I'm new to bleepingcompueter but not new to the internet, I got involved back when bulletin boards were pretty much the only way to share information, when the old ARPA net was running. I found this forum because I got infected with some type of search engine / browser redirect virus that I couldn't remove in any of the simple ways. I managed to solve my problem and thought I should hang around now and see if others experience the same thing I did and how the problem gets solved by the pros here. The virus I had was so well writtren I couldn't even see posts on this forum that were more recent than 2008, I couldn't access Microsoft sites and it even would occasionally stop me from using Facebook by throwing in a redirect when I would go from one page back to my own page. I read all the help that was done here but none of it applied to my problem exactly because it was so old and I was blocked from joining or posting.

Hello and :thumbsup: to Bleeping Computer.

Be sure to check out the New User Orientation and the excellent Tutorials.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

—George Bernard Shaw
