google redirect - continuation for aaflac44

Specs: Windows 7
Google redirect virus--
I already had McAfee total protection, and recently tried malawarebytes, tdsskiller, fixtdss, spybot search and destroy, and ccleaner.

I've done everything after first running rkill, and also in safe mode.

I've gone into my host file and erased the extra line of code.

I've checked my proxy servers and they were all on automatically detect.

I've gone into run and checked out my device manager, but couldn't find anything under tdss to delete.

I was going to delete the vol***whatever file by gaining control and getting permission and all that but none of the scanners said it was infected and i read that windows should have it.

I haven't did the router reset or whatever, I'm not exactly sure how to and i'm not sure if it'll work anyway.

I haven't used combofix because i'm not a pro and wouldn't know what to delete.

I have windows 7, use IE 9, and I could use some help. If someone knows something I haven't tried or can think of something i may have done wrong. I'm sure it would be helpful to a lot of us.

I've heard that the only way would be to reinstal windows7. But even then i'm not sure cuz i heard about disabling system restore or something. And i don't wanna lose all my programs. But...if thats the only way so be it.


Thanks for the help aaflac44,

Ok so I downloaded the program and I'm pretty sure i did everything as far as the checks and all. But it still didn't detect any threats. My report of detected Malware is blank.

I just don't know if i have some variation of the virus or what. Like i said, i have yet to get any error messages, blue screens. Only the redirecting. I DLed immunnet from google and it blocks some of the redirects from loading but it is still a pain going back and forth until a page comes up. Plus, i'm worried that eventually i will have those other problems. I appreciate everything though.

Do you have any other ideas?

Let's see if this one nails 'whatever' is causing the redirections...

Please download ComboFix:

Save ComboFix.exe to your Desktop!!

Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with the running of CF.

Note: If you are having difficulty properly disabling your protective programs, or are unsure as to what programs need to be disabled, please refer to the information available through this link:

Now, right-click on ComboFix.exe and select: Run as Administrator
Follow the prompts.

Make sure you skip the Recovery Console part since you are running Windows 7.

Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, CF produces a report.

Since this report can also be quite large, please go to the Uploading website:

In: Select files to upload, click 'Browse', and 'Look in' the Desktop.
Select the RU report, and click on 'Open'
You will see the following:
Your file has been uploaded successfully: (Name and size of the file)

Please copy the 'Download link', and provide it in your reply.


1.Do not mouse-click the ComboFix window while it is running.
This action may cause it to stall.

2. ComboFix may reset a number of Internet Explorer's settings, including making IE the default browser.

3. CF disconnects your machine from the internet. However, the connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run. If CF runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.

Ok, I just got off work so I'm a litlle tired but I appreciate your help so I'm trying to do everything timely.

I dl'ed the combofix. I heard about it before but was persuaded not to use it, but i have faith in you so...
I disabled my scanning in McAfee, I turned off malaware and the curenet or whatever from google. I ran as admin and kept getting error message or something about nircmd and not finding it. I can't tell if its working or not. I'm sorry but i got off tomorrow so i'll look into more detail as to what it's supposed to look like while its working.

You'll have to tell me about this, should it pop up after every completed stage?
