Windows Security Center turns off... Looks like Bidvertiser

Post by fuad_hassan »

Hi. I need help.
My Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit laptop is infected with some virus/malware.

The Windows Security Center is turned off. If I start it from Services, it gets turned off immediately or after some time.
Clicking on Google search results randomly takes me to advertisement sites after a couple of automatic redirects. This does not happen all the time, but often. The first redirect normally goes to secure.bidvertiser.com/....

This infection is the result of my own unbelievable stupidity. Last Sunday I was looking for a calculator on google and opened some of the results in new tabs. One of these clicks directly downloaded a zip file which had a google_photography_rates.exe file in it. In spite of the knowing the obvious thing to do, I went ahead and installed the file. The installation file immediately disappeared and within minutes Microsoft Security Essentials and Windows Security Center shut down.

Since then I have done the following:
1. In safe mode, run TDSSKiller
2. Run Malware Bytes Anti-Malware as administrator (No infections found)
3. Run Spybot - Search & Destroy as administrator (removed 2 registry entries that disable Windows Security Center. But these registry values reappear automatically after some time even without a reboot.)
4. Run SUPERAntiSpyware Free Edition as administrator (removed a lot of tracking cookies)
5. Run Norton 360 (No infections found)
6. Run Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool (No infections found)
7. Run Rkill (results:
