Hello and I have a work computer that is locked up. I seem to have a recurring virus that redirects using google to pop ups that locks up my computer. After researching a bit and months of frustration, it seems like the deleted virus is never officially deleted.... possibly lying dormant and then the minimal of use in the internet, the above happens again. It is a trying to get me to buy a fake "Windows Security" and the latest is "XP Total Security 2011". My computer programs are frozen and there are only pop ups with a corresponding icon on the task bar. A computer tech has already run the Malwareantivirus sp? MBAM? to get my computer to run before, but it keeps comimg back, easily. Please help. Thank you.

I had the same thing. I am a newbie to this, but bleeping computer was fabulous. I searched 'google redirect' and there was a brilliant step by step guide to how to get rid of it. I ended up using Kapersky (?) link on the bleeping computer help page and it got rid of it when nothing else (Mbam, Stinger etc) had worked. Good luck

You could post on the Am I Infected forum for some help. If it gets tricky they will refer you to the Malware forum. Not all Google redirects are caused by the same malware so it's best to ask for some advice. :)
