maleware rvzr-a.akamaihd.net impossible to get rid of

every time I open a web page with Firefox I am either redirected to rvzr-a.akamaihd.net or am bombarded with ads that wants me to download an updated media player. I have worked with Avast support and even after de-installing and re-installing Firefox and rebooting with boot time scan and using CCclener and Malwarebytes to get rid of malware as well as removing lines of code from windows system32>drivers>>etx>host, the virus comes back. The only way to use Firefox is to restart Firefox in SAFE MODE.

See Remove rzvr malware

You can try also these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.


Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Hi Mike...which is the "step two" that worked for you?

UPDATE -- i tried TDSSKiller - AntiRootkit Utility and it appears that did the trick. What a relief!
