    Exclamation Google Re-directs

    I own an HP Compaq computer which uses Windows Vista and I use Firefox as my primary browser. On Monday 6 August 2012 I was searching the internet and was directed to a spam site, it happened several more times (taking me to different websites than the one I intended to visit). On Tuesday 7 August 2012 I ran spybot which found nothing, but a Malware Bytes scan found several trojans.

    After Malware Bytes initially found the problem, I thought that it was removed but when I used Google it happened again, so I ran Malware Bytes which on the second run found nothing at all.

    I did an online search (using Bing) and learned of something called the Google re-direct virus, I don't know if that particular bug is what I encountered but I need help with this problem.

    I'm pasting a copy of my INITIAL Malware Bytes report which has information about the trojan:

    Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

    Database version: v2012.08.07.04

    Windows Vista Service Pack 2 x86 NTFS

    It's 12:08 AM and too late to run another scan but I wanted to post this information lest it be lost when I turn of my computer.

    Hello computer_user,

    Please refer to the forum sticky again and the instructions in post #2 on how to provide preliminary DDS and aswMBR logs used for analysis.

    Then start a new topic providing the logs as shown in that FAQ with a link back to this thread and a volunteer analyst will advise you when available.

    Best regards.
