I would like to make a request of a Stick thread of a step by step process of eliminating the web browser redirect problems. It seems like 1/2 of these new posts are about this problem.

To effectively help newcomers, we should simply have this thread made and future users can be linked quickly to it

Thanks BC

Not all redirects are caused by the same malware, so it would be impossible to write a topic that covers all situations.

We do have this guide though: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-tdss-tdl3-alureon-rootkit-using-tdsskiller

Further, there are no guarantees or shortcuts when it comes to malware removal, especially when dealing with backdoor Trojans, Botnets, IRCBots and rootkits. This means infections will vary and some will cause more harm to your system than others as backdoor Trojans not only compromise your system, they have the ability to download even more malicious files. Since infections and severity of damage will vary, it may take several efforts with different, the same or more powerful tools to do the job.
