I am working on a computer, Dell E4300, Windows XP SP3, IE 8 which has some sort of redirect on it. It always shows two iexplore.exe applications running in task manager, and if I stop them, they'll re-appear. I have run Malwarebytes, SpyBot S&D, AdAware, SuperAntiSpyWare and nothing is finding it. I have checked my IE Proxy settings, Host file, etc. I have looked in the registry under Run, RunOnce, etc. and nothing suspicious. Have followed the guideline here on how to remove Google redirects, and when I ran OTM it asked me to reboot, and I did. When I try to run TDSSKiller, nothing happens.

When I Google something and get results, and then click on one of those links, it takes me to some advertisement site like Shopica.com or others.

Gooredfix showed nothing, and I didn't see anything suspicious in the HijackThis log (but I am not an expert).

Something else, if I would do a Start, Run, C:\ and click OK, the window would pop right up. When I would double click on My Computer, that would take a long time to open. After the OTM reboot, My Computer opens normally.

Some additional background, this system was infected with "Windows XP Repair", and all files and folders as well as parts of the registry were hidden. I booted into safe mode and did a System Restore back to June 7, which then allowed me to manually delete a few things and then my scans found reminants of it in the other System Restore areas and appeared to have completely cleaned that infection, but this redirect is still here. Not sure how long the user has been plagued with the redirect.

Please help. Looks like this site has been very helpful assisting others. I can provide any log files requested.

I really need someone's help on this. I can't get TDSSKILLER.EXE to run and think it might help. I guess the virus is stopping it from running. Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.
