The theme of the day for Am I Infected seems to be "Google Redirect".
Sure, yea it does piss me off, I have that problem too, but really. Instead of EVERYBODY posting about it, why don't we all watch ONE post and wait for a solution?
Me, on the other hand, I can't even start my Anti Virus program, and these guys are worried about google redirecting? Geez, use Yahoo til we all figure it out. /End Rant.

I'm not here to have a problem solved, I'm just bored, with ZILCH to do, other than WAIT for a solution to my MSE not working (Again, not asking for help here :3 )
and I don't want to reply to too many peoples issues and get reprimanded. Not complaining (Well...Depends on what you consider complaining) just, need to make some conversation.

On a desperate note: SOMEBODY PLEASE TALK TOO MMEEEE </3

Anyone feel like talking about this whole google redirect issue? or the fact that everyones posting about the same thing and flooding the AII section preventing us people with real (Depends what you consider real) problems like our AV's not working (Again, not asking for help, just conversation :3 )

It amazes me how simple you guys are getting infected. Most of my clients say they get infected by clicking on links from facebook messages or emails. Doing a quick Google Search and clicking on a shady website could also get you.

If you are getting Google Redirects, you probably just have a rootkit that can be cleaned with TDSSKiller. If you're lucky and got a bada** Zero Access rootkit, you'll either have to run ComboFix or reformat. You may also want to check your host file, proxy settings, and DNS settings.

Once you cleaned up your computer, I recommend keeping all your browser plugins (Adobe Flash and Reader, Java, etc.) up-to-date. A good way to check is using Firefox Plugin Check (works for all broswers)

Good luck getting help ;)

If that works, that will be wonderful news :3
I'm not really worried about it cuz I found a way around it, I click on the cache button to see googles cached version of the website i wish to see. Crafty, right? XD



BTW, Firefox went and UPDATED ITSELF without WARNING ME and all my tabs were gone when i restarted firefox, along with all my saved passwords, all my bookmarks, everything browser related -.- still getting redirected though. LOL
This sucks.
Comeon, we need somebody with a smart mouth to join in, mines not "smart" enough cuz I'm talking through my fingers :3

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

In his defense and mine, we were only talking, I wasn't asking for help and he was only explaining a possible issue. We weren't trying to solve any issues, just talk about them. >.>

No disrespect whatsoever, but I'd be more happy if you'd go help somebody else, I don't need it. :D Thanks anyway, it's much appreciated.


Edit: There are so many other people who need it, and Im just here for the ride, they need it more than me ;D Thanks again though Boopme, you're probably the greatest :3
