Hi Guys,

One of my clients currently have a google redirect error on there machine. We have run superantispyware, malwarebytes, tdsskiller, ccleaner. We have even rebuilt the desktop with the same virus inbeeded onto the hard drive.

I am currently running Combofix and i will add the log once it has run. Do you have any suggestions on how to get rid of this redirect virus?? An urgent reply would be most gratfull as our client needs there machine asap.

I went to the below link and what worked for two different client machines was the following.

http://www.brighthub.com/internet/security-privacy/articles/73919.aspx

download Rkill and TDSSKILLER onto a usb stick.

Reboot into safe mode with networking

Run Rkill - this will pinpoint the where the location of the virus might be.

Then after running RKILL run TDSSKILLER, this will pick on the infected file and remove/cure it.

This might require a reboot, if it does reboot back into safe mode with networking and test if google redirection has rectified itself.

(i dont know if im allowed to post this but it taken me 5 to 6 hours to find a solution) I hope this helps anyone
