Hi there,

As it says in the heading, im afraid im another one struck down with the 'Google redirect' virus, which points me to licosearch.

It does not allow me to download various '.exe' files or visit a range of sites including bleepingcomputer, so I am having to log into my works network from home.

I have followed the common processes that are consistantly recommended on other sites and forums, but cannot get rid of it.

I have checked manually the files under system32 and devices, but do not have the corrupt files or text others refer too.

I then downloaded the rkill.exe, followed by spybots 'search and destroy' but neither of these work either.

I've got to the stage now that I dont know what to do next and dont want to risk trying something that will kill my computer, so would be grateful for assistance in getting rid of what is the worst virus i've had to deal with.
