Redirection of search results by googleadscentral.com in Suggestions Posted April 17, 2010 Thanks for the suggestion. I tried TDSS rootkit removing tool from Kaspersky Lab but it did not report any infection. However it led me to gmer and mbr.exe. gmer reported "rootkit-like behavior" in multiple sectors eg Disk \Device\Harddisk0\DR0 sector 00: rootkit-like behavior When I used the "copy" context menu on the reported item in gmer and saved it to a file on the hard disk Microsoft Security Essentials indentified it as Trojan:DOS/Sinowal.M I then ran "mbr.exe -f" but that did not resolve all of them. Then as instructed by mbr.exe I used Windows XP Recovery Console and fixmbr.exe to remove the remaining infections. Now firefox is running faster and I dont seem to have infected search results. I shall keep watching before I assure myself that the malware is gone for good.
