Need Help Removing a Redirect Virus

Hello,

I have a redirect virus on my computer. I have read the necessary information on how what to do before I run the HijackThis program.

I have a few questions:

1) How do I know if I have an unpatched, unprotected Windows XP installation?

2) If I do have an unpatched, unprotected Windows XP installation, I can't connect to the Microsoft Downloads page to check that portion.

Will this affect the rest of the process in removing the redirect virus?

Thank you - I look forward to getting rid of this annoying virus!

Best,

Grace

Hello

Leave Windows update, and continue with the other instruction.

If you really have an unpatched XP we´ll deal with it later

Hi,

I have downloaded a copy of the Malawarebyte program to replace my old version, but I cannot run the setup. Also, I cannot uninstall the old version.

I have tried downloading Combofix through several different sources, but my browser cannot connect to the server.

See if you download this -








  • Please download OTViewIt by OldTimer to your desktop.

  • Double click on the OTViewIt.exe icon on your desktop. If you are using Windows Vista, right click the icon and select Run as Administrator.

  • Check the Scan All Users checkbox and leave Use Whitelist checked. Set the File Age to 30 days.

  • Click on the Run Scan button. Two reports that are located in the same location as OTViewIt will open.

OTViewIt.txt <-- Will be opened
Extra.txt <-- Will be minimized

Copy and Paste the logs into your next reply.

Hi,

Sorry no I cannot establish a connection to the server. However I was able to download HijackThis through the Bulldog link when it did not direct me to another website. Does this help?

Not really ;-)




Try malwarebyte, this way -




Download malwarebyte

[color=#222222>https://www.download.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?tag=mncol;pop&cdlPid=10878968[/url]



Or here:

https://www.download.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?tag=mncol;pop&cdlPid=10878968[/color]


Save the file as setup.exe


Run the setup.exe file
When it gets to the final step of the installation it will seem like it froze....it hasn't but it will take anywhere from 15mins to an hour to get through that step so just let it do its thing.
Go into the Malware folder in through Program Files
Rename the mbam.exe or what not file to mab.exe and run it.
Do a full computer scan
Check all and remove/fix/delete them.


Restart your computer and post the log





If automatic update fail, download this manual update ->

Is this thread still active? Your date of the last edit says June but the previous post was in December(is why I asked). I have been fighting a redirect virus or trojan as well and am interested in the results. :hop:
