I have a machine that will not load google.com at all and has issues with running searches on Bing.com and Yahoo.com. I run Microsoft Forefront Security on the machine, but there are no virus' found.

I have a scary feeling this is something along the lines of the google redirect malware.

If you can offer any help in the matter it will be greatly appreciated.

Open up command prompt (start -> run -> type "cmd" and press enter) and enter the following commands in this order:

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

Once done, clear your history and cache in your browser (firefox/ie) and try to load google.com. If that doesn't work, are you able to access Google by going to http://74.125.227.132/ ?

From researching, it appears that the "87.125.87.103" IP that you're getting returned when ping'ing google may be due to malware that was removed from your PC (since you are not complaining about redirects/popup's your anti-virus probably "fixed" the virus problem, but it still left traces behind).

Your host files does not appear to have been hijacked, which is a good thing. But 87.125.87.103 does not appear to be a valid Google IP.

I followed your steps and tried to load google.com but was given the good old Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage.

I am able to access http://74.125.227.132/ so I'm thinking that there is some nasty malware residue blocking the google.com ip request.

Thoughts/suggestions from here?

Go to command prompt and type the following command without quotes:

"nslookup www.google.com"

It should give you an output similar to the following:

C:\Users\Matt>nslookup www.google.com
Server: Router1
Address: 192.168.2.1

Non-authoritative answer:
Name: www.l.google.com
Addresses: 74.125.227.82
74.125.227.81
74.125.227.83
74.125.227.84
74.125.227.80

Aliases: www.google.com


What IP addresses are listed under "Addresses:" for www.google.com (the bolded area) ?


Also, I noticed that you have a default gateway of 192.168.0.1 but your primary DNS server is 192.168.0.10. Are you running your own DNS server? Is this an apartment complex or something similar? If so, I think it's a problem with the DNS server itself.

Any time I have had issues like this on our client's computers, I have had great success fixing it by running TDSSKiller. It's a free download, simple to use and scans very quickly for any issues.

Helo. If TDSS found and fixed things I'd suggest two more scans.

Please download aswMBR ( 511KB ) to your desktop.
  • Double click the aswMBR.exe icon to run it
  • Click the Scan button to start the scan
  • On completion of the scan, click the save log button, save it to your desktop and post it in your next reply.

AND

I'd like us to scan your machine with ESET OnlineScan
  • Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    • Click on Posted Image to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.
  • Check Posted Image
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  • Under scan settings, check Posted Image and check Remove found threats
  • Click Advanced settings and select the following:
    • Scan potentially unwanted applications
    • Scan for potentially unsafe applications
    • Enable Anti-Stealth technology
  • ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  • When the scan completes, push Posted Image
  • Push Posted Image, and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  • Push the Posted Image button.
  • Push Posted Image


NOTE: In some instances if no malware is found there will be no log produced.

Glad to hear that cleared up your issue. Boopme is right, since TDSS found something, I would run additional scans to look for any other items.
