I rebooted the router several times. It doesn't appear to work quite the way you explained but I think we got it. Let's hope things work now. I'll monitor the redirects and see if any more pop-up now that the router has been reset.

Here are the files you requested! More fun reading!

Ding dong the witch appears to be dead. I tested the machine yesterday before and after running MBAM. I also tested it this afternoon and at this time am happy to report that I am not getting any redirects.

So... here is the newest run of MBAM. I could have sworn I'd attached the correct file last time but then again, the memory does get hazy as we get older.

Let me know if this is all we need!! Sounds like we're getting close!

I am a martyr to this ;)

Looking at that I am a happy bunny ;)

I will remove my tools now and give some recommendations, but I would like you to run for 24 hours or so and come back if you have any problems

Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean :D

A good workman always cleans up after himself so..The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:

  • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the following


  • Then click the Run Fix button at the top
  • Let the program run unhindered, reboot the PC when it is done
Click Start > Run and copy/paste the following bolded text into the Run box and click OK:

ComboFix /Uninstall

Run OTL and hit the cleanup button. It will remove all the programmes we have used plus itself. MBAM can be uninstalled via control panel add/remove along with ERUNT. But they may be useful tools to keep

We will now confirm that your hidden files are set to that, as some of the tools I use will change that
  • Click Start.
  • Open My Computer.
  • Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
  • Select the View Tab.
  • Under the Hidden files and folders heading select Do not show hidden files and folders.
  • Click Yes to confirm.
  • Click OK.
