Hi there.
Had a look around at a number of topics having used the search facility, and a look at tutorials, spyware removal ie a reasonable look at what exists to see if I could find a fix already developed. It seems that the version that we have of the Google Redirect Virus may be a bit different as I could not find any references to hxxp://www.roads-traffic.com which is the site which seems to redirect both Firefox and Explorer Google searches to a number of random sites including gambling etc.

My son's machine is running Windows Vista Home Premium SP2, and has McAfee Total Protection system running. I ran a full scan using the McAfee software and it discovered and dealt with 4 viruses, but the Google Redirect Virus was untouched.

Firefox is version 3.6.3 and Explorer is version 8.0.6001.18904

Google search on both via toolbar brings up search items. On clicking on any particular hyperlink, the browser page tab displays "http://roads-traffic.com/gosearch?..... and then diverts the page to random sites, although Ask Jeeves seems to be a favourite. On a regular basis, the page turns red and a message from IE states "This website has been reported as unsafe "roads-traffic.com " we recommend that you do not continue to this website etc.
Sometimes it comes up with a page indicating that there are numerous viruses and the machine is infected, so please purchase xyz virus cleaner etc.

If you put hyperlink into address bar at the top of the browser, the browser will go to the required page without issue.

Could you please advise course of action to get rid of this virus?

Many thanks

Nigel J Davies

Hello,

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.46) and save it to your desktop.Download Link 1
Download Link 2
MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
    For instructions with screenshots, please refer to the How to use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Guide.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.In your next post include the MBAM log and an updated description of your computer issues.

Hi there.
Ran Malwarebytes' Anti Malware and then checked the browers and it seems to have done the trick - brilliant! However one issue now comes up on rebooting the machine.
A Run DLL error comes up with the following message:

C:\Users\Ed\AppData\Roaming\12ab820e-86ae-4940-ae8d-81cb76fec729_30.avi The specified module could not be found.

Have included the Malwarebytes' log below as requested - btw, could you advise whether it is worth buying the full version and running this alongside normal McAfee Total Protection?

Cheers

Nigel

Hello, did you reboot after that scan,it was needed.

Its not unusual to receive such an error after using specialized fix tools.

A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message is usually related to malware that was set to run at startup but has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads.

To resolve this, download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.

Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if you're not sure how to do this.)
Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.
Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.
Right-click on the entry and choose delete.
Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.



Next run ATF and SAS: If you cannot access Safe Mode,run in normal ,but let me know.

Note: On Vista, "Windows Temp" is disabled. To empty "Windows Temp" ATF-Cleaner must be "Run as an Administrator".

From your regular user account..
Download Attribune's ATF Cleaner and then SUPERAntiSpyware , Free Home Version. Save both to desktop ..
DO NOT run yet.
Open SUPER from icon and install and Update it
Under Scanner Options make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
Close browsers before scanning.
Scan for tracking cookies.
Terminate memory threats before quarantining
.
Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program. DO NOT run yet.

Now reboot into Safe Mode: How to enter safe mode(XP)
Using the F8 Method
Restart your computer.
When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode
.

Double-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
Click the Empty Selected button.

If you use Firefox or Opera browser click that browser at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program
.

NOW Scan with SUPER
Open from the desktop icon or the program Files list
On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
Perform a Complete scan. After scan,Verify they are all checked.
Click OK on the summary screen to quarantine all found items.
If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.

To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log.
A text file will open in your default text editor.
Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
Click Close to exit the program.


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.
Please ask any needed questions,post logs and Let us know how the PC is running now.

Hi there. Now run Autoruns, ATF cleaner and SuperAntiSpyware as suggested. Autoruns has fixed error message, and it appears that SuperAntiSpyware has cleaned out some more bugs. Running MBAM produced no further bugs.
I would like to thank the experts for their advice and help - this has fixed things rapidly. Well done and thanks again - I would definitely recommend this site to all!
Could you please advise whether it is worth running MBAM (paid for version) and SuperAntiSpyware (paid for version) alongside the McAfee Total Protection?

A verey big thank you to all the experts that have helped solve this problem - really appreciate it!

Great service, great site.

Hi...hope you can help

I've read this with interest as I have just picked up the same virus.

I'm running a pc, with Firefox as my browser and ESET as my antispam.

I have followed the procedure given in this thread and downloaded the MalwareBytes Anti Malware....and rebooted etc but.... the real-traffic.com search still overlaps Google!!

Does anyone know whatelse I can try

Much much appreciated

Thanks Nigel

I get this message sometimes in a blue box ...


www.google.com 443 uses an invalid securitycertificate
This certificate is not trusted because it is self signedThe cert is only valid for 78-159-121-201.local
(Error code:sec_error_untrusted_issuer)

This could be a problem as it could be someone trying to impersonate the server.

If you have connected succesfully in the past this serror may be temporary and you can try again later

@NJ Davies... sorry I lost this topic..
Yes they would both be complimentary to McAfee.. Update and scan weekly.

Now you should Create a New Restore Point to prevent possible reinfection from an old one. Some of the malware you picked up could have been backed up, renamed and saved in System Restore. Since this is a protected directory your tools cannot access to delete these files, they sometimes can reinfect your system if you accidentally use an old restore point. Setting a new restore point AFTER cleaning your system will help prevent this and enable your computer to "roll-back" to a clean working state.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok". Disk Cleanup will scan your files for several minutes, then open.
  • Click the "More Options" tab, then click the "Clean up" button under System Restore.
  • Click Ok. You will be prompted with "Are you sure you want to delete all but the most recent restore point?"
  • Click Yes, then click Ok.
  • Click Yes again when prompted with "Are you sure you want to perform these actions?"
  • Disk Cleanup will remove the files and close automatically.
Vista and Windows 7 users can refer to these links: Create a New Restore Point in Vista or Windows 7 and Disk Cleanup in Vista.

@ namorton

We need a deeper look. There is avariant in yours.
Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9,which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If Gmer won't run,skip it and move on.
Let me know if that went well.
