Google Redirect - McAfee/MBAM won't scan

Recommended Posts

OK, downloaded and installed IE8. Ran Windows Update and installed all critical updates.

System seems to be working OK now.

Should I run another online scan now to be sure? Also, can you recommend any free virus software for the system? I was thinking of Comodo but I haven't seen it mentioned in this forum.

I use MSE along with MBAM Pro and haven't had any issues.

Only run one Anti-Virus at a time.

Use an AntiVirus Software - Choose only one - More than one will conflict. It is very important that your computer has anti-virus software running to protect against viruses. Update Antivirus prior to manual scans as necessary or as used. Please only choose one, having more than one can cause problems, such as crashes and your computer to slow down.

Are there any specific steps I need to do to clean up the tools we used or do I just delete them all?

If you still have combofix, do this.

The others just delete.

The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:

For XP:

  • Click START run
  • Now type ComboFix /Uninstall in the runbox and click OK. Note the space between the X and the /, it needs to be there.

For Vista / Windows 7

  • Click START Search
  • Now type ComboFix /Uninstall in the runbox and click OK. Note the space between the X and the /, it needs to be there.

If you used DeFogger

To re-enable your Emulation drivers, double click DeFogger to run the tool.

  • The application window will appear
  • Click the Re-enable button to re-enable your CD Emulation drivers
  • Click Yes to continue
  • A 'Finished!' message will appear
  • Click OK
  • DeFogger will now ask to reboot the machine - click OK

IMPORTANT! If you receive an error message while running DeFogger, please post the log defogger_enable which will appear on your desktop.

Your Emulation drivers are now re-enabled.

Ran ComboFix uninstall.

DeFogger did not ask for a reboot so I performed one manually.

Thanks for all you help!

I realize this was a long process, (180+ posts) and I appreciate your patience. Sorry we couldn't find a specific cause for the connectivity issue but I'm glad the repair install of Windows seems to have done the trick.

Thanks again!
