Search Redirection - MB or AVG will not update

Recommended Posts

. If I access them from MY laptop (through shared folders), would I be subject to the virus too?

Shouldn't be, its not one of those that infects EVERYTHING on the computer ;)

We'll still try to fix it though :)

Okay, I'm stuck again. When you said "at the boot option" what did you mean exactly? I burned the CD. Restarted my computer and nothing happened. All of the files are on the CD though. There's one labeled Autorun and one labeled Boot. Should I click on one of those? Or, when I restart, am I supposed to push 1 or F1 or something. Is that the boot option? Or, is the CD supposed to kick in automatically? I'm confuzzled :blink:

Those are good instructions. I did okay up until the updating part and now I think it's frozen up on me. I'm going to give it a few more minutes but I'm pretty sure it's mad. Reading on, I didn't even have to update it b/c I had just downloaded it. If it stays frozen, any ideas? Should I do Ctrl+Alt+Del and try to restart that way?

It's running. One thing I changed was where it said "Action when Malware found" ... It was defaulted to "Log malware detections only" ... the instructions had to put it on "Repair infected files - Rename file is repair is not possible" ... the "Remove Suspicious Files" wasn't checkmarked so I didn't mark it but I wanted to! I set it to Repair infected files like it said.

Then, at the bottom, it says to run an antivirus to quarantine all the renamed files. I'll post the log when it finishes.

It finished. Shows 2 records, 0 suspect files and 1 warning. BUT, there's no button that says SAVE on it, so I can save a log. My screen doesn't look like the one on the instruction page. It's got the same info, pretty much, but doesn't look the same. There's no SAVE button though, only a button to start scanner. I tried right clicking to select all, copy and paste. Can't do that. It'll let me highlight it, but not copy.

Oh, who knows what I've done :o I started clicking on different tabs, like miscellaneous and others to see if there was a SAVE button somewhere else. I clicked on the update tab again and it froze AGAIN. Definitely something about that update tab. So, I rebooted, went into it again and I clicked on everything except the update tab. Nothing. I rebooted it again, just to see if maybe there was a log saved on the C drive or something. Forgot that I had set the BIOS to boot from the D drive, so it started going into the Avira boot again. I (stupidly) took the CD out!! It was a reflex I think, idk, temporary insanity maybe?? :blink: so then the computer came up that it couldn't start b/c of an error, or something like that. It asked me if I wanted it to run Startup Repair, and I thought, at this point, what could it hurt? So, it's doing that now ....

Don't worry about the log ;)

Now, reboot the computer, and please do the following (like before :)):

Please print out these instructions or copy them to a Notepad file for an easier reading and download MBRCheck by a_d_13 to your Desktop from one of these locations:




Close all opened programs/ windows and double-click on MBRCheck.exe.

It will produce a log file saved automatically on your Desktop as "MBRCheck_[Date]_[Time].txt".

Press the "Enter" key to close the MBRCheck window and post the contents of the log file.

I will do that but I just wanted to let you know that it took me forever to get the computer back to normal last night. It wouldn't boot right; it kept going into the system repair and did that 4 or 5 times before it finally came up right. Now, it's doing something else weird. I can't click on internet explorer or the library folder from the toolbar (or taskbar, or whatever is on the bottom of the desktop). It comes up something about a deleted registry key.

The way I got everything back to kind of normal was I went back to the beginning and ran the tdsskiller, and combofix. They didn't find anything though. I also ran malwarebytes (which updated okay) and it didn't find anything.

I did find on the control panel where it's got "create a system repair disc" .... I'm wondering if I should do that.

Let's try another rescue CD ;) :

These are links to Anti-virus vendors that offer free LiveCD or Rescue CD files that are used to boot from for repair of unbootable and damaged systems, rescue data, scan the system for virus infections. Burn it as an image to a disk to get a bootable CD. All (except Avira) are in the ISO Image file format. Avira uses an EXE that has built-in CD burning capability.

If you are not sure how to burn an image, please read How to write a CD/DVD image or ISO. If you need a FREE utility to burn the ISO image, download and use ImgBurn.

Let me know how it goes.

I've already tried the Kaspersky and the Avira Rescue CDS and they just made things worse. I only had one blank CD left and I used it to make the Windows 7 Repair Disc from my laptop. I can go out and get more CD's tomorrow but I don't think I'm going to have much luck with the CD's ;) They're starting to scare me. Is the computer that bad to need a rescue CD? That seems like a last step to me but idk. If so, would I just be better off to do a system recovery? The only symptom the computer has now is redirection.

Well, in a way the CD's are our last resort, due to the fact that you have an infected MBR and none of the usual fixes are working (partly because its Windows 7, and we have fewer tools to use on this operating system since its newer).

The problem with doing a system recovery is that the virus you have will actually survive the recovery, and you'll notice that you'll be infected all over again. If you want to do a reformat the hard drive (and reinstall Windows), you'll have to clear the MBR as well

Let me know if you still want to pursue cleaning your system, and I will inquire with some experts (far far greater knowledge than I) for some possible solutions ;)

If doing a recovery wouldn't fix it, I'll continue to try to fight this. I just thought that would be an easy fix since nothing seems to be helping. Should I follow the instructions on the link you gave to restore the MBR? It doesn't look hard. Or does that have to go along with a system recovery? Here I thought Windows 7 was harder to infect (or harder for it to spread) b/c it was 64 bit.

It has to go along with a reinstallation (reformat) of the operating system. System Recovery just rolls it back to a previous date, it doesn't totally start it over.

Let me know what you plan to do ;)

At least this computer still has another year's warranty on it!! ;) although I don't know if that covers viruses, malware, and stuff. Since it would survive a recovery and still be infected, let's try a few more things before I resort to recovery. Elise got me through a rootkit on my laptop a year or so ago but I don't remember her saying anything about an infected MBR.

What next? Should I keep trying the rescue CD's or is there something else? BTW, it's like you need a PhD for this crap, and I am silently cursing the idiots who create these infections!! LOL!!! :) Okay, enough ranting :)

Oh, another thing I thought of. Since I'm making these rescue CD's on an infected computer, could that have an affect? Should I make them on my computer or does that matter? Also, can I use DVD's to make them (b/c I'm currently out of CD's).

Yes, try another Rescue CD for now and I'll ask some of the experts around here for some suggestions. ;)

I'd say it shouldn't. As long as you remember to wipe the MBR (instructions are in that link I gave you earlier) you should be fine :)

Also, can I use DVD's to make them (b/c I'm currently out of CD's).

Depends. HP, for example, will require DVD's. Usually the program will tell you the requirements ;)
