Google returns a link to Antivius 2009 as if it were our website's link.

If you enter our domain's url into a web browser address bar, you are taken to our website just fine. No problem. :thumbsup:

However, if you enter our domain name into a Google search, Google returns our website as the #1 site (as it should), but if you click on this link you are taken given an Antivirus 2009 message warning about being infected, and then all &($# breaks loose.

Popups that are hard to close and redirects to Antivirus 2009 website and warnings start to appear faster than you can say "I've been Hacked". You can't close the windows and popups fast enough. Our antivirus software pops up and says that it found a trojan-virus being downloaded, and it blocks it (than you Kaspersky!). What a mess. So...needless to say, I have a few questions to ask:

How can Google allow this to happen?

What has happened in the first place?

How do I fix it?

How do I prevent it?

Any help from you masters of Internet would be greatly appreciated.

I doubt google has been hacked, you are simply being redirected by a malware infection


Run a scan with MBAM and post the log please

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
