google redirects, malwarebytes won't run, process explorer looks fine?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm not sure where to start...

I got a google redirect virus + a AV Care and Total Security explosion of malware yesterday. After looking around, I downloaded malwarebytes and tried to install it, but the installation didn't fully complete. Windows does recognize it as a "newly installed program" but when I try to run it, although processes recognizes that mbam is running, nothing really loads.

I tried looking through the "Procedures to help resolve issues preventing MBAM from running" but nothing quite fits the procedures outlined there. I did manage to get HJT to run, and this is my log:

Hi karen8127, Welcome to Malwarebytes :(

We Need to check for Rootkits with RootRepeal

  1. Download RootRepeal from the following location and save it to your desktop.

[*]Rar Mirrors - Only if you know what a RAR is and can extract it.

[*]Extract RootRepeal.exe from the archive.

[*]Open rootRepealDesktopIcon.png on your desktop.

[*]Click the reportTab.png tab.

[*]Click the btnScan.png button.

[*]Check all seven boxes: checkBoxes2.png

[*]Push Ok

[*]Check the box for your main system drive (Usually C:), and press Ok.

[*]Allow RootRepeal to run a scan of your system. This may take some time.

[*]Once the scan completes, push the saveReport.png button. Save the log to your desktop, using a distinctive name, such as RootRepeal.txt. Include this report in your next reply, please.
