Anti-virus say no virus but there clearly is

January 21, 2011 at 06:32:52
Specs: Windows XP SP3
I encounterd the virus that installs the fake Palladium ant-viros on my Windows XP SP3 computer.

I have run Microsoft Security Essentials and MalWarebytes. They have detected and removed trogan viruses. I have rerun the scans and they come up clean. But still when I use Internet Explorer I am being redirected to scam sites.

Any ideas other than a complete re-install?

Run Hijack This & post the log. AV software wouldn't know if there is a virus or not.

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

guapo, all I have seen lately in your latest replies is that anti-virus programs are junk. What are you trying to prove? Why do you think big corporations use anti-virus programs?

Also, hijackthis is old hat anymore and hopefully you will give the origional poster some help on that as only qualified helpers should make a HJT request.

Hijack This is still a great tool & I have helped many people clean their machines with it. Not only that, when I see AV software & malware both listed in those logs, running at the same time, it tells me that the AV software didn't do it's job.

Big companies have no choice but to use it for 2 reasons. Something better such as MJ Registry Watcher, isn't ready for corporate use & most users don't know how to protect their system correctly.

HJT this is a great tool, and alot of AV providers still ask for HJT logs to help with virus removal.

OK, after trying various anti virus, anti-spy and root kit removers the only one that solved the problem was this root kit remover from Kapersky :
