Hey, all.
I've got problems with redirects and blocked sites. Seems like this virus (malware) is targeting sites for anti-malware software. It redirects when clicking on links in Yahoo.
I've run a few different software to get rid of it, Ad-aware, Spybot, avast! and Malwarebytes....none of it has worked and I'm going nuts.

Please, oh please, help me with this.

Thanks, I appreciate the help.

Yes, I changed my DNS server in IPv4 to OpenDNS and the redirects and blocked sites have stopped.

Now, what do I need to do to be able to use my ISPs DNS server again? Is there some DNS cache on my system which is screwed up?

Leave it to opendns for now. Can you post scan log/screen shots of detected from Response Number 1 -> Second part. or
