Hello, I seem to be having the problem most people are having right now; I've been infected with the google redirect virus. I've run Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, Spybot: Search and Destroy, and AVG free version, and none of these has picked anything up besides tracking cookies, which I subsequently quarentined and deleted. My OS is Windows 7 (64x, I think), and my browser is Firefox. I've installed the NoScript addon from Firefox, and that seems to have fixed it, however I am at a friends place, and would like to use my laptop (which I think is still infected), but am not sure how to check if I've actually removed the problem, and really, really don't want to infect them accidentally. I have heard of trying to use Combifix to remove the rootkit infection, but am wary to try this without help from an administrator. Thank you in advance for your help.

This may be a crazy but are you on wireless at your place or house you were corrupted?

I just had this problem for 5 days and used every prog under the sun.

My solution? I reset my router. (push reset on back or bottom for 10 seconds)

I solved my redirect problem.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the reply, maddog20. Yes, I was on wireless, but we reset the router, made a stronger password, and I was still having the redirect problem. Thanks though. ^^
