much about what MSE found. They're all basically half infections, droppers that never got the chance to truly infect your system. There are very few viruses that work on 64bit machines which is why I thought your router was most likely the device that got infected instead of this system.



  • Under the Paste Fix Here box on the right, paste in the contents of following code box

[Kill All Processes]
[Unregister Dlls]
[Empty Temp Folders]

  • Then click the Run Fix button at the top
  • Let the program run unhindered, reboot the PC when it is done
  • This will create a log in C:\_OTS\MovedFiles\<date>_<time>.log where date and time are those of when the fix was run. Open it from there if it does not appear automatically on reboot. Please copy and paste or attach the contents of that file here.

Note: You may receive some errors while running the fix. Just press Ok and the fix should continue normally.
If it seems to get stuck, give it some time. It's probably still working.


Using Internet Explorer or Firefox, visit Kaspersky Online Scanner

1. Click Accept, when prompted to download and install the program files and database of malware definitions.

2. To optimize scanning time and produce a more sensible report for review:
  • Close any open programs
  • Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan. Click HERE to see how to disable the most common antivirus programs.
3. Click Run at the Security prompt.

The program will then begin downloading and installing and will also update the database.

Please be patient as this can take quite a long time to download.
  • Once the update is complete, click on Settings.
  • Make sure these boxes are checked (ticked). If they are not, please tick them and click on the Save button:
    • Spyware, adware, dialers, and other riskware
    • Archives
    • E-mail databases
  • Click on My Computer under the green Scan bar to the left to start the scan.
  • Once the scan is complete, it will display if your system has been infected. It does not provide an option to clean/disinfect. We only require a report from it.
  • Do NOT be alarmed by what you see in the report. Many of the finds have likely been quarantined.
  • Click View report... at the bottom.
  • Click the Save report... button.

    Posted Image
  • Change the Files of type dropdown box to Text file (.txt) and name the file KasReport.txt to save the file to your desktop so that you may post it in your next reply

I'm glad to hear it. Make sure you set an administrator password on your router as keeping at its default could have been the reason it got infected this time.

Ready for my cleanup instructions?

Excellent. Let's cleanup.


To clean up OldTimer's tools, along with a few others, do the following:

  • Run OTS.exe by double clicking on it
  • Click on the "CleanUp" button on the top.
  • You will be asked if you wish to reboot your system, select "Yes"


Remove any other tools or files we used by right-clicking on them or any folders they created, hold down the Shift key, and select "Delete" by clicking on it. This will delete the files without sending them to the RecycleBin.

You can also uninstall the other programs (HijackThis or MalwareBytes if we used them) by going to Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove programs (The Control Panel is different in different versions of Windows. It will be Programs and Features in Vista and Programs > Uninstall a Program in 7)

You might want to keep MalwareBytes AntiMalware though and that's fine :) Make sure you update it before you run the scans in the future.

All Clean

Congratulations!, Posted Image, your system is now clean. Now that your system is safe we would like you to keep it that way. Take the time to follow these instructions and it will greatly reduce the risk of further infections and greatly diminish the chances of you having to visit here again.

Microsoft Windows Update
Microsoft releases patches for Windows and Office products regularly to patch up Windows and Office products loopholes and fix any bugs found. Install the updates immediately if they are found.
To update Windows
Go to (Start) > (All) Programs > Windows Update
To update Office
Open up any Office program.
Go to Help > Check for Updates

Install WinPatrol
Download it HERE
You can find information about how WinPatrol works HERE and HERE

Note: This program will work alongside all other security programs without conflicts. It might ask you to allow certain actions that security programs perform often, but if you tell Scotty to remember the action by checking the option, the alerts will lessen.

Other Software Updates
It is very important to update the other software on your computer to patch up any security issues you may have. Go HERE to scan your computer for any out of date software. In particular make sure you download the updates for Java and Adobe as these are subject to many security vulnerabilities.

Setting up Automatic Updates
So that it is not necessary to have to remember to update your computer regularly (something very important to securing your system), automatic updates should be configured on your computer. Microsoft has guides for XP and Vista on how to do this. See HERE for Windows 7.

Read further information HERE, HERE, and HERE on how to prevent Malware infections and keep yourself clean.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.
