Google Redirection Virus!

Specs: Windows Vista, 4GB
Hello Fellow Members,

As it seems I have the raging google redirection virus. I have no idea what to do as from what I have researched it seems to be very elusive and in most cases required an expert 'specialists' attention to fix this issue.

my google links are being redirected to random websites.
my antivirus and antimalware programs cannot communicate through the internet (thus receieve updates)
AND I can't even perform a full scan through Spybot or AVG, I think its interfering with that as well.

If anyone has any experience with this virus and how to rid my system of it, I'd be forever grateful.

Please do the following:


Save to your Desktop

Execute TDSSKiller.exe by double-clicking on it.
Press 'Start Scan'

If Malicious objects are found, do NOT allow it to fix anything, and select: Skip
Need to see the report first.

Next, click 'Continue'
Once the tool finishes, a log is produced at the root drive which is typically C:\

For example, C:\TDSSKiller.<version_date_time_log.txt

Please post the contents of that report directly in your reply.

Based on its results, we will re-run a scan and take whatever action is needed.

Also download aswMBR:

Save it to your Desktop.

Right-click aswMBR.exe and select ‘Run as Administrator‘ to run the tool.

Click ‘Scan’

Upon completion of the scan, click ‘Save log’
Save it to your Desktop

Also post that log in your reply for review.

Note - do NOT attempt any Fix!!

Another file is created by aswMBR, and it is located on the Desktop. It is named MBR.dat.

Please store the MBR.dat file, to a USB flash drive for safe keeping.
This is very important!!

Retired - Doin' Dis, Dat, and slapping malware.
