Search Engine Results being hijacked!?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

This is my first post. I've had a problem since May of this year in that when I click on search engine results, I am redirected to an unrelated site. On occasions new windows also open up. At the time this first occurred I was and still am running McAfee Internet Security. Since then I have obtained Stopzilla and although they get rid of a lot of bugs (whih I presume are being downloaded as a result of the unwanted redirections) neither programme has got rid of the bug that's at the root of all this.

Recently I have tried Avast and Spybot. They find the odd thing but the main problem still remains. The same also goes for Malwarebytes. Any help you can give me would be really appreceiated. This problem's driving me nuts!!

Below is the text from the latest Malwarebytes scan - but it doesn't say very much except everything's OK - which clearly it is not!

Hello Borislav,

Thank you for your very quick response to my post.

I have read the contents of the link you supplied but I am not at all technically adept in computers beyond the basics, so a few questions to start with as I do not wish to make matters worse!

As I undrstand it, I need to:

Download DeFogger and disable my CD emulation drivers. What effect will this have on my computer?

Download DDS. How do I disable a script blocker and where do I find it? Then run the program.

Download GMER root scanner and follow the instructions to produce attach.txt and ark.txt

I then copy DDS.txt into my reply and attch ark.txt and attach.txt

Have I understood everything correctly?

Regards,

Hello again Borislav,

This morning I downloaded and ran DeFogger. During the process, I did not receive an error message but it produced the file defogger_disable on my desktop, which follows this message. Also, it did not ask me to reboot. I await your further instructions.

Regards,

Brian.

Hello Borislav,

I have now run the scans. DDS follows this message. the other two are in the zipped file attached.

After ARK.txt had saved, my machine froze! I had to manually restart to get going again.

Regards,

Brian.

Step 2

Please go into the Control Panel, Add/Remove and for now remove ALL versions of JAVA

Then run this tool to help cleanup any left over Java

Hello Borislav,

I have now undertakem your latest instructions, but please note:

1. I had a slight problem uninstalling Adobe Reader 7.1.0. There was a link to Microsoft Office 2000 and I had to allow it to reconfigure this program before it would delete Adobe. I do not know what effect this will have on the operation of MS Office. Also in Program Files there is still a reference to Adobe 7.0.5 but Adobe does not now appear in the "Show all Programs" list and all my pdfs on the desktop do not have the adobe logo but show the default windows logo so I presume Adobe has gone?

2. The only reference to Java that I could find (after running JavaRa) was at C:\Windows\Sun, which I deleted. I couldn't find any other folders at the addresses you provided.

It seemed easier to zip all of the files and so they are all in the attched. Hope this is OK.

Regards,

Brian.

Maybe some leftovers, nothing important.

Now:

**Note: If you need more detailed information, please visit the web page of ComboFix in BleepingComputer. **

Please note that these fixes are not instantaneous. Most infections require more than one round to properly eradicate.

Stay with me until given the 'all clear' even if symptoms diminish. Lack of symptoms does not always mean the job is complete.

Kindly follow my instructions and please do no fixing on your own or running of scanners unless requested by me or another helper.

Please download ComboFix from

Here or Here to your Desktop.

**Note: In the event you already have Combofix, this is a new version that I need you to download. It is important that it is saved and renamed following this process directly to your desktop**

  1. If you are using Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:
    • Open Tools -> Options -> Main tab
    • Set to Always ask me where to Save the files.

[*]During the download, rename Combofix to Combo-Fix as follows:

CF_download_FF.gif

CF_download_rename.gif

[*]It is important you rename Combofix during the download, but not after.

[*]Please do not rename Combofix to other names, but only to the one indicated.

[*]Close any open browsers.

[*]Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix.

-----------------------------------------------------------

  • Very Important! Temporarily disable your anti-virus, script blocking and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan. They can interfere with ComboFix or remove some of its embedded files which may cause unpredictable results.
  • Click on this link to see a list of programs that should be disabled. The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.

    -----------------------------------------------------------


  • Close any open browsers.
  • WARNING: Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet as soon as it starts
  • Please do not attempt to re-connect your machine back to the Internet until Combofix has completely finished.
  • If there is no internet connection after running Combofix, then restart your computer to restore back your connection.

-----------------------------------------------------------

[*]Double click on combo-Fix.exe & follow the prompts.

[*]When finished, it will produce a report for you.

[*]Please post the C:\Combo-Fix.txt for further review.

**Note: Do not mouseclick combo-fix's window while it's running. That may cause it to stall**

Hello Borislav,

I'm afraid we have a problem.

I followed the instructions and ran Combofix. After downloading the Windows Recovery Console it started to scan but after about 1 minute the screen went blank and the laptop started to reboot. When it had all loaded up, I ran Combofix again but exactly the same thing happened.

After it had rebooted the second time, I re-enabled my anti-virus and spyware programmes so that I could post this message. Almost immediately, Stopzilla warned me that it had identified a bug "System Policies. DisabledRegistry Tools". I'm not sure if this is real or something caused by Combofix.

I eagerly await your instructions.

Regards,

Brian.

Hello Borislav,

Please read my last post of yesterday along with this one for the full picture.

After I posted last evening I did a full Stopzilla scan. It found 30+ infections most of which were tracking cookies. However, it did find the two problems I told you about yesterday plus 2 trojans (GSAF) and 2 adware (Cognac). I removed them and re-scanned. It found 1 more GSAF and one more Cognac. I removed those and re-scanned this morning and that came up clean.

Before I started this post I tried a search but was immediately re-directed to an unrelated site and after I had logged on here a new window opened up again - so the problem still exists!

I await your further instructions.

Regards,

Brian.

Please, don't do anything I tell you to do!

Delete your copy of ComboFix, download a new fresh and try again in Safe Mode with Networking:

Hello Borislav,

I followed your instructions and after several restarts, ComboFix eventually finished and produced a log which is attached below.

However, before posting this, I re-enabled McAfee and Stopzilla. Within a minute or so, SZ alerted me that it had detected "System Policies. DisabledRegistryTools" and "CatchMe". I have not deleted nor scanned but await your instructions.

regards,

Brian.

Hello Borislav,

I'm not sure! Because Stopzilla warned me of infections, I thought it best to leave it until you contacted me. I have just done a few searches and there has been no redirections and no new windows have popped up, so I am cautiously optimistic. I would like to continue to test it over the week-end and then get back to you on Monday, if that's OK?

HOWEVER, in the meantime what do I do about the Stopzilla warning? It says I have 27 infections, of which 23 are "CatchMe" a trojan found at HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet... and 4 infections of "SystemPolicies" a Hijacker found at hkus\S-1-5-21-1766507506-170469... and hklm\Software\microsoft\windows\...

Thanks for all your help.

Brian.

Hello Borislav

I have now used my laptop for 2 days without any recurrence of the problem. I can't believe that this is coincidental so I must assume that Combofix has done the trick! Thank you very much! Although I have not made a payment yet, I surely will.

I guess we now need to put back all the things that have been uninstalled etc?

Regards,

Brian.

That's right, Brian! :)

Last steps:

Step 1

* Go to start > run and copy and paste next command in the field:

ComboFix /uninstall

Make sure there's a space between Combofix and /

Then hit enter.

This will uninstall Combofix, delete its related folders and files, reset your clock settings, hide file extensions, hide the system/hidden files and resets System Restore again.

Step 2

To enable CD Emulation programs using DeFogger please perform these steps:

  1. Please download DeFogger to your desktop.
  2. Once downloaded, double-click on the DeFogger icon to start the tool.
  3. The application window will now appear. You should now click on the Enable button to enable your CD Emulation drivers
  4. When it prompts you whether or not you want to continue, please click on the Yes button to continue
  5. When the program has completed you will see a Finished! message. Click on the OK button to exit the program.
  6. If CD Emulation programs are present and have been enabled, DeFogger will now ask you to reboot the machine. Please allow it to do so by clicking on the OK button.

Step 3

Please manually delete Defogger, JavaRa, DDS and GMER.

Step 4

Please download and install the latest version of Adobe Reader from:
