My PC was recently infected. After running Malwarebytes, the virus was supposedly removed (I did not record which ones were detected, unfortunately). When I started it back up, it was still redirecting search results in google to malicious ad pages. This occurred in IE, Firefox, and even Google Chrome, which I installed after the fact, hoping a fresh browser would not have those issues.
Additionally, McAfee VirusScan became disabled almost immediately afterward.
I have un/reinstalled McAfee and re-scanned/cleaned using MalWarebytes, but to no avail.
Any adware removal utilities, rootkit detectors, and the like seem to shut themselves down when I attemp to run them too. The progress meter begins, then at some point they just disappear.
I'm hoping these are somewhat usual symptoms these days. I had a similar issue two years ago, but they cleaned up rather nicely after using Malwarebytes and combofix.
Should my first step here be to DL DDS and post a log file?
Thanks in advance!
