Virus blocking Malwarbytes/antivurs Help!

December 9, 2010 at 08:10:02
Specs: Windows Vista
Please help! Hey, I've got a virus or a number of viruses that is/are blocking me from accessing nearly any website that is related to malwarebytes or any other antivirus and redirecting my searches to tazinga. Now it is redirecting me to the "internet explorer cannot display the website"I page. It has also changed the look of my windows desktop. It slightly changed how my start button looks and my browser (windows explorer) looks like a different version. That aspect comes and goes but my inability to access or download malwarebytes or any other antivirus software is unwavering. Can anyone please Help me?!?

when you turn the computer on keep tapping f8 until a menu pops up you want to use the up and down arrow keys to select the option that says safe mode with networking. that will allow you to go on the internet and should stop the virus from loading and stopping you. run malwarebytes from this as well.

you might have to disable system restore while you do this.

Hey, thanks I tried safe mode right away but (I believe due to the viurs) I don't have internet access in safe mode. My wireless detection won't turn on .

any chance of plugging it directly so it has internet. you may have to turn the wireless on. make sure its safe mode with networking.

I believe what I have is a Tazinga redirect virus. I think I will go to another computer and download the antivirus software to a removable media and try to install and run it on my laptop in safe mode. Do you think I'll be able to install and run that in safe mode, or is there anything special I'll need to do? Any thoughts?

Download Rkill first: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...

Which will stop the redirects temporarly. Please DO NOT reboot your computer though after it scans, as this will cause the malware to respawn and start again. Then download TDSSkiller here and scan with it: http://support.kaspersky.com/viruse... , what you have is called a DNS Hijack, which is where a malicious process hijacks your DNS cache on your router and than redirects you to nasty sites. Before running Rkill though, I recommend turning off Javascript in Internet Explorer and Firefox.

For Firefox: Go to Tools then Options then the Content tab, scroll down and select "Javascript".

For Internet Explorer: Go to Tools then Internet Options Then Security the select "Custom Level", and finally select the "Scripting" option.
