XP and ie explorer

Recommended Posts

Greetings and welcome. Please go to C:\Program Files\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and rename mbam.exe to something random and see if it will run, if so, then update it and do a quick scan and remove what it finds, reboot if necessary. If that does not work, then please refer to this post by AdvancedSetup and see if it helps: http://www.malwarebytes.org/forums/index.p...amp;#entry35969 If it works, then please read the instructions here: http://www.malwarebytes.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=2936 and post your logs in a new topic here: http://www.malwarebytes.org/forums/index.php?showforum=7

Please be sure not to install any software or use any removal/scanning tools exept those that you are instructed to by the expert who will be assisting you as doing so can make their job much more difficult. I hope I was helpful. Good luck and safe surfing.

Once you get this fixed, get Firefox... I haven't tested MBAM paid version yet (going to very shortly), so I don't know if it will protect you from those, but every time I get those redirects on Firefox, I just close the window and open a new window and I am never (at least yet) infected.

If the above recommendations don't help, one useful tool I found for a one-time run cleanup to help get some of the ickies out of the way (so other software such as MBAM can do their job) is called Dr Web CureIT from drweb.com. I have only recently discovered it, and it helped for one PC I was working on... so your results may vary. It will not protect you in the future, it is purely a scan only engine.
