  1. Disregard that post; used system restore last night as a last resort. Browser hijacker is either removed or inoperable and browsers are working normally. Thanks for offering to help, regardless.
  2. So after doing something incredibly stupid and actually buying into one of those B.S "installers" that like to download crapware without your consent, I now have this "esurf.biz" hijacker that has taken over my browsers. I've ran Malwarebytes and nothing was found. I download things incredibly slowly now and so far I've come up short. Any help removing this would be appreciated.
  3. My bad. Forgot to post the link to the results Here we go: https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/512f15d040262d148cdc149b8210284f19a22afc45a20453eaefb65ab7daf2bc/analysis/
  4. I uploaded the file to virustotal and nothing came back as defining the file malicious. Additionally, yes, I have Grand Theft Auto 5 on my machine, and (at the time of this post) I do recall having played just yesterday. Could that be the cause?
  5. Hello, A file (no specific extension) has appeared twice, in a row, in my AppData folder. The first time I encountered it, I shrugged it off and simply deleted it. Today, as of about four hours ago, the file reappeared in the same location again. The file goes by the name of "Local剜捯獫慴⁲慇敭屳呇⁁屖湥楴汴浥湥⹴湩潦". I tried running the Chinese characters through translate, and because of the nature of the language I couldn't quite really understand what it was talking about when I read the translation. Now while I haven't noticed anything out of character on my machine, this file appeared some odd months ago for the first time in which I deleted it. It comes back tonight, and now I'm scratching my head thinking this is a suspicious file. If somebody who speaks Chinese knows that the characters listed describe it as a malicious file, what can I do to prevent it from reappearing?
  6. Here are the logs. Addition.txt AdwCleanerS1.txt ESET Log.txt FRST.txt JRT.txt mbam-log-2013-12-14 (11-55-50).txt mbar-log-2013-12-14 (11-25-45).txt system-log.txt
  7. You know what? After a bit of thinking, I've decided - Let's go ahead and take the riskier option: Use advanced programs to find the rootkit.
  8. I don't recall the computer being used for anything important like banking, credit cards, etc. I haven't got a clue where it came from because I don't recall downloading anything suspicious on there at all. I mostly used it for games, but nowadays I don't use it often anymore because I've moved into the game console area now. It's actually been a while since I've used it, but I know it's still on there because I've seen the antivirus behave oddly and on several occasions I caught the antivirus process being killed by what I assume is the malware that's on there. I'm not very experienced in the area of malware removal (like digging into the registry, that sort of stuff), but from what I've interpreted your post as, I now have two options with dealing with this. The first option is to nuke the hard drive and start over, but would it guarantee that the malware would be removed? The second option is to continue trying to get rid of it with more programs, but it's not guaranteed that it will get removed. So, would you personally suggest that I format the hard drive and start over? Again, I'm not very good at this, so I'm thinking go ahead and nuke the hard drive.
  9. Alright, here are the logs from Rkill and RougeKiller. Rkill.txt RKreport0_S_12102013_200506.txt
  10. So, I got this nasty little "LiveSearchNow" virus on my computer here; I've tried everything in the book, and nothing . Whenever I search something that's related, or even remotely related to malware removal for that matter, I get redirected to advertisement sites that have absolutely nothing to do with malware removal. MalwareBytes, so far, has not detected this. I am very close to nuking the hard drive and starting over.... yeah, it's that annoying. So, anyone out there to lend a hand?
