Windows 7: Suspected Malware - started with BigSeekPro - can't access Google!

14 Sep 2013   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64Bit
Suspected Malware - started with BigSeekPro - can't access Google!

A friend has asked me to take a look at her son's laptop. She had tried to do some things to fix it before she gave it to me so unsure what it's original state was.

She believes it had something to do with Big Seek Pro - seems to be a common malware tool from what I can find. There was no trace of Big Seek Pro on the laptop, but the default search engine pointed towards their website.

The symptoms are odd - I can access the internet. But not all of it! If I try to go to I get the message "Apache is functioning normally". I can get to Webcrawler ok & other sites such as this.

This is the same in both IE & Chrome.

I've run Avast which has come up clean. Malwarebytes also came up clean.

Currently running ESET on-line scanner but that is showing no results either.

Has anyone got an ideas or additional tools I can use to see if I can figure this out?

See if this helps...

Take a look at this guide and perform all the steps up to and including running Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM):

Remove Homepage (Uninstall Guide)

When you are done running Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, a report opens in Notepad.

Please provide the contents of the MBAM report in your reply.

Also provide the report produced by AdwCleaner.

Will take a look at it and see what we need to do next.

Thanks for the reply.

Forgot to mention - I am also unable to access internet options through IE - can access it through Control Panel though.

Followed all those steps. MBAM & AdwCleaner reports below:
