Windows 10: Google redirection localhost.world
So, I am going through the thread, and noting everything that has been run by people infected with this:
Comodo Rescue Disk
Resetting all browsers/Flushing DNS
Yes, I have info on how to report this to the AVs.
Looks like it did show up on Rkill but looked meaningless

So RKILL temporarily stopped it, but everything goes back to status quo upon reboot. And because it's disguised as Acrobat update, it wasn't flagged by any of the AVs or other scanners.
@mixolyd Now that you are clean, I would recommend running CryptoPrevent on your system. This program was originally written to prevent encryption infections, but also includes protection for a whole host of other infections as well. It works by setting Group Policies, preventing malware from running executables from typical places such as the App Data folder. There's a free version, which you run once, set the protection, and then occasionally manually update.
Thank you very much for your efforts!
Will do. Thanks!

Many thanks to @moraleja39 for the investigative work!
I wonder if this is related or not...
I don't think so, as TDSSKiller was run and did nothing on one infected system.

Hi, since yesterday my Hyper-V stoped work.
I have no clue of whats going on.
I tried to uninstall and install it again, but didn't work.
Does someone knows how to purge hyper-v configuration when remove/uninstall it? Because it seems...
This is aimed at Win 8, but should be the same for 10
As some of us have found out, modern apps such as Edge are not allowed to send network traffic to the local host, so things like media servers and routers do not work
