Can't get rid of this!

I can't get rid of this spyware. I have tried hijackthis, BHO clean, LSP Fix, Malware Bytes, Trend Micro, but no luck. I am in safe mode with networking and I still have the problem. What happens is when I search on google for something I get redirected and the Favicon looks like a Cursive 2 or sometimes a green earth with a grid around it. This affects all browsers on my computer. Any ideas on what this is or how to remove it?

You may want to try
1- Trojan Remover
2- Hitman Pro
remove all they find and when they run clean you can uninstall them

If those 2 don't work, try combofix:

Follow the tutorial and you should be fine.

Hi, Boogyman,

First, try True Sword:

http://www.securitystronghold.com/t...

Download it and register for 1 month trial. Its free and fullfunctional for 1 month. Perform scan and remove found items.

If that won't help:

Please, do the following:

Download following file and run it.

Tell me if error will still occur and send me log generated.
You will need to disable active anti-virus temporary.

Hmmm....I thought I did suggest combofix?? Maybe my eyes are going ;-)

Also, if True Sword requests you use a credit card to access the 30 day free trial, I would suggest NOT to try it. I have never used that program.

XpUser4Real,

I was typing my answer while you added it and haven't seen it.

True Sword don't ask credit card - if it helps you can buy it - if not remove it. It is free fullfunctional trial for 1 month.

no problem, I just don't believe in name, address and credit card, etc when registering for a free trial....I stay away from those.

Awesome thanks for all the great advice and tips. I hit it with ComboFix and turns out it was a rootkit. Everything seems to be working fine now.
