Search links being redirected.

July 30, 2012 at 05:42:27
Specs: Windows 7
If I search something from a website like google, and I click the link. It will sometimes redirect me to an ad. it doesn't redirect me all the time, but if I were to open a wikipedia page about the Olympics 10 times. It will redirect me about 3 times. I have used avg, panda, kasperkey, spybot s&d, malwarebite, superantimalware, combofix, tdsskiller. Some of them only find malware, but never anything that removes this virus. The virus scanners never find anything.


Edit: Also I have tried these things in safe mode also

Alright, so I followed the instructions from the links you gave me and I saw no tdsserv.sys/alureon.sys in my device manager even after showing all hidden devices. I went to my host file in notepad, there was one extra ip, something like "::1" which I deleted and the problem persisted. When I went to device folder. I didn't find any files with the name TDSSserv.sys/TDSSSserv.sys/Alureon.sys/TDSSI.dll. I've deleted all my temp internet files and the problem persist. I already used malware bytes anti malware, still nothing showed up. The problem still persist.

try these 3 progs in EXACTLY the order listed and don't reboot untill after the last scan. If the problem still persists, do the SAME in safe mode.
1- rkill.exe
2- tdss killer
3- malwarebytes
If you still have a problem after that, run trojan remover and hitman pro....they find things others miss.

So I tried Rkill, TDSS, malwarebytes, trojan remover and hitman pro. Hitman pro found some stuff, none of it being threats. I tried clicking on some google searches, I still get redirected.

disable your current AV and install Avast free and get it to do a bootscan on reboot.
