Hi Bleeping Computer Forum. I am having an issue with what I believe is a Google redirect virus. I have run virtually every malware removal tool I can find but haven't had any luck removing it. I'm hoping someone might have some advice on how to fix the problem.

The problem:

When I search with google I see some strange website domains in the status bar, and I usually am redirected to a non google search page full of ads. Uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox did not work. Domain name was pleasewaitsearch.com and recently switched to search2box.com. Also a couple pop-up ads result when it redirects.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Then post your DDS and GMER logs as a reply to this topic. Once you have done that I will remove my reply and consolidate the posts so that you retain your correct place in the queue.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the reply and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
