Please help me!! I had the Windows Defender XP 2010 virus or whatever it was called. I finally got rid of it using malware bites. Now every time I try to search it gives me gala directory or galasearch. This is driving me crazy!! Malwarebytes finds nothing wrong. Here is the log:

I would like to get a better look at your system, please do the following so I can get some more detailed logs.

Download DDS:

  • Please download DDS by sUBs from one of the links below and save it to your desktop:
    dds_scr.gif
    Download DDS and save it to your desktop

Link2
Link3
Please disable any anti-malware program that will block scripts from running before running DDS.
  • Double-Click on dds.scr and a command window will appear. This is normal.

    • DDS.txt
    • Attach.txt

    [*]A window will open instructing you save & post the logs

Gmer

    GMER_2.png
  • In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Uncheck the following ...
    • IAT/EAT
    • Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)

    [*]Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish

    [*]Once done click on the [save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.txt" or it will save as a .log file

    [*]Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop, and post it in reply

**Caution**

Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries

Note: Do not run any programs while Gmer is running.
