My computer is infected with the Google Redirect Virus. Tried using the following programs in normal and safe modes, but they are not coming up with any infections: AVG, SuperAntiSpyware, Lavasoft Ad-Aware, A Squared Online Malware Scanner, Spybot, Megabytes AntiMalware, Combofix...

Ran Spydoctor--only have the free scan version not paid removal version--and it came up with: Application.NirCmd (89 infections), Rootkit.Agent.EX (2 infections).

Hijackthis appears normal.

Anyway to manually remove the virus? Please, please, please help

I just want to make sure I am understanding you here. You ran ALL of those scans and the only on that says there is an infection is the one you have to BUY? Things that make you go Hmmmm.... LOL

What exactly is your computer doing that makes you think you have that virus?

Yea, I was super pleased about the virus scans :thumbsup: So, same as everyone else with google redirect - everytime I search with google and choose a link it redirects me to porn or advertisment pages. I've tried all the searches in safe mode even! Frustrating for sure!

Hello , the 2 found there are other security tools. Since you are still being redirected please do these..
Have you updated MBAm prior to running it?

Rerun MBAM (MalwareBytes) like this:

Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan (normal mode).
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot into normal mode.

OK run one more and tell if you still redirect.

Please read and follow all these instructions very carefully.
  • Please download GooredFix and save it to your Desktop.
  • Double-click GooredFix.exe to run it.
  • A log will open, please post the contents of that log in your next reply (it can also be found on your desktop, called Goored.txt).

Hello we have 2 more tools ti try in this forum..
Part 1 of S!Ri's SmitfraudFix
Please download SmitfraudFix

Double-click SmitfraudFix.exe
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.
http://www.beyondlogic.org/consulting/proc...processutil.htm


Now DrWeb,this will take a couple hoiurs
Before we start fixing anything you should print out these instructions or copy them to a NotePad file so they will be accessible. Some steps will require you to disconnect from the Internet or use Safe Mode and you will not have access to this page.

Please download Dr.Web CureIt and save it to your desktop. DO NOT perform a scan yet.
alternate download link
Note: The file will be randomly named (i.e. 5mkuvc4z.exe).

Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with Dr.Web CureIt as follows:
  • Double-click on the randomly named file to open the program and click Start. (There is no need to update if you just downloaded the most current version
  • Read the Virus check by DrWeb scanner prompt and click Ok where asked to Start scan now? Allow the setup.exe to load if asked by any of your security programs.
  • The Express scan will automatically begin.
    (This is a short scan of files currently running in memory, boot sectors, and targeted folders).
  • If prompted to dowload the Full version Free Trial, ignore and click the X to close the window.
  • If an infected object is found, you will be prompted to move anything that cannot be cured. Click Yes to All. (This will move any detected files to the C:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\DoctorWeb\Quarantine folder if they can't be cured)
  • After the Express Scan is finished, put a check next to Complete scan to scan all local disks and removable media.
  • In the top menu, click Settings > Change settings, and uncheck "Heuristic analysis" under the "Scanning" tab, then click Apply, Ok.
  • Back at the main window, click the green arrow "Start Scanning" button on the right under the Dr.Web logo.
  • Please be patient as this scan could take a long time to complete.
  • When the scan has finished, a message will be displayed at the bottom indicating if any viruses were found.
  • Click Select All, then choose Cure > Move incurable.
  • In the top menu, click file and choose save report list.
  • Save the DrWeb.csv report to your desktop.
  • Exit Dr.Web Cureit when done.
  • Important! Reboot your computer because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web in your next reply. (You can use Notepad to open the DrWeb.cvs report)

I downloaded the smitfraudfix.exe. When I double click it an empty black box appears and then immediately disappears...what should I do? Should I continue on with the Dr. Web CureIt process? Thanks for your help!

hi OK, great news. I don't like that a tool would not run so give it a day and see if all is good. Let me know and we'll mop up.
