Windows 7: Happili redirect

21 Apr 2012   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
Happili redirect

So my google searches sometimes (but not always) redirect to Happili pages instead. I followed the directions in this thread, but a few hours later, it happened again. So it must not be cleared all the way.

The first log is from ComboFix. You'll see that I didn't manage to disable AVG all the way. I disabled the resident shield as directed, then tried to run ComboFix, and got the error that AVG wasn't properly disabled. So I doublechecked the directions, and realized I hadn't turned off the email scanners. Then ComboFix said something like "you dumbass, you still didn't get all the components turned off, I'm going to run anyway so good luck." with no option to go back and turn anything else off before running.

ComboFix found one problem, ESET found none. I then cleaned out temp files, uninstalled ComboFix, and patched programs with Secunia. So I was hoping I was done, but no luck.

Other ideas?

This can be a bugger to get rid of. This is a very long thread, but it might help you clean your computer.

It is my understanding that a full check with the lowly Windows Defender shall remove all traces of Happili Virus from any Desktop/Laptop. So why go anywhere else.

Notifying Jacee of this thread. Such a tricky infection is best tackled with an expert's guidance, and the steps can vary from computer to computer/infection to infection. Zelanie, Jacee is one of our malware removal experts
In the meantime, do not try to get rid of the virus on your own, and do not do any e-banking or other confidential activities on your infected computer.
