New spyware downloads being negated

Recommended Posts


Don't know if this is the right place to discuss this, and I'm very unsavvy in tech...this is my first post here.

I found recently I was getting redirected in MSN to Google pages, Yahoo Jobs, and some other search engine. So I ran my virus and spyware (McAfee in AOL, Spyware Terminator, CW Shredder, and now finally Malwarebytes-after my second download), and McAfee didn't pick up anything, Spyware terminator, the same, CW Shredder did list something on the first scan, but then it was deleted, and now Malwarebytes is being deleted before I can even get the first scan going.

Help please! I have no idea where to start from here.

PS Spyware Terminator will scan, finds nothing (and then it says it's not there). It is the only one to come back after restarting the computer, besides McAfee. Also, I have Spyware Blaster running in the background, but haven't tried anything other than updating with it (it's not a manual scan type application-sure you all know).

This is beginning to feel like it is very serious, and I am wondering if I should take it to a repair place to get this sorted? Any ideas appreciated. And this is all new to me-never had anything like this before.

Welcome to Malwarebytes! If you think you have an infection? Please follow the instructions below: PS: note the HJK Forum is busy, 1-2 days for them to address your issue. expect to download tools & run them with the helper who will work with you. I think it will be lots cheaper than a repair shop... All the tools are free.

follow these instructions & post it in the HiJackLog Forum please

Scan and post logs - read note at bottom in green

If you're having Malware related issues with your computer that you're unable to resolve.

  1. Please read and follow the instructions provided here: I'm infected - What do I do now?
  2. If needed please post your logs in a NEW topic here: Malware Removal - HijackThis Logs
  3. When posting logs please do not use any Quote, Code, or other tags. Please copy/paste directly into your post and do not attach files unless requested.

  • Please do not post any logs in the General forum. We do not work on any logs posted in the General forum.
  • Please do not install any software or use any removal/scanning tool except for those you're requested to run by the Helper that will assist you.
  • Using these other tools often makes the cleanup task more difficult and time consuming.
  • If you have already submitted for assistance at one of the other support sites on the Internet then you should not post a new log here, you should stay working with the Helper from that site until the issue is resolved.
  • Do not assume you're clean because you don't see something in the logs. Please wait until the person assisting you provides feedback.
  • There are often many others that require asistance as well, so please be patient. If no one has responded within 48 hours then please go ahead and post a request for review

NOTE: If for some reason you're unable to run some or any of the tools in the first link, then skip that step and move on to the next one. If you can't even run HijackThis, then just proceed and post a NEW topic as shown in the second link describing your issues and someone will assist you as soon as they can.

Thanks yardbird, very much appreciated for your help. I could not get the downloads to work long enough to get a scan, so I posted a log I got from Spyware Terminator (fast auto scan-no manual scan works) in the log forum:
