    Hi,

    • Download OTL to your desktop.
    • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
    • When the window appears, underneath Output at the top change it to Minimal Output.
    • Copy-paste following contents into custom scan -area:
      netsvcs
      drivers32
      %SYSTEMDRIVE%\*.*
      %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
      CREATERESTOREPOINT
      %systemroot%\System32\config\*.sav
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update\Results\Install|LastSuccessTime /rs
      c:\users\Don\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\dbhpypvr.default\extensions\*.* /s
      C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\extensions\*.* /s
    • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
      • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
      • Attach OTL.txt to your post.

    Hi,

    Disable Spybot's TeaTimer to make sure it won'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


    Start OTL
    • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the following

      Code:
      :OTL
      FF - prefs.js..browser.search.defaultenginename: "www.google-feed.net"
      FF - prefs.js..browser.search.order.1: "Web Search"
      FF - prefs.js..browser.search.order.2: "Google"
      FF - prefs.js..browser.search.useDBForOrder: true
      FF - prefs.js..keyword.URL: "http://www.veerboo.com/results.php?q="
      :Commands
      [emptytemp]
    • Then click the Run Fix button at the top
    • Let the program run unhindered, reboot when it is done
    • Then post results and a new OTL log (the latter one requires new run with OTL).

    Hi, thanks for the reassurance!

    Has it helped? ... well, not really ... the redirect still happens but it now takes about 5 or 6 seconds before it kicks in, instead of immediately.

    Hi,

    Time to reinstall Firefox I think. You have to do a complete uninstall first. Backup bookmarks if needed and then follow instructions here (make sure you select Remove my Firefox personal data option while uninstalling).

    Reinstall Firefox and see if problem still occurs (post fresh OTL.txt).

    Hi, old Firefox uninstalled, new installation completed and so far, so good - it hasn't yet redirected. I think maybe you have worked your magic once again!

    Here's the OTL log, too.

    Good to hear that had some effect

    If no other issues, it's time to secure your system to prevent against further intrusions.


    THESE STEPS ARE VERY IMPORTANT

    Let's reset system restore
    Reset and Re-enable your System Restore to remove infected files that have been backed up by Windows. The files in System Restore are protected to prevent any programs changing those files. This is the only way to clean these files: You will lose all previous restore points which are likely to be infected. Please note you need Administrator Access to do clean the restore points.

    A To disable the System Restore feature:

    1. Click on the Start button.
    2. Hover over the Computer option, right click on it and then click Properties.
    3. On the left hand side, click Advanced Settings.
    4. If asked to permit the action, click on Allow.
    5. Click on the System Protection tab.
    6. Uncheck any checkboxes listed for your hard drives.
    7. Press OK.


    B. Reboot.

    C Turn ON System Restore.
    Follow the steps like you did when disabling system restore but on step 6. check any checkboxes listed for your hard drives.


    Now lets uninstall ComboFix:
    • Click START then RUN
    • Now copy-paste Combofix /uninstall in the runbox and click OK



    • Double-click OTL.exe.
    • Click the CleanUp! button.
    • Select Yes when the
      Begin cleanup Process?
      prompt appears.
    • If you are prompted to Reboot during the cleanup, select Yes.
    • The tool will delete itself once it finishes, if not delete it by yourself.


    Note: If you receive a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding OTL attempting to contact the internet, please allow it to do so.


    UPDATING WINDOWS AND INTERNET EXPLORER

    IMPORTANT: You Need to Update Windows and Internet Explorer to protect your computer from the malware that is around on the Internet. Please go to the windows update site to get the critical updates.

    If you are running Microsoft Office, or any portion thereof, go to the Microsoft's Office Update site and make sure you have at least all the critical updates installed (Free) Microsoft Office Update.

    Make your Internet Explorer more secure

    This can be done by following these simple instructions:
    From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
    Click once on the Security tab
    Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
    Click once on the Custom Level button.
    Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
    Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
    Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
    Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
    Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
    Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
    When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
    If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
    Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.



    The following are recommended third party programs that are designed to keep your computer clean. A link as well as a brief description is included with each item.

    • hosts file:
      • Every version of windows has a hosts file as part of them.
      • In a very basic sense, they are used to locate webpages.
      • We can customize a hosts file so that it blocks certain webpages.
      • However, it can slow down certain computers.
      • This is why using a hosts file is optional!!

      Download it here. Make sure you read the instructions on how to install the hosts file. There is a good tutorial here
      If you decide to download the hosts file, the slowdown problems can usually be avoided by following these steps:
      1. Click the start button (at the lower left hand corner of your screen)
      2. Click run
      3. In the dialog box, type services.msc
      4. hit enter, then locate dns client
      5. Highlight it, then double-click it.
      6. On the dropdown box, change the setting from automatic to manual.
      7. Click ok
    • Download and run Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI) and fix its findings.



    Just a final reminder for you. I am trying to stress these two points.
    UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE!!! Make sure you do this about every 1-2 weeks.
    Make sure all of your security programs are up to date.
    Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.


    Once again, please post and tell me how things are going with your system... problems etc.

    Have a great day,
    Blade
