Kaspersky’s TDSSKiller

I read an article about this utility in PCWorld’s April 2012 issue. The timing was good because I had a computer that I had removed some malware from with Malwarebytes and AVG, but the browser was still occasionally being redirected. I was going to reload the computer, but when I ran across this article I figured I’d give the utility a try. I downloaded the TDSSKiller utility from here. It was a small zip file containing the utility and a EULA document. I extracted the utility to the desktop, ran it, and clicked Start Scan. After several seconds the utility found a rootkit and said I had to restart to remove it. I restarted the computer and ran another scan and this time nothing was found. If you have a browser hijaaking problem you can’t solve, try Kaspersky’s TDSSKiller and see if it helps.
