Some sort of malware is causing all my search engines to redirect me. Whenever I click on a link in a search engine, it opens a new tab and redirects me to one of a long list of search engines like couponmountain, buyerzone, bestwebchoices, pronto, etc. I've run a few things that I've found in old forums but none of it has worked. I'll include a hijackthis log.

Reboot into 'safe mode' and perform a free online virus/malware scan.
Trend Micro:
housecall.trendmicro.com (this one will give option to remove infections)
Symantec:
security.symantec.com (this one you have to take note of where the infections are and go delete them yourself)
Note: You may want to scan and if infections are found turn off system restore (or the infections will never go away) or just turn it off and then scan, the down side to this is that if you turn off system restore all of your restore points get removed and you have no way to roll your system files back in time. The best solution is to see if you have infections, then disable system restore.
To disable system restore, right click 'My Computer' select 'Properties' locate the 'System Restore' tab, check the box that states "Turn off system restore on all drives".
Good luck! :)

Absolutely do not turn system restore off before your PC is cleaned.

Should things go wrong, it is better to be able to restore to an infected point rather than not be able to restore at all.

Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to your desktop.

* Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
* At the end, be sure to checkmark the 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 completed, a log will open in Notepad.
* Post the log back here.

Make sure that you restart the computer.

Once done, post a fresh HJT log too.

For whatever reason malwarebyte isn't working. I download it and it installs, though it does take forever, and then it won't open the program.

download and run Spybot search and destroy. I had this exact same problem a few months back and I got rid of it with spybot. Also I dl'ed and ran a 1 click maintenance of Glary utilities and I was back to running like a new machine.

PS. Can't remember if this is the time I also noticed that the proxy settings for Internet Explorer and Firefox were also changed. So check them when you are finished your scans

Hope this helps

ok, I rebooted and everything seems to be working ok. I'm not getting redirected anymore. If there's anything out of place in the logs, tell me what I should do, otherwise it seems to be fixed.
Thanks everyone!

Did you do a full scan with Mbam?
The reason I ask is because of the time index on your 2 logs.

Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2
Scan saved at 1:44:40 AM, on 8/4/2009

They are only 3 minutes apart. Mbam should take about an hour to do a full scan.

0

yeah, the reason the scans are only 3 minutes apart is cause I did the MBAM scan first and the log printed at 1:41 and then I did a hijackthis scan which only took a minute.
And I did download spybot and it won't run scans, it's open in the tray but it won't open the program itself.
And I restarted the computer and went to bed after I ran those scans last night and when I got up this morning the problem was back and I was getting the error message that the system had just recovered from a serious error. Then it started restarting itself over and over again. I'm at a loss

Cool. Could you do 1 more quick scan with Mbam and post it's log. I want to make sure none of what it found has re-asserted itself.

I was worried that something may have survived and it has.
I have done some research on it and most sites recommend a change of all passwords and a format to remove the nasty.

0

Yeah I clicked to fix after I asked for the log file and with the uacint.dll file it said it would be removed on restarting. And what do you mean, changing passwords and a format?

0

I mean changing all passwords for any online accounts that could be exploited by criminals in any way. The infection you have is designed to steal information.

Formatting means wiping the PC and starting from scratch.
