I have picked up the google redirect virus, I think over the last few days(who knows?). I have tried Hitman Pro & Eset online scanner. No luck so far. Hitman pro did detect somethings & quarantined them. After I rebooted & ran the scan again, it now says there is a TDL3, or Alureon rootkit trace. Eset also removed a few things. I tried the Kasperksy tdss killer but it didn't pick up anything. I saved the logs for both scans if needed. I was going to try combofix but I think it's a little too out of my experience so thought to post here. I am using an old Dell inspiron 630m which came bundled with Mcafee. So far I can log in & have internet access, I just have to keep opening the search results in a new tab(Firefox) and I can get around the redirect. I would rather get rid of this thing alltogether than try to constantly block it. Any help much appreciated & thanx again.
