While google searching for a goose recipe, suddenly when I started clicking on my search results, I would be redirected to random websites.
A random file appeared on my desktop which I immediately deleted as I didn't put it there (I know stupid - I even emptied my recycle bin so I do not have record of it other than recalling the name of the file was something like wdmaud)
Ran Spybot (already installed in computer) which did not detect anything.
My Symantec Antivirus (already installed in computer) also didn't detect anything; however yesterday it did detect a trojan which I deleted.
Downloaded Malwarebytes which did detect infections but once they were quarantined it no longer detected anything yet I still had the issue.
Uninstalled Internet Explorer and downloaded Google Browser instead but this only temporarily worked and then once again I was being redirected.
Downloaded Counter Spy on an external harddrive from another computer and installed in my computer. Each time I run the scan it detects a trojan but as soon as it detects it causes my computer to bluescreen.
Downloaded HijackThis and now have a logfile that I hope someone can view and help me with this issue. Thank you.

Hello kaizen and welcome to Geeks to Go! Please follow these guidelines while we work on your PC:
  • Malware removal is a sometimes lengthy and tedious process. Please stick with the thread until I’ve given you the “All clear.” Absence of symptoms does not mean your machine is clean!
  • Please do not run any scans or install/uninstall any applications without being directed to do so.
  • Any light blue colored text in my posts indicates a clickable link.
  • If you have any questions at all, please stop and ask before proceeding.
Posted Image Please download DDS by sUBs from one of the following links and save it to your desktop.

DDS.scr
DDS.com
DDS.pif
  • Disable any script blocking protection (How to Disable your Security Programs)
  • Double click DDS icon to run the tool (may take up to 3 minutes to run)
  • When done, DDS.txt will open.
  • After a few moments, attach.txt will open in a second window.
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
---------------------------------------------------
  • Post the contents of the DDS.txt report in your next reply
  • Attach the Attach.txt report to your post by scroling down to the Attachments area and then clicking Browse. Browse to where you saved the file, and click Open and then click UPLOAD.
Posted Image Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here to your desktop.
  • Double click the exe file. If asked to allow gmer.sys driver to load, please consent .
  • If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO.

  • In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Uncheck the following ...
    • IAT/EAT
    • Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
    • Show All (don't miss this one)
  • Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
  • Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.txt" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.
  • Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop, and post it in reply.
**Caution**
Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries


If you have trouble running GEMR:
  • Make sure that your security software is disabled
  • Uncheck the box next to "Files" this time also
  • If you still can't run it, try in the Safe Mode
Please include the following in your next post:
  • DDS.txt and Attach.txt logs
  • GMER log
