On reading the net and several Forum`s including this one, Redirect virus`s appear to be a big problem, especially the Google Redirect virus - this virus seems to be causing an enormous amount of trouble to many users worldwide.
The solutions I have read vary from complex procedures, many of which are probably beyond the scope of the average user, to simply killing it off with a good AM program like MBAM, A-Squared AM or Hitman-Pro, including the free versions.
A stupid question most likely ? But, if we are using Sandboxie then how can this virus possibly get out of the sandbox to infect our system ? All contents of the sandbox are deleted on browser shut-down, including the virus. What is the problem ?
It is easy to get infected by being slap-happy, it is also easy not to get infected by using Sandboxie and a variety of other AM programs.
