Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
I had Sysinternals Antivirus download and Malwarebytes found and removed it. However a lingering problem exists about redirect. Even with my browser closed Malwarebytes still shows that it is blocking attempts to contact my computer. Is is about 4 or 5 websites that seem to be blocked.
There also appears to be a false proxy being installed in the registry which after being removed from the registry is brought back on reboot.
Any suggestions please!
U have to clean up ur registry, becuase registry is the main part of windows, windows crashes when there are errors in reigtry , u can use software tolls to clean up ur registry , reginout is a gud choice

Well it is quite obvious however.
I ll include manual removal instructions. Please follow the steps carefully.
There will be 2 executable files which are Sysinternals Antivirus.exe and svchost.exe. Svchost is invoked by the other executable. There may be another one named alggui.exe
You have to kill these two processes. First of all you have to do this:
We have to set some additional things in order to see the Hidden and System files which are protected.
Alternative way if Hidden files and folders are now shown

There is only one application I would recommend in a situation like this: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, available here. (The installer is 3.7 MB, if you can send that great.) It has been proven over and over, and is one of the standard tools in use at many of the malware removal forums. I recommend your friend attempt to follow at least the first four steps of these malware removal protocols.
The preliminary steps will help to safeguard his system, and speed the scan. If he can't install MBAM for some reason, he can rename the installer and/or the mbam.exe file to get it to run.
Other good forums for help with malware are here, here, and here.
If the preliminary cleaning does not remove the malware, I suggest he open a thread at one of those forums and request guided expert assistance. With supervision, there are other tools that can work to remove insidious rootkits, etc. It sounds like he has some kind of browser hijacker, but it's hard to say what else. In any event, Erunt & MBAM is a good place to start. Tell him also to set a system restore point, but to use Erunt to do a full registry backup before he starts changing things, just in case he needs to revert back for some reason...
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Testimonial: "Perfect answer. Thank you!"
It's because your system doesn't have the right time and date. Make sure that you have the right time zone and the automatic daylight change option activated as well, also check if your computer is on sync with an internet server, to do that just double click on the clock and a window will pop there you can do all those changes.
