Heya guys!


For the past about 3 months I've had this dumb DNS virus (or trojan) and it keeps redirecting facebook.com to myspace.com

It's simple for me to fix. I'll flush the DNS revolver cache and clear my browsing history, and its gone! I've posted on here before and we thought the virus was gone for good but 3 weeks later it started happening again. We went through Hijack this and the whole shebang...does anyone have a DNS remover of some sort or something?

My pc is clean. No rootkit viruses or anything. MBAM didn't pick up anything....all the recommend programs I tried found nothing...and my TCP/IP is always set a "Obtain IP address automatically"


All is appreciated!

This virus happens on my laptop and my main computer. So I'm guessing I must of installed something on both of the PC's that's causing the problem.

Now we will work on the DNS changer,,,,
Next you must reset the router to its default configuration. This can be done by inserting something tiny like a paper clip end or pencil tip into a small hole labeled "reset" located on the back of the router. Press and hold down the small button inside until the lights on the front of the router blink off and then on again (usually about 10 seconds). If you donít know the router's default password, you can look it up HERE.

However, if there are other Zlob-infected machines using the same router, they will need to be cleared with the above steps before resetting the router. Otherwise, the malware will simply go back and change the router's DNS settings. You also need to reconfigure any security settings you had in place prior to the reset. Check out this site HERE for video tutorials on how to properly configure your router's encryption and security settings. You may also need to consult with your Internet service provider to find out which DNS servers your network should be using.

Once you have ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware on the infected system, and reset the router to its default configuration you can reconnect to the internet, and router.

Heya! Sorry for the late reply. I found a DNS changer when I ran the scan for my laptop...it was all good, then as I was browsing my downstairs PC facebook changed to myspace. I think you're right, AVAST it is. I thought Microsoft Security Essentials was for anti-virus also. Guess not. I'll give avast! a shot.
