    Run this quick scan, it wont take long

    1. Go HERE and download FileLister.
    • Save it to your Desktop
    • Rt Click ->> Extract all ->> And extract it to your Desktop
    • Additional help on extracting zip files can be found HERE
    • Open the File Lister Folder.
    • Note: Leave the FileLister.vbe file in the folder and run it from there.


    • Rt Click FileLister.vbe ->>Select Open Then Open to confirm.
    • When the program is fnished it will produce a log for you C:\Files.txt

    Copy and paste the contents of that log in your reply.

    I ran the tool as described, and while the file was created, there wasn't anything in it. I ran it in safe mode, should I boot up in normal for it to work properly?

    No, thats fine. I was just looking for bad drivers that may have been installed in the last month or so and none have, so thats good news malwarewise.

    How are things running now ?

    Hold on a second. I may have been looking at the wrong Files.txt. I just noticed that another Files.txt, Hidden.txt and UNI.txt were created in the same directory as the tool. The Files.txt I was looking at was at C:\Files.txt. Does that matter?

    In terms of how things are running now, things seem to be running a little faster now in general, however, I McAffee seems to be having some issues. Let me check running Spybot and doing google searches and see how those are behaving now.

    Also, I read somewhere about old version of Java runtimes sometimes making infections like possible. Any advice on that?

    Uh oh, my browser (firefox is the one I generally use) is still redirecting on Google searches. It redirected to some website that tried to download a file immediately. I closed the browser and disconnected from the internet again.

    Also, Google chrome is still not loading, or working at all apparently. (I tried this while connected, of course.)

    I did not test Spybot yet, as it looks like I still have a problem. Man this is so frustrating....

    This may fix the Firefox redirects

    Please download GooredFix from one of the locations below and save it to your Desktop
    Download Mirror #1
    Download Mirror #2
    • Ensure all Firefox windows are closed.
    • To run the tool, double-click it (XP), or right-click and select Run As Administrator (Vista).
    • When prompted to run the scan, click Yes.
    • GooredFix will check for infections, and then a log will appear. Please post the contents of that log in your next reply (it can also be found on your desktop, called GooredFix.txt).

    FYI, I tested Spybot by running a scan. As before, it crashes once the scan has completed. Because it crashed, I couldn't see much more than reports of tracking cookies. Also, WildTangent, which I understand is bundled with some games, but has a bad reputation. (I have a legal copy of "World Of Goo" installed, so that could be the reason for it.)

    Here's the results of that GooredFix Scan:

    Windows crashed on the first boot, and it's was very, very slow this time... But YES! It looks like the redirect is fixed!

    However, Google Chrome is still broken. (Just in case that was supposed to fix this as well.)
