Windows 7: I must have a virus... no indication at all

I must have a virus... no indication at all

When I do a google, bing, etc search I get to choose sites, then it gets redirected to another site.
it all started when I wanted to download a kmp portable player ( i think )

thanks, I tried eset and it found nothing.
I googled via firefox and and found it may have been a hijack, I d/l HJ this and it would not run then said ( no permission ) I did a restore back to 10/31. all is well so far.

I'll be going back to my cloned drive from 10/3 in an hour. I've been playing with this HDD for a bit trying to do the Windows 7 test for 30days and some other things like qttab ( would not work ) and tried some media players ( my fav is MPC )

I'm rambling, let me do the reclone.

thanks garysgold for the quick response.

Have you specifically tried malware bytes?

Malwarebytes.org

install it


go to the update tab and check for updates

go to the scanner tab and choose full scan

I had the exact same thing happen to me. ComboFix solved it. Read this thread first, though.

Does it happen with only a specific browser?
Try a new browser like safari or chrome. And run a full scan using SUPERAntiSpyware.com | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!

Combofix should not be used unless you are being advised by a trained security advisor. It's a powerfull tool and it will cause a great deal of problems with your computer if you don't know what you're doing.

Also, it doesn't work with Windows 7.

You can use Smitfraudfix instead.
