Hello,
for about a week now I have been suffering from redirecting pages that go to random ads and my browser speed has been tremendously slow. Also, a few days ago when I tried accessing google using the Chrome browser it automatically redirected to the "google encrypted" search engine and I'm not sure why. Now when I try accessing google.com or gmail.com it shows me a "404 Not Found nginx" message. My friend is able to access these sites without a problem so I know it must be my computer. I am running Windows 7 on an hp pavilion dm4 laptop. Please let me know what I can do to fix this.
Thanks!

@ pedalpusher,

I have moved your post to its own topic here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic413770.html to avoid potential confusion for all concerned.

@ pinksunflower,

I see that MBAM has removed a proxy server. nginx is a proxy server itself. Are you still experiencing the redirects?

Hello,

I've been doing a bit of research on this and apparently this is caused by infected servers dishing out malware to the computers that retrieve content through the internet.

As near as I can determine thus far, it appears that stronger tools than are allowed in this forum are needed to remove the infection.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

Not always. Similar symptoms can have vastly different causes.
