finderpuma.com infection browser hijacker help

Recommended Posts

My computer was recently infected with malware that caused all of my icons to be hidden and also the start menu. I am running windows xp 64bit. I have done numerous scans such as malwarebytes, sd search and destroy, etc.. and was able to remove the malware causing this. I then used a program called unhide to restore my icons and start menu. Everything is ok in these terms, but I am still getting notifications from avast for URL:MAL and my browser will redirect me to bogus websites when clicking on a link in Google. The initial url that shows in the browser when the redirection occurs is finderpuma..com and then it goes to a random website. I have searched for finderpuma.com and have found brief information on it being a browser hijacker. Does anyone know how I can remove this? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi and welcome to Malwarebytes.

Please update MBAM, run a Quick Scan, and post its log.

Next, download DDS by sUBs and save it to your Desktop.

Double-click on the DDS icon and let the scan run. When it has run two logs will be produced, please post only DDS.txt directly into your reply.
