Hi, my PC has been infected by this malware, which has changed my home page to searchqu.com/406 and which slows down my computer. It is resistant to Avast, Malwarebytes Superantispyware and other programs that I have tried. I have read that it is unlikely to harm any files but I could not find out whether it might be able to steal any passwords or use my email account etc. In fact I could not find out what it does at all apart from changing my home page. I have done the OTL scan but I had to scan it twice (the first time I had changed the file age from 30 days to 7days because the infection occurred yesterday, when I read that I should not change any settings, a note which comes right after Click the scan button.) Unfortunately the second scan produced only one text document which I have attached. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Please do the following:

Please download aswMBR ( 511KB ) to your desktop.
  • Double click the aswMBR.exe icon to run it
  • Click the Scan button to start the scan
  • On completion of the scan, click the save log button, save it to your desktop and post it in your next reply.

The latest update of SuperAntiSpyware (freeware) has detected it and seems to have eliminated it. Thanks.
