Windows 7: Possible Redirect Virus? Need Urgent Help

Possible Redirect Virus? Need Urgent Help

I am certain that I have picked up a redirect virus in Internet Explorer 9 RC. It is not specifically pertaining to Google, but everything! In fact, I can no longer navigate to either yahoo or Google. However, Firefox and Google Chrome as well as Opera are working fine, for now. I have Bit Defender and Comodo Internet Security Premium, neither are picking up any viruses. I am at a total loss as to what to do . Any assistance will be greatly appreciated!

Let's flush the bad DNS entry and restore MS's Hosts file

Copy and paste these lines in Note pad.

@Echo on
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
shutdown -r -t 1
del %0

Save as flush.bat to your desktop. Right click to run as Administrator. Your computer will reboot itself.

Next, download DDS from one of these links:

Mirror 1 Mirror 2 Mirror 3
  • Disable any script blocking protection
  • Double click the dds icon to run the tool.
  • When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:
    1. DDS.txt
    2. Attach.txt <-- will be minimized in the task tray
  • Save both reports to your desktop.
Include the contents of both logs in your next reply.
