Windows 7: google redirects


25 Nov 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP 1
 
 
google redirects

i don't know when it started, but google's been getting redirected to cr0zybaner.com more often than it's been going to the intended link. just today it got redirected to hornymatches.com
here's my most recent hijackthis log, if it helps:

Hi,

This behavior is normally a result of a malware infection. I would run a full system scan using Malwarebytes and see if anything comes up. You may then need to look at the following tutorial.

There are several instances of loader_62.exe in that log, which appears to be malware as per this page.

HELPHELP.EXE - Trojan.Agent/Gen-OnlineGames | SUPERAntiSpyware

Run MBAM (I see its installed on your computer) and perhaps also free Superantispyware.

Also, run CCleaner and clean out the temp files.

It could also be the google redirect virus. Go through the steps on this page (in addition to cleaning with MBAM etc.).

Did you run through the steps in the google redirect virus link in my previous post?

Post a screenshot of your hosts file and msconfig startup tab.

That msconfig frightens me, your boot time should be like half a day.

Frankly, I have no idea of some of the entries there so i'll just point them and you should know what they are - launcherlauncher, cojbiblauncher, ae___, Project1. Can you identify the valid programs associated with these entries? If yes, are they necessary to startup with? If no, uncheck the entries in msconfig, reboot.

As for the hosts file, what ip address is that? Mine reads like this:
Quote:

# Copyright (c) 1993-2006 Microsoft Corp.
#
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
#
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
#
# For example:
#
# 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
# 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host
127.0.0.1 localhost
::1 localhost
