Google redirects link, BSOD

June 30, 2009 at 11:31:55
Specs: Windows XP
My google search results have been 90% of the time redirecting to other sites. Being a bum I did not address this for a week but today my computer gave the blue screen of death twice within an hour.

I have the following programs that I run regularly.
-Ad Aware
-Windows Defender
-Malware Bytes

I have ran all 5 and so far no BSOD since but my Google links are still redirecting. How harmful is this? Regardless I would like to get it fixed. Thank you for your help in advance.

Follow these steps in order numbered:

1) Download GMER:
[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 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 Post the download link to the uploaded file in your post.

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

Note: Please give me the exact name of the file you downloaded in step 1 + post your log from step 8 in your next post.

Ok I was able to finish the scan this time. I guess the BSOD comes in pairs.

I downloaded GMER as hgl4ns1c

The Rapidshare link to my log is

I would also like to mention that I have been playing online poker a lot lately. Would my program Ultimatebet have anything to do with this? Thanks!

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.

ExecuteAVUpdateEx( '', 1, '','','');

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 inside. Upload that file to and paste the link here.

2) 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 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.

Follow these Steps in order numbered. Don't proceed to next step unless you have successfully completed previous step:

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

SearchRootkit(true, true);

2) After reboot execute following script in AVZ:


A file called should be created in C:\. Upload that file to and Private message me download link.

3) Attach a Combofix log, please review and follow these instructions carefully.

Download it here ->

Before Saving it to Desktop, please rename it to something like 123.exe to stop malware from disabling it.

Now, please make sure no other programs are running, close all other windows and pause Antivirus/Sypware programs ( Programs to disable) until after the scanning and removal process has taken place.

Please double click on the file you downloaded. Follow the onscreen prompts to start the scan. Once the scanning process has started please DO NOT click on the Combofix window or attempt to use your computer as this can cause the scanning process to stall. It may take a while to complete scanning and this is normal.

You will be disconnected from the internet and your desktop icons/toolbars will disappear during scanning, do not worry, this is normal and it will be restored after scanning has completed.

Combofix will create a logfile and display it after your computer has rebooted. Usually located in c:\combofix.txt, please upload that file to and paste the link here.

4) Please zip up C:\qoobox\quarantine and upload it, to a filehost such as Then, Private Message me the Download links to the uploaded files.

Hi, I did not use my laptop for a couple days and forgot about the issue. Then a few days ago, I received the blue screen again. This time however I am having trouble starting up my computer. I get to a page where it is an all black screen and a lock appears on the upper left corner. I believe it is requesting a password. I am not sure what to do now.

I would like to clarify that I am not on the laptop while typing this and that I cannot get to my desktop at all.
