site redirection after deleting trojan

  suzie005 14:33 19 Dec 2006

first time i've had this particular problem.

i had downloader ruin on the system that AVG found.thought i'd got rid but for some reason it kept coming back.i'd run adaware/spybot as well and last nite for almost 3 hrs i ran i'm finding that my google searches dont take me to the actual site but to another search engine.only way of going direct to the site is to copy/paste into address bar.i've no idea what's going on or how to fix the problem cos i am apparently clear of infection.

Try renaming your HOSTS file, it's in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC. Rename it as OLDHOSTS. Reboot your computer and see if the problem is cleared. If it is, then look in the file to see if you can find the offending line and deleting it. If renaming the HOSTS file doesn't help, you can easily change it back.

It sounds as if something is still there. Download HijackThis from: click here

Double-click to install (follow the prompts). Open the program and click on the "Do a system scan and save a log file" button.
