Google Redirect virus RRS feed

  • Pergunta

  • I've started to see this in the last weeks or so. Search engines are re-directed to 3rd party sites, and searching for a cure reveals HUNDREDS of sites offering answers that require payment; Almost all of these sites are NOT main line relible sites, and many have weird names not relating to anti spyware.  Microsoft Securityseibly  Essentials was supposedly updated to fix this, but it is NOT working. Malwarebytes, AntiSuperspy, Search and Destroy, hitman Pro have all failed to remove the infection. Combofix, when downloaded, insists it is corrupt; The virus has either mutated or been re-written. The computer is really useless as all or most searchs results in redirects.


    HELP!! In  20 years of repairing computers I have never run into anything as bad as this!!
