Hey guys need some help ;)

I am working on a friends computer and he seems to be infected with a browser hijack virus of some sorts. His Google results will go to various other sites when he clicks on the link. Normally the first time he clicks a link it takes him to the desired site, but if he goes back to the results and clicks the same link again it gets redirected through various sites and finally lands somewhere different.

say he clicked on www,luxuryexplorer.com/ form google the first time he will get www,luxuryexplorer.com/ but the second time it will go to a site like this http::///clickover.cn/ < DO NOT CLICK THAT LINK - MAY NOT BE SAFE

Anyway i have ran every scanner under the sun. Malwarebytes, Spyware Dr, Rouge Remover, Super Anti Spyware and Bitdefender Deep scan. I cannot pick this bugger up.

Any suggestions :thumbsup:

Any suggestions

Hi;yep, a few to start with :flowers:

What is the OS please and (hopefully !) the installed Resident Antivirus program


Maybe to start with fully update the Malwarebytes and Superantispyware programs already on board;

> reboot into safe mode to run a full deep scan with Superantispyware..
>>reboot into Normal mode to run a full deep scan with Malwarebytes ..

then let us see the reports from both those scans to see what might be going on :thumbsup:
