Hi there. I'm new to this forum and it was brought to my attention via searching for help. Looks like a great source for answers
Back in January a member by the name of sundavis helped out zigzag8336. I believe i have the same problem with malware. I thought i had gotten rid of my malware problems earlier but i don't think i removed it all.
As soon as i tried to update i was unable to connect to the website or i was redirected to Google search engine. While reading this previous post form January i figured that who ever was going to help me needed my specifics and i couldn't base it off of someone else. I'm hoping that sundavis could help me with my similar situation or someone else from the bleeping computer team.
I also have a problem with getting kicked from the internet, this will happen hours after i turn the computer on. I will open my browser and find I'm not able to connect to any site, but my network says I'm still connected PLEASE HELP.
I'm going to paste the problem back from January because he describes the situation a bit better.
"When I try to go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
, I am redirected to google.com
Also, when I use a search engine, sometimes the results redirect to other search engines, but when I type the address in manually it goes directly to the correct site. It only does this with certain search results though, not all, and http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
always redirects to google.com no matter if I search for it or if I type it in manually.
The main problem I have though, is that I cant download anything from microsoft.com. I click the link, it opens a new window and tries to connect to download.microsoft.com, then I get a page cannot be displayed error."
