Welcome to BC. Try this.
Go to Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices.
Scroll down to “Non-plug and Play Drivers” and click the plus icon to open those drivers.
Then search for “TDSSserv.sys”
Right click on it, and select “Disable”
Note: If you select Uninstall, it will install itself again when you reboot the system, so DON’T select Uninstall.
Restart your pc.
You can now update your Antirus/Malware/Rootkit softwares and the go.google rubbish will stop.
Its now up to the Anti-Virus/Malware/Spyware companies to make an effort to stop this, and not rely on simple basic home PC user’s like myself to save the world
In simple terms, TDSSserv.sys is a service/server redirecting all software updates to 127.0.0.1 (your own computer) so they won’t update
Update you Malwarebytes and run full scan. ComboFix is another great utility that will remove it. I would instruct you on how to use it but I am not allowed to. Hopefully a Moderator will chime in and do the instructing on Combofix.
