Hello. This is my first post on this site. From what it looks like, it seems to be a great site to get info for help on virus removal. The problem I am having is that everytime I google something, once I click on the link, I am redirected to an advertising site. I have tried Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware. They have not worked. A friend told me about Combofix so I tried it, but I am not sure if I did it correctly. From what I am reading on this site, it seems that I should not have tried ComboFix unless I was reccomended to by a training professional. What should I do to remove this annoying virus or malware?

Hello,

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at step 6.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Since you have run ComboFix, please include the ComboFix log in the new topic.

If you cannot produce any of the other logs, then please create the new topic anyway, include the information that you were unable to produce the other logs and why and include the ComboFix log along with a description of your computer issues.

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/320805/google-redirect-virus/ 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.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log which I see has been picked up.
