Hi,

I have probably a similar problem to what I have been seeing all over the boards lately. When I click on A Google link it gets redirected to a spam website. I have tried spybot, Malwarebytes, McAfee, an online scanner, and Kapersky TDSSKiller but nothing has worked. I still have the problem. Can somebody please assist me with this? I would really appreciate it.

Thanks

Here is a screenshot of what kapersky shows

I suspect that youe router is hijacked by trojan DNS-hijacker.

  • Please read this: Malware Silently Alters Wireless Router Settings

  • Then reset your router to it's factory default settings:

    "If your machine has been infected by one of these Zlob/DNSchanger Trojans, and your router settings have been altered, I would strongly recommend that you reset the router to its default configuration. Usually, this can be done by inserting something tiny like a paper clip end or pencil tip into a small hole labeled "reset" located on the back of the router. Press and hold down the small button inside until the lights on the front of the router blink off and then on again (usually about 10 seconds)"


  • This is the difficult part.
    First get to the routers server. To do that open Internet Explorer and type http:\\192.168.1.1 in the address bar and click Enter. You get the log in window.
    Fill in the password you have already found and you will get the configuration page.
    Configure the router to allow you to connect to your ISP server. In some routers it is done by a setup wizard. But you have to fill in the log in password your ISP has initially given to you.
    You can also call your ISP if you don't have your initial password.
    Don't forget to change the routers default password and set a strong password. Note down the password and keep it somewhere for future reference.
