    So, recently my Google links started redirecting to advertisements or other websites I didn't click, and popups that I never used to see on websites started showing up as well. My McAfee just recently ran out but I've renewed my subscription and performed multiple scans with MB, and McAfee, as well as used Glary Registry repair (which helped resolve an issue that cause my programs to crash on start) but I still can't seem to get the links to work right.
    Here's my HighjackThis Log.

    What browser is getting redirected?

    Please download ComboFix from Here or Here to your Desktop.


    **Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved directly to your desktop**

    • Please, never rename Combofix unless instructed.
    • Close any open browsers.
    • Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.
    • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause "unpredictable results".
    • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.

    NOTE 1. If Combofix asks you to install Recovery Console, please allow it.
    NOTE 2. If Combofix asks you to update the program, always do so.


    • Close any open browsers.
    • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
    • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
    • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.
    • Double click on combofix.exe & follow the prompts.
    • When finished, it will produce a report for you.
    • Please post the "C:\ComboFix.txt" along with a new HijackThis log for further review.

    **Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

    Make sure, you re-enable your security programs, when you're done with Combofix.

    DO NOT make any other changes to your computer (like installing programs, using other cleaning tools, etc.), until it's officially declared clean!!!

    The problem is with firefox. tried reinstalling, as well as creating a new profile but it still caused problems for me.


    I ran combofix like you said to and it said something about being incompatible with my OS, but I use XP.
     
  4. broni

    broni Malware Annihilator Techie7 Moderator Head Security

    What is the EXACT message, Combofix gives you?

    Also, dis you check, if IE is redirection-free?
     
  5. camfrommars

    camfrommars Techie7 New Member

    IE seems to have the same problem.

    As for the message. I don't remember the exact message word for word, but it said that it's not compatible with my OS and it's only compatible with XP and 2000. Which I have XP.

    Delete your Combofix file.
    Download fresh copy from HERE
    I renamed the file for a reason.

    "C:\Documents and Settings\XXXX\Desktop\5cfgh6er7.exe could not be saved, because you cannot change the contents of that folder."

    I changed my user name to "XXXX".

    Won't let me save the file.

    Why? You can't do this.
     
  9. camfrommars

    camfrommars Techie7 New Member

    Nono, I mean I changed it for the forums sake so that people don't know my name Lol.

    Please download and run the below tool named Rkill (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com) which may help allow other programs to run.

    There are 4 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.

    Vista and Win7 users need to right click Rkill and choose Run as Administrator

    You only need to get one of these to run, not all of them. You may get warnings from your antivirus about this tool, ignore them or shutdown your antivirus.

    * Rkill.com
    * Rkill.scr
    * Rkill.pif
    * Rkill.exe

    * Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
    * If using Vista or Windows 7 right-click on it and choose Run As Administrator.
    * A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
    * If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
    * If it does not work, repeat the process and attempt to use one of the remaining links until the tool runs.
    * Do not reboot until instructed.
    * If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.

    Once you've gotten one of them to run then try to immediately run the following.

    Now download and Run exeHelper.

    * Please download exeHelper from Raktor to your desktop.
    * Double-click on exeHelper.com to run the fix.
    * A black window should pop up, press any key to close once the fix is completed.
    * A log file named log.txt will be created in the directory where you ran exeHelper.com
    * Attach the log.txt file to your next message.
    [/LIST]


    Note: If the window shows a message that says "Error deleting file", please re-run the program before posting a log - and post the two logs together (they will both be in the one file).


    Try to run Combofix now.

    The one you renamed? It still wouldn't save.
     
  15. broni

    broni Malware Annihilator Techie7 Moderator Head Security

    Try to save it to different location.
     
  16. camfrommars

    camfrommars Techie7 New Member

    Apparently now when I click the browse button (this is on websites as well as the Firefox options to change saving location) it doesn't do anything. So I can't save it a different location. I tried saving it on both IE and Google Chrome and IE redirects me to some google dell page thing and chrome doesnt seem to want to save it at all.
     
  17. camfrommars

    camfrommars Techie7 New Member

    ok chrome downloaded it

    Well chrome downloaded it but wont open it. I can't find the file in my downloads folder, and when I click open on chrome it says opening and then does nothing.

    broni Malware Annihilator Techie7 Moderator Head Security

    I'm confused. Are you trying to open Combo with Chrome?
