Odd but definitely fishy

Recommended Posts

Ok, so recently I have cleaned my computer several times over with various scans by marlwarebytes and avast anti virus.

The real reason I am posting here is because there is a problem that they cant find.

Every once in a while while clicking a link on google to websites like ign.com or even typing in a url or sometimes just clicking on an article on g4tv.com

my browser will open a window to a website like this http://www.allthebrands.com/search-results...s=ign&q=ign

thankfully some of these websites are dangerous, but other times they have trojan viruses attached.

so, my question is, i dont think need to do any of the required logs because my system isnt locked up or anything.

Its just every time im browsing the internet, regardless of what browser, that happens. Its not a popup or anything its a almost like a direct link. And i have uninstalled my web browsers multiple times and reinstalled them.

Im willing to do anything to fix the problem.

Currently im using windows xp professional service pack 2

im also currently using opera, but only because i got frustrated with mozilla because of this problem but now its happening to opera

Hello boomerfreak1 and welcome to the forums here at MalwareBytes.


The problem you have is a clear sign of infection, and probably rootkit related.

Please follow the instructions at this link.

Then post the logs from MBAM, DDS, and GMER back to this link. Do not start a new topic.

NOTE: If MBAM is coming back clean you can skip that step.
