I have been attempting to get rid of this search engine redirect virus to no avail. I have tried several anti-virus programs (Ad-Aware, AVG Free etc), without success. Every time I search via Google, Yahoo etc and then click on a search result, I am redirected to various other sites, with each site including a banner for Vimax male 'enlargement'!

My laptop has also frozen/crashed on a number of occasions.

Having taken some advice from other threads on DaniWeb, I still can't seem to get rid of the problem. Can anyone direct me towards a solution?? It would be hugely appreciated.

Here are the results of the various scans I have completed:

You say nothing of running MBA-M so please do the following:
Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBA-M) to your Desktop.

* DoubleClick mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install MBA-M.
* Be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When MBA-M finishes, Notepad will open with the log. Please save it where you can find it easily. The log can also be opened by going to Start > All Programs > Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware > Logs > log-date.txt.

Reboot the computer

Run a new HJT scan and post back with the MBA-M log and the HJT log.

Thanks very much fr your reply.
I have downloaded and installed Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware, however the program will not open! Is there another Anti-Malware programme I can try?

0

See if this works:
Please navigate to the MBAM folder located in the Program Files directory.

Locate MBAM.exe and rename it to winlogon.exe
Once renamed double click on the file to open MBAM and select Full Scan

At the end of the scan allow MBAM to remove what it had found then reboot.

Having followed your advice, below are the 2 files from MBA-M log and the HJT log. Any further suggestions?
Thanks

Any further suggestions?

Yes, now you are going to have to go back and run both programs correctly.
Your HiJackThis was run BEFORE MBA-M and not AFTER as it should have been, or else you have only re-posted the original HJT log, I don't know which, but it IS the same log you originally posted. We need a NEW scan done AFTER the fixes are completed with MBA-M

HiJackThis was run at 16:04
MBA-M was run at 20:17:24

MBA-M issue #1, was not updated. Your database version shows as 2551 and the current database is 2700
MBA-M issue #2 the log clearly shows that there was No action taken. on any of the items found.

You need to follow directions exactly. Run MBA-M again, Update it first.
Then Run a Full Scan with it.
* When the scan is complete
* Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.

Reboot the computer

Then run a NEW HiJackThis scan, save the log and please copy/past both logs here. Do not attach them.

Any ideas on what to do next?

I see parts of two anti-virus programs on the computer. AVG8 which seems to actually be your anti-virus program and left over files from a Norton/Symantec program removed incorrectly I would imagine.
You need to go to Add/Remove and Uninstall EVERYTHING you find with either Norton or Symantec listed on it.
Once you have done that then go to Start, Search, Files and Folders and be sure to also use Advanced Options there to also search in System Folders, Hidden Files and Folders and Sub Folders.
Search first for Symantec. Once the search is complete DELETE all that is found. Then do it again for all items named Norton. Once the search is complete then Delete ALL that is found.
Reboot the computer.

Next Run HJT again. Place check marks next to the following listings if they remain:
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyServer = socks=
R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings,ProxyOverride = plimus.com,http://www.plimus.com,regnow.com,www...w.com,;*.local

O23 - Service: Windows MSI - Unknown owner - \\?\globalrootC:\WINDOWS\system32\msihost.exe (file missing)

Once you have placed the check marks then click the Fix Checked button. Exit HJT.
Reboot the computer and run a new HJT scan and post back with the log and tell me how the computer is running.

I've followed all of the steps mentioned above, having deleted all of the Norton and Symantec on the laptop and run the HJT scan, 'fixing' the items listed. I then rebooted the computer and the new HJT scan is below.

The computer seems to be running 'ok'. It's still a bit slower than normal, but has not frozen/crashed since. Also, the redirecting that was happening to all of my internet searches seems to have been fixed. Thanks heaps jholland!

**Also, I've got AVG Free and Avira Antivir running on my laptop. Should I delete one/both of these anti-virus programs?**

**Also, I've got AVG Free and Avira Antivir running on my laptop. Should I delete one/both of these anti-virus programs?**

Where the heck did Avira come from? It wasn't there before.
If it were MY computer I would go with Avira, in fact I do. I have used AVG and didn't like it, mainly because it doesn't do as good a job as Avira, at least I don't believe it does, plus it is loaded with "bloat". Take a look in your log and see how many AVG processes are there.
If you do decide to go with Avira uninstall AVG through the normal means. Then download and run the AVG Removal Tool to be certain all is gone.
Reboot and run a new HJT log and post that back here.

More good advice. I've removed AVG and followed all of the suggested steps.
The latest HJT log is here below.
*Any further suggestions with regards to keeping virus' off, or should Avira do it all for me?*
THANKS

I would recommend that you also install SpywareBlaster. It is a FREE program which will protect your computer against:
Spyware, adware, browser hijackers, and dialers, prevent the installation of ActiveX-based spyware, block spying / tracking via cookies and restrict the actions of potentially unwanted or dangerous web sites.
Download, install, update ENABLE ALL protection and CLOSE the program. It doesn't run in the background. Check for updates weekly, doesn't always have them but when it does just enable all protection again and close the program.
Keep MBA-M and update and scan with it weekly, removing anything it finds.

Other than that if you feel all is working well you can also set a new, clean Restore point.
To do this Right Click My computer.
Choose Properties
When System Properties opens choose the System Restore Tab.
Place a check mark in Shut down System Restore.
You will probably get a message telling you it will be shut down, click ok or yes.
Allow it to shut down.
Wait a moment. Then go back in and take that check mark Out so that System Restore will turn back on.
Other than that you are good to go and if you agree you can mark this one solved.
