Hi Everybody,
I recently had been getting some very wonky internet searches/redirects using Google. Before I ran MBAM and McAfee, had my System Restore option turned off. Each scan found some different threats and deleted them accordingly, however, after each reboot the System Restore was turned back on.
Following the steps outlined in the "How to fix Google Redirects", TDSSKiller found RootKit.Win32.TDSS.tdl4. I allowed the program to "cure" and Reboot.
When I ran TDSSKiller again, it found the same RootKit again, but this time the System Restore had stayed turned off. I cured, rebooted and scanned again and nothing was found.
I would like to celebrate, but the pessimist want to be sure its gone.
What are my next steps to validate its total removal?
