    Default Search Engine Virus

    Hi i am having issues with 2 viruses.

    The first is the one that redirects me from the proper links that come from search engines. Using both internet explorer and Firefox.

    And secondly the one that brings up internet explorer as a background process (no actual window) and then plays audio files. I have had this in the past and was able to get it successfully removed but i do not remember how i did so.

    i have backed up my registry using ERUNT

    and here is the Hijackthis log file

    Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2

    Welcome to Safer Networking, I wish to be sure you have viewed and understand this information.
    "BEFORE you POST" (READ this Procedure before Requesting Assistance) http://forums.spybot.info/showthread.php?t=288
    All advice given is taken at your own risk.
    Please make sure you have read this information so we are on the same page.

    Make sure you read and follow the directions, anything else will slow the process and waste both of our time. I suggest you keep this computer offline except when troubleshooting, the junk may download more. If you have any tool I use, delete it and download it new from the link I provide. Read and follow the directions carefully, the tools will not work unless you do.
    The junk can be tough to remove, so do not expect fast or easy.

    Pinned (sticky) to the top of this forum, and posted above are the directions, make sure you have read and followed them.

    You have multiple infections including a trojan downloader so this will take a while. If you want to continue, we will start like this.

    1) TeaTimer is NOT disabled as instructed in the directions, please read them again so you know what is expected of you.

    2) We need first to disable TeaTimer that it doesn't interfere with fixes. You can re-enable it when you're clean again:
    * Run Spybot-S&D in Advanced Mode.
    * If it is not already set to do this Go to the Mode menu select "Advanced Mode"
    * On the left hand side, Click on Tools
    * Then click on the Resident Icon in the List
    * Uncheck "Resident TeaTimer" and OK any prompts.
    * Restart your computer.
    (leave TT disabled until we finish)

    3) Thanks to andymanchesta and anyone else who helped with the fix.

    Download SDFix and save it to your Desktop
    http://downloads.andymanchesta.com/R...ools/SDFix.exe

    Double click SDFix.exe and it will extract the files to %systemdrive%
    (Drive that contains the Windows Directory, typically C:\SDFix)

    Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
    Restart your computer
    After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
    Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
    Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
    Choose your usual account.
    Open the extracted SDFix folder and double click RunThis.bat to start the script.
    Type Y to begin the cleanup process.
    It will remove any Trojan Services and Registry Entries that it finds then prompt you to press any key to Reboot.
    Press any Key and it will restart the PC.
    When the PC restarts the Fixtool will run again and complete the removal process then display Finished, press any key to end the script and load your desktop icons.
    Once the desktop icons load the SDFix report will open on screen and also save into the SDFix folder as Report.txt
    (Report.txt will also be copied to Clipboard ready for posting back on the forum).
    Finally post the contents of the Report.txt back on the forum with a new HijackThis log

    4) Post also an uninstall list: Open Hijackthis.
    Click the "Open the Misc Tools" section Button.
    Click the "Open Uninstall Manager" Button.
    Click the "Save list..." Button.
    Save it to your desktop. Copy and paste the contents into your reply.

    Due to the lack of feedback this Topic is closed.

    If you need this topic reopened, please request this by sending the moderating team
    a PM with the address of the thread. This applies only to the original topic starter.

    If it has been four days or more since your last post, and the helper assisting you posted a response to that post to which you did not reply, your topic will not be reopened. At that point, if you still require help, please start a new topic and include a fresh HijackThis log and a link to your previous thread.

    If it has been less than four days since your last response and you need the thread re-opened, please send me or your helper a private message (pm). A valid, working link to the closed topic is required.

    Everyone else please begin a New Topic.
