Browser Hijack

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Can't find or clean browser hijack. Open new browsers tabs to random sites.

Have used MBAM, Avira AntiVir Personal, tried to run GMER Rootkit Scanner but after about 5 minutes running it flashes a blue screen and reboots Windows.

Attach says there is a Hosts File Hijack, but I don't see anything wrong with my hosts file.

Hi and welcome to the Malwarebytes forums. ;)

I'm melboy and I am going to try to help you with your problem. Please take note of the following:

  1. I will be working on your Malware issues this may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.
  2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.
  3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.
  4. Please refrain from making any further changes to your computer (Install/Uninstall programs, delete files, edit the registry, etc...)
  5. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans whilst I am helping you.
  6. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
  7. DO NOT attach logs unless requested to. Please copy/paste all requested logs into your replies.
  8. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.
  9. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.

NOTE: Please be aware that removing Malware is a potentially hazardous undertaking. I will take care not to knowingly suggest courses of action that might damage your computer. However it is impossible for me to foresee all interactions that may happen between the software on your computer and those we'll use to clear you of infection, and I cannot guarantee the safety of your system. It is possible that we might encounter situations where the only recourse is to re-format and re-install your operating system, or to necessitate you taking your computer to a repair shop.

Because of this, I advise you to backup any personal files and folders before you start.

No Reply Within 3 Days Will Result In Your Topic Being Closed!! If you need more time, please inform me.



  • Download the file TDSSKiller.zip and save it on your desktop
  • Extract the file tdskiller.zip, it will create a folder named tdsskiller on your desktop. (Zip/UnZip Tutorial)
  • Next double-click the tdsskiller Folder on your desktop.
  • Double click tdsskiller.exe to run the tool.
  • If malicious services or files have been detected, the utility may prompt to reboot the PC in order to complete the disinfection procedure. Please reboot if prompted.
  • A log will be created on your root (usually C:) drive. The log is like UtilityName.Version_Date_Time_log.txt.
    for example, C:\TDSSKiller.
  • Please post the contents in your next reply
