Hi all,

I understand this is quite a common problem but seeing that it is often different in different peoples cases I decided to just start my own thread and try to find out what I can do about this. Basically, I am running Windows 7 64-bit and have recently noticed a lot of the time when I am searching on Google I am being redirected to other websites, that are not related to my search whatsoever. I am also seeing some strange adverts on websites, which I think have also been placed there by the virus or malware/spyware, whatever this is.

I tried using Malware Bytes and AVG but got no results in the scans; where can I go from here?

Thanks for any input

Hi,

Thanks for the link. I have tried the Kaspersky tool, yet it is finding no threats at all. I don't know where to go from here and it just seems like everything is missing it. :/

Update:

Just ran the ESET Online Scanner and was returned with a result named "PDF/Eploit.Pidief.PDS.Gen Trojan" Just going to restart the system and see if it has fixed anything.

Thanks to Budapest your time :)

Turns out this didnt cure it, and it was in fact my router that had been infected. Quick factory reset really has killed off this nuisance :) FOr anyone, with this problem running a router try a factory reset. Remember though that all your passwords and such will be erased.

Good to hear you got it sorted out.
