I seem to have the google redirect virus on my pc as well as something that stops me from doing any downloads at all from the microsoft website. The PC's auto download will show in my system tray, stay at 0%, then disappear.

I have McAfee total protection on this PC, spybot search & Destroy, Superantispyware, and malwarebytes. Each of these has been run in normal and safe mode and though many things have been picked up, it still hasn't cleaned this pc and the 2 main issues remain.

I have tried using IE 8, and Mozilla Firefox and both get the same results.

Also sporadically a new tab will be created for no reason and it starts with this url (generally) hxxp://113594url.cptgt.com then redirects to some sort of advertisement, ala Kevin's riches, etc.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Would you try this guide for google redirects?


No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
