okay, so a few days ago I got that lovely google redirect bug that's been going around. It came bundled with desktop defender 2010 which not only kept telling me that I was infected via the Vista security center (I'm using XP, HA!) but hid explorer from me. Anyway, long story short, after getting rid of it (Malwarebytes, AVG, Adaware) I noticed that I was also getting the google redirect virus, courtesy of the faulty wdmaud.drv in my System32 file- not to be confused with wdmaud.drv in system32/drivers. I know that some people have been able to get rid of this damned thing, but it's been a thorn in my side for the better part of the week now and I'm hoping that someone here is familiar with this bug enough to help get rid of it. I've read through various threads of this nature, but have been thus far unable to fix this problem. I have a ten year old in the house so not using google is going to be a bit tricky in this house. If anyone here knows the fix for this stupid thing, please help, I would be truly in your debt.
Thanks in advance.
