I am running Windows XP home and am currently up to date on all current windows updates. A couple of days ago I ran into a problem with Antivir after visiting a website. I was able to update Superantispyware, malware bytes, and spybot search and destroy in safe mode and get rid of quite a few different adware and a couple trojens. After running these programs it seemed to fix everything except for the redirecting of the google search. I have also since downloaded AVG free, and have scanned twice with nothing coming up. I also keep this running in the background. I have looked around on different forums and have yet to find anything. I am somewhat new to this and any help would be great! Thanks!

Funny you ask this now, just *Yesterday* I was throwing my hands up for the Exact. Same. Annoying problem.

I found a solution on another forum last night & as of now, all seems to be fine again:

Malwarebytes Antimalware (but I think you already did this step)

Hitman Pro 3.5 (it's free for 30 days)

Next, download TDSSKiller and follow guide to use the tool:

And when you're done, check your LAN settings in Internet Explorer like this:

Open Internet Explorer and go to Tools-Internet Options-Connection Tab. Click on the LAN settings button. IF there is a check mark next to "Use a proxy server for your LAN", uncheck it. Click OK. Then OK, again.


I'll be curious to know if that works for you too. Good luck!
