Hi- I have had a Google redirect problem for a few weeks now, when browsing the net or opening links on Google I will sometimes get redirected to unknown websites or a new window will open usually showing Yahoo. Usually when redirected I will have to close the page, the back bar wont take me back to original website.

I am currently running Norton Internet security 2010 and using Malwarebytes and Superantispyware as my scan only tools. After multiple scans the problem has gotten better but is definitely still there. My computer was unprotected when it got infected.

I am using Windows XP Media Center Edition 2002 service pack 3.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks-

Thanks for the response, sorry I was out of town for a few days.

I ran TDS and it processed 226 objects- 0 infections found.

When I closed TDS a blue screen opened with text that started with "a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage". I had to manually power down the computer to restart it. Upon restart I ran TDS again with the same scan result. When I closed TDS this time I had no issue with the blue screen.

I am still having redirect issues, any more help is greatly appreciated. :thumbsup:

Run a scan with SUPERAntiSpyware in Safe Mode and post the log.

Download this file and save it to your desktop:

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.scr

Double-click the file to run it. A command window will open briefly. Then update and run a quick scan with Malwarebytes. Post the Malwarebytes log.

Log in as an Admin. Go Start > Run > type: "cmd" In the window that appears type: "ipconfig /flushdns". Close the command box.

Please download HostsXpert 4.3
  • Extract (unzip) HostsXpert.zip to a permanent folder on your hard drive such as C:\HostsXpert
  • Double-click HostsXpert.exe to run the program.
  • Click "Restore MS Hosts File".
  • Click OK at the confirmation box.
  • Click "Make ReadOnly?".
  • Click the X to exit the program.
-- Note: If you were using a custom Hosts file you will need to replace any of those entries yourself.

If you use a router check the DNS settings to see if they have been changed (or just reset the router).

Yes, still having problems. I just had a redirect while checking out ebay items, the redirect went to this website: (I have tried to remove link and just post what was in the command bar...if it comes up as a link-please delete)
