We presently have a computer in for repair which was infected with GT Antivirus malware. We have managed to remove the infection except for a redirect issue. If we test the internet connection for more than 10 secondsm surfing around, a redirect page will pop up with this address http://website-stoplist.com. I have searched the lmhost files and also host files for any mention of this and cannot find any reference. Any help or advice would be great. Thanks

Check the Connections tab in Internet Options in Control Panel as well. Check the LAN settings. Sometimes even if the hosts files are clean, this can still have incorrect settings. I have done this when I have had misdirection issues like this with malware.

Hi.
Run these scanners if not already done

Run TdssKiller and Hitmanpro.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Ran tddskiller and it found 1 rootkit in the MBR, rebooted and removed instance. This seems to have resolved the issue. Only found one regkey from the list collins23, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\EVA246.
Thanks for all the advice.

I have the exact same issue on a computer. I ran the TdssKiller and it found 1 error. After choosing to fix it and restart, the computer will not boot into Windows, it keeps taking me to the Windows Startup Repair which says it cannot fix the problem. Thoughts?
