Any recomended programs to remove this malware.(B00kmarks 7search)... Malewareabytes,Spybot,Trojan Remover find no problem.AVG Antivirus finds nothing.

RE: google redirecting to B00kmarks.

1. Download ComboFix onto a USB flash drive or onto computer.
2. Boot into SAFE MODE or regular mode (if required) and uninstall your anti-virus software. Yes - remove it. Reboot.
3. Clean out temp files and registry with CCleaner. Save before making registry changes each time until no more errors.
4. Reboot computer in Safe Mode with networking (hopefully you can attach the PC to a wired/ethernet connection vs. wireless because some wireless will not work in safe mode and you NEED internet).
5. Launch combofix and allow it to do its thing. Follow screen prompts and do what it says to do/NOT to do.
6. When computer has restarted for the last time, check things out.
7. Turn OFF system restore to flush out anything left
8. Reinstall anti-virus and MalwareByte's Anti-Malware. Run a full scan using each (at different times) and see if things are clean.
9. Turn System Restore ON.

Fair warning: Combofix will hose a few computers out of every hundred or so. Not likely, but possible.

RE: google redirecting to B00kmarks.

Thanks man. I'll try and let you know.

RE: google redirecting to B00kmarks.

On second thought, before running combofix, how do you know it's actually malware and not some setting or malfunction within Firefox?

Does it happen in IE?

I can't find anything on the internet like that. If that was malware, it wouldn't be any good to the producer. They want to take you to THEIR site of choice, not your bookmarks.

RE: google redirecting to B00kmarks.

It is a XP CPU running IE8. She had her antivirus expire and left it go. She told me that everytime she Googles it takes her somewhere else. I verified. Sometime to B00kmarks.com sometimes to search7.com. I checked LAN settings in IE settings to make sure proxy server wasn't set, I ran cleanup to arase temp files and ran Trojan Remover,Malewareabytes, and Spybot , removed old Antivirus and installed AVG ,all found nothing. If I type the URL out I get website under construction or website not reachable.

Its not my bookmarks its a B00kmarks.com website.


RE: google redirecting to B00kmarks.

Not sure of the websites posted in link so I wanted to run it by tek-tips forum first.

RE: google redirecting to B00kmarks.

I thought it went to one of HER BOOKMARKS. Yeah, sounds virus-y then. Do what I suggested.

RE: google redirecting to B00kmarks.

Thanks for the help.
ComboFix kept seeing my antivirus even after it was uninstalled completely and scared the crap out of me. I didn't feel like reinstalling software so I keep looking and found the following software link for "TDS SKiller"

fixed the problem in 2 minutes.

RE: google redirecting to B00kmarks.

Forgot to mention this also had something to do with the dreaded "just in time debug maleware" the program fixed everything.

RE: google redirecting to B00kmarks.

Normally I recommend TDSSKiller before Combofix. Not sure why I didn't this time.
