recently almost every link I click in Opera 10 opens in a new tab and often redirects to a spam site.

Additionally, I lost access to my work network drive at around the same time - unsure if the problem is related. I disconnected the drive but when I tried to remap it the path was not found. I have Internet access and my colleagues can connect as normal.

I ran gmer and it found MSIVXserv.sys - I googled that and used Avenger to delete is successfully. However, the problem remains.

please help!

Hi there,

Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running ComboFix tool:


Please ensure you read this guide carefully and install the Recovery Console first.

The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery (repair) mode. This allows us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware. It is a simple procedure that will only take a few moments of your time.

Once installed, you should see a blue screen prompt that says:

The Recovery Console was successfully installed.

Please continue as follows:
  1. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix, link
    Remember to re-enable them afterwards.

  2. Click Yes to allow ComboFix to continue scanning for malware.

When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.

Please include the following reports for further review, and so we may continue cleansing the system:

New dds.txt log.

A word of warning: Neither I nor sUBs are responsible for any damage you may have caused your machine by running ComboFix. This tool is not a toy and not for everyday use.

the combofix tool fixed the problem :)

I also noticed that it had changed the DNS address on my local area connection TCP/IP properties which is worrying...but all sorted now.

Glad to hear that. However, I'd like to see the requested logs to make sure all bad things got removed
