The Dreaded Redirect

Recommended Posts

I got nailed with a malware attack the other day. I knew it right away because a Java logo that would appear on my screen and my computer slowed down. I had been getting it alot lately. Instead of waiting for the warnings to pop up I immediately rebooted into safemode and ran MBAM it turned up 3 infected files a fake alert and a couple of trojan droppers if I remember correctly, after I got rid of them I noticed things still weren't right with my machine so I ran another MBAM scan and came up with 2 rootkits. Everything seemed fine speed wise but I would get redirected, not all the time but usually after ten minutes, after it happens the first time it happens almost everytime until I close the browser and open a new one. I know now why I got it, my Java was way out of date(I have since updated it)

I have used every scan known to man. Avast, Super Antispyware, I have used MBAM with and without the MBAM.com rename trick and I keep coming up with nothing.

My question is do I have to go the combofix log route with an administrator or is this redirecting virus/malware something that will be detected in your next update or version of MBAM?
