I have some kind of trojan or malware or something. When I open google.com in internet explorer I think I am being redirected to a bogus 'google security' page that claims i have spyware and tells me to download this security software. The first time this happened, I clicked the link and see something called XP Antivirus. I didn't download anything and closed out all browsers. After deleting all cookies and temporary ineternet files I still get this redirect page when I open any google page in my browser.

I have mcafee it does not find any problems. I tried Spybot S&D, AVG and Avast and they also found nothing.

Any help in how to proceed would be greatly appreciated!

still having the problem. Ran through the same sequence again to make sure I got it right and the SmitFraudFix scan and clean logs look the same as the previous. Does this mean I am doing something wrong?

For anyone experiencing this issue, it can be simply resolved by deleting all the google entries in your hosts file.

For win xp, the file is under c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

Open the hosts file with notepad and remove all the google entries. :thumbsup:
