Firefox redirection and new tab popups adware sites

10 posts in this topic

I have Malwarebytes, SUPERAntiSpyware, Spybot Search and Destroy, SpywareBlaster installed, updated, and scanned and immunized and the whole nine yards but the problem keeps happening.

Everytime I scan, it picks up the Adware Tracking Cookie, deletes but they keep coming back.

I did a full uninstall and new install of Mozilla Firefox, but it is still happening.

Please tell me whats the next step to do, thank you.

Sounds like a self-replicating malware.

Try installing Emsisoft Anti-malware & Hitman Pro 3... both apps have a 30 day trial.

Emsisoft Anti-malware - http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/download/

Hitman Pro 3 - http://www.surfright.nl/en/hitmanpro

It might be a rootkit in the MBR, so if the 2 apps I mentioned above don't do the trick try RootkitBuster by TrendMicro :

http://free.antivirus.com/rootkit-buster/

I have used all of these as well as the apps that you mentioned above and I find them all to be quite useful & effective.

Install all of them in normal mode of Windows and update them all, then reboot into safe mode to run them.

Rootkit buster does not support 64bit systems. Is there another program?

The Sophos anti root kit doesn't pick up anything bad.

I scanned Hitman and Emisoft both in safemode network and it deleted cookies and trojans but however I am still getting the random popup in my tabs, and most importantly, whenever I click a link in google search engine, it redirects me to an advertised site,

Also, this might help but when I scanned with Hitman, it said

I have a TDL3 (Alureon) rootkit.. but how can I remove that.

That's more than likely your problem... the Hitman detection of that rootkit should remove it after the scan completes.

You just have to follow through after the scan finishes and click next to remove the items detected.

They're just cookies, it's nothing to worry about.
