Another victim of the hapili redirect nightmare

Recommended Posts

Merged 3 post

Hello, I noticed the redirect about a week ago and did some research on how to remove the virus. I got the malwarebytes anti-malware program and it found several things that looked like the offending files and got rid of them, however, I still get the redirect. I've read every resent guide out there and I've gotten the virus itself, but some little bit of it is still there annoying the ever loving bat snot out of me. What have I missed? Any Ideas? Any insight would be greatly appriciated. Thank you for your time.

DO NOT use any TOOLS such as Combofix or HijackThis fixes without supervision.

Doing so could make your pc inoperatible and could require a full reinstall of your OS, losing all your programs and data.

Please run a new MBAM scan being sure to update before scanning.

About a week ago, maybe a little more now, I noticed that I was getting redirected in my google searches to a few pointless sights. I updated my anti-virus but that caught nothing, so I went the malware scanners. I ran TDSS killer and it came up clean, so I ran Malwarebytes and it caught several little files and cleaned them off. Currently my computer is acting normally except that on occasion my google searches are still redirected, though the happili page now loads with script errors. That is the only remaining piece of the happili redirect virus that I can't seem to root out. And yes, if all else fails, I will be formatting. Going to be time to do that soon anyway, I just didn't want to have to do it yet. I'm pretty sure there is some little bit of the virus attached to my registry, which I dislike messing with, or to some other equally unsavory part of my OS. Here's my Malwarebytes log.

ran flush.bat, what a great little tool. Reinstalled Firefox 12. Now firefox won't finish opening without giving me this script error chrome://browser/content/tabbrowser.xml:466, and then freezing up so that I have to ctrl,alt,del and close firefox from there. This script error makes no sence, I didn't think firefox was still useing tabbrowser. I remember this error from way back in version 2 or 3. I'm getting to old for this. ^_^

okay, so far I haven't seen the happili redirect, but I have another one now. The page it loads is empty, just white background, the tab says 'Redirect' and the URL has this in it http://click.findsearchengineresults.com/ads-clicktrack/click/jump1.do?sid=0EeODYWNq207D3G2914WUBLYDXIRXIbwHloIIUiaB4Mj5YN5IdCUmw%3D%3D&affiliate=46573&subid=10673-1-28356&rc=0&terms=redirect%20virus It comes up a bit randomly, but mostly when I search for virus stuff, which I've been doing a lot of to test. I might just cry.

Sorry, got sidetracked with work. I don't have chrome installed and I did fix that issue. It was a Firefox thing and there was a quick fix on their site for it. I'm still getting random redirects, but it is now less frequent, which is something anyway.

  • Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools. Note: If you are having difficulty properly disabling your protective programs, or are unsure as to what programs need to be disabled, please refer to the information available through this link : Protective Programs
  • Double click on ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.
    Notes: Combofix will run without the Recovery Console installed. Skip the Recovery Console part if you're running Vista or Windows 7.
    Note: If you have XP SP3, use the XP SP2 package.
    If Vista or Windows 7, skip the Recovery Console part
  • As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal.

  • Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console.

**Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.


Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:


Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the C:\ComboFix.txt using Copy / Paste in your next reply.


1.Do not mouse-click Combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

2. ComboFix may reset a number of Internet Explorer's settings, including making I-E the default browser.

3. Combofix prevents autorun of ALL CD, floppy and USB devices to assist with malware removal & increase security. If this is an issue or makes it difficult for you -- please tell your helper.

4. CF disconnects your machine from the internet. The connection is automatically restored before CF completes its run. If CF runs into difficulty and terminates prematurely, the connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.

Give it atleast 20-30 minutes to finish if needed.

Please do not attach the scan results from Combofx. Use copy/paste.

Also please describe how your computer behaves at the moment.
