Hey guys, well i have been ignoring this for weeks but i think it might be starting to actually put other viruses on my computer. Well when i click a link on google search, in any browser it SOMETIMES redirects me to an advertisement site. These advertisement sites are sometimes harmful and one even poses to be scanning my computer and telling me it's infected and i should buy there av. I know it's fake.

Well i have tried scanning with malbytes, spybot and avg. But they found nothing.

Can someone help? Do i need to post that hijackthis thingo?

Thanks!

EDIT: I was suggested some thing called combofix to fix it, but apparently it can harm your computer it is that powerful.

Hello,

Given that you can't seem to discover the name, let's skip the removal guide. I'm going to forward you to the specialized malware removal forum instead.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please a description of your computer issues and what you have done to try to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/321508/google-redirect-virus-and-other-small-problems/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
