Formatted and installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 about 5 days ago, and within a day I'd got this malware problem. I've got AVG and Malwarebytes always running in the background. I've read about these Google redirects elsewhere on the forums and on other sites, but mine doesn't seem to be quite as intense (touch wood). It seems to only affect me when I visit known anti-virus sites like the AVG forums etc. Though I have noticed it redirecting me when just looking at innocent sites such as BBC.co.uk. The redirect is taking me to 'licosearch'.
Steps I've taken:
Scanned with AVG in Safe Mode. -Nothing found.
Scanned with MalwareBytes in Safe Mode -Nothing found.
Created HijackThis logs and processed at hijackthis.de checker -Nothing found.
Scanned with HitmanPro -Nothing found.
Scanned with AVG Rootkit Scan in Safe Mode. -Nothing found.
Update to above list:
Scanned with ESET Online Scanner. -Nothing found.
Scanned with TDSSKiller. -Nothing found.
Someone elsewhere on this forum or on another tech support forum (I forget which), said they found it to be a network problem rather than local to their own PC. They said after rebooting their router the problem stopped. I tried this, didn't work... Also tried doing a hard reset of the router to factory settings, but still no luck.
Any help would be great appreciated, and I'll check this thread every half hour or so to ensure I don't waste anyones time by not responding!
