Dear Geeks Pros,

I have noticed my searches on FF and IE gets redirected randomly to other sites That includes eBay !!!

I would rather to kill the beast as oppose to rebuild the entire laptop again (windows 7 - 64 bit) So was wondering if you could help me, please.

Your help is much appreciated in advance.

Could you let me know if the redirects stop after this run

Warning This fix is only relevant for this system and no other, using on another computer may cause problems

Be advised that when the fix commences it will shut down all running processes and you may lose the desktop and icons, they will return on reboot

Run OTL
  • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the following
    Posted Image
:OTL
O4 - HKLM..\Run: [AR Rexx Script] c:\Program Files\Novadigm\radrexxw WIN7_AR.REX File not found
O4 - HKLM..\Run: [sso] c:\program files\novadigm\radrexxw sso.rex File not found
[2013/01/10 19:41:24 | 000,000,318 | ---- | C] () -- C:\Windows\tasks\Nvlec.job
[2013/01/10 19:41:24 | 000,135,168 | RHS- | M] () -- C:\Windows\SysWow64\vfwwdm325.dll

:Commands
[resethosts]
[emptytemp]
[CREATERESTOREPOINT]
[Reboot]
  • Then click the Run Fix button at the top
  • Let the program run unhindered, reboot the PC when it is done
  • Open OTL again and click the Quick Scan button. Post the log it produces in your next reply.

Hi Essex boy ,

many thanks for your reply.

The first two entry on your list were known to me so I ran the command for the other two unknown processes and it seems it did the trick. (I am still testing it though)

I have received your assistance on another occasion a few months back. Very pleased with the services.

I am going to donate to your organisation right away.

Looks good young sir :)

Subject to no further problems :)

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 :thumbsup:

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

Run OTL and hit the cleanup button. It will remove all the programmes we have used plus itself.

Posted Image Your Java is out of date.
Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.
Please follow these steps to remove older version of Java components and upgrade the application.

Upgrading Java:
  • Go to this site and click Do I have Java
  • It will check your current version and then offer to update to the latest version


Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programmes:

Posted Image Malwarebytes.

Update and run weekly to keep your system clean

Download and install FileHippo update checker and run it monthly it will show you which programmes on your system need updating and give a download link

If you use on-line banking then as an added layer of protection install Trusteer Rapport

It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated. To keep your operating system up to date visit
To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read our little guide How did I get infected in the first place ?Keep safe :wave:
