Infection date and initial symptoms
Few weeks ago. Some pages were redirected via many mostly chinese pages to pages with chinese recipes. It was possible to go back to originally required page.
Current issues and symptoms
Instead of chinese recipes blank pages occurs after redirections. No possible way back to see required page.
Avast antivirus doesnt run and cannot be started. (I dont know, if it is caused by malware problem)
Steps taken in order to remove the infection
I tried to fix it with Kaspersky rescue usb. Almost no effect (for a while it returned to recipes, then again got worse - blank pages)

Hello,



They call me TwinHeadedEagle around here, and I'll be working with you.



Before we start please read and note the following:
  • At the top of your post, please click on the "Watch thread" button and make sure to check Watch this thread...and receive email notifications. This will send an email to you as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing me to solve your problem faster.
  • Please do not install any new software during the cleaning process other than the tools I provide for you. This can hinder the cleaning process. Please do not perform System Restore or any other restore.
  • Instructions I give to you are very simple and made for complete beginner to follow. That's why you need to read through my instructions carefully and completely before executing them.
  • Please do not run any tools other than the ones I ask you to, when I ask you to. Some of these tools can be very dangerous if used improperly. Also, if you use a tool that I have not requested you use, it can cause false positives, thereby delaying the complete cleaning of your machine.
  • All tools we use here are completely clean and do not contain any malware. If your antivirus detects them as malicious, please disable your antivirus and then continue.
  • If during the process you run across anything that is not in my instructions, please stop and ask. If any tool is running too much time (few hours), please stop and inform me.
  • I visit forum several times at day, making sure to respond to everyone's topic as fast as possible. But bear in mind that I have private life like everyone and I cannot be here 24/7. So please be patient with me. Also, some infections require less, and some more time to be removed completely, so bear this in mind and be patient.
  • Please stay with me until the end of all steps and procedures and I declare your system clean. Just because there is a lack of symptoms does not indicate a clean machine. If you solved your problem yourself, set aside two minutes to let me know.
  • Please attach all report using
    button below. Doing this, you make it easier for me to analyze and fix your problem.

  • Do not ask for help for your business PC. Companies are making revenue via computers, so it is good thing to pay for the repair.

Well, I tried to run ZOEK, but in the middle of the scan the computer shut down and now I am unable to run Windows at all...

Computer shuts down in the middle of the starting process. After it happened for the first time, Windows are starting in some recovery mode, but the result is the same. Computer shuts down.

I did not do anything special but I tried to start the Windows again, and it is now running. First it went through recovery mode, then started normally and seems OK. Should I run ZOEK again?

Now it seems to be happening only in Firefox. Originally it affected also Internet Explorer and Chrome.

I tried to, but it seems nothing to be happening when I press the reset button. I hold it for minute or two, but there is no reaction.

No, it did not restart. The fact is, that the router is old and I already thought about buying new. Maybe this is the right moment...
