Hello Experts,
I have been having problems with this Google Redirecting malware.
So far I have installed the Malwarebytes; much has been found and deleted. I also have installed the HiJackThis, and have generated the logfile which I can post if needed.
Thank you in advance!
Babak

Does it happen in all the web browsers?

Follow these steps in order numbered:

1) Download GMER: http://gmer.net/download.php
[This version will download a randomly named file (Recommended).]

2) Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.

3) Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.

4) Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.

5) GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic quick scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)

6) If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.

7) Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.

8) When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log and upload it rapidshare.com. Post the download link to the uploaded file in your post.

9) Exit GMER and re-enable all active protection when done.

Note: I can help you remove malware manually. Please avoid installing/uninstalling or updating any programs and attempting any unsupervised fixes or scans. This can make helping you impossible. First Track this topic. Then follow:

1) Download and Run DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log: DDS Tool Download Link. When done, DDS will open two (2) logs

   1. DDS.txt
   2. Attach.txt

Upload the logs to rapidshare.com and paste download link in your next reply.
Note: Disable any script-blocking programs and then double-click on the DDS.scr icon to start the program. If you did not disable a script-blocker that may be part of your antimalware program, you may receive a warning from your antimalware product asking if you would like DDS.scr to run. Please allow it to do so.

If I'm helping you and I don't reply within 24 hours send me a PM.

Note: I can help you remove malware manually. Please avoid installing/uninstalling or updating any programs and attempting any unsupervised fixes or scans. This can make helping you impossible. First Track this topic. Then follow:

1) Can you please post your AVZ log:
Note: Run AVZ in windows normal mode. If avz.exe doesn't start, then try to rename the file avz.exe to something else and try to run it again. Make sure you have your web browser open in background before following the steps below.

i) To create the log file, download AVZ by clicking HERE. Please save this file to your desktop or "My Documents" folder.

ii) Next, unpack the file to a new folder using the Compressed (zipped) folders wizard built into Windows XP/Vista, or a zip utility of your choice.

iii) Once you have unpacked the contents of the zip archive, please launch the file AVZ.exe by double clicking on it or right clicking and selecting Open.
Note: If you are running Windows vista launch AVZ.exe by right clicking and selecting Run as Administrator.

You should now see the main window of the AVZ utility. Please navigate to File->Custom Scripts. Copy the script below by using the keyboard shortcut CTRL+C or the corresponding option via right click.

begin
ExecuteAVUpdateEx( 'http://avz.virusinfo.info/avz_up/', 1, '','','');
ExecuteStdScr(3);
RebootWindows(true);
end.


Paste the script into the execution window by using CTRL+V keyboard shortcut, or the "paste" option via the right click menu. Click on Run to run the script, the PC will reboot. After the reboot the LOG subfolder is created in the folder with AVZ, with a file called virusinfo_syscure.zip inside. Upload that file to rapidshare.com and paste the link here.

2) Can you also make a new HijackThis log and upload it to rapidshare.com. HijackThis: Here

1) Run this script in AVZ like before, your computer will reboot:

begin
SetAVZGuardStatus(True);
SearchRootkit(true, true);
 DeleteService('ASKService');
 StopService('ASKService');
 DelBHO('{3041d03e-fd4b-44e0-b742-2d9b88305f98}');

2) After reboot execute following script in AVZ:
