When I try to load google.com, it loads Hack Forums. I also can't get to gmail. This affects both Firefox, Chrome and IE browsers.
I have done a complete antivirus scan with Kaspersky in safe mode and it found and removed these three files:
Trojan.Win32.Cosmu.zny in C:\Program Files\sam.exe
Trojan.Win32.Cosmu.zny in C:\Users\owner\AppData\Local\Temp\msconfig.exe
Trojan.Win32.Cosmu.zny in C:\$Recycle.Bin\S-1-5-21-1529291139-3996524414-2757359542-1000\$RCEC4UK.exe
I still have the problem even after those were removed. I ran a full scan with Kaspersky again and it found nothing. Google and Gmail work for me on two other computers, so it is definitely this machine.
I have no idea what to do. I can't find any information about this problem online. Everything I find is about a "google redirect" which is apparently when google searches are coming back wrong. Again, when I go to www.google.com, the page looks like I went to www.hackforums.net but the address bar still reads www.google.com
Please help me! Thank you!
