As many others, I'm currently struggling with a Google redirect virus. (Well, it's not really Google, but it appears in the Google search). The search redirects to several different ads and I can't seem to get rid of it. Hope someone can help me since I'm out of options.
OS: Windows 7
Browser: IE (I also use Firefox and Opera from time to time).
Search: Google toolbar
The problem started around the 15th/16th as far as I can tell.
-Running Norton 360 Premier Edition - nothing appears (from time to time a popup comes up telling me they've prevented an attempt, but no information).
-Running Malwarebytes' anti-malware. It found a hijacker, quaranteened and deleted it, but it didn't help. Now, when I run it, it can't find a single problem.
-Running Super anti-spyware, which usually picks up a whole lot of things, but nothing.
-I've tried running Trend micro hichjackthis to see if I could recognize some strange files, but it was too much to choose from on the list.
-I've also tried searching through the register keys, but can't find anything (yet).
Hope someone can help me.
