I recently recovered from the Vista Security 2012 virus following the instructions found on bleepingcomputer.com.
Since then, I am unable to click on any Google search results without being redirected to an ad site. Also, every few minutes I get a Windows message saying "TCP/IP Ping command has stopped working." Neither of these problems existed before the outbreak of Vista Security 2012 virus.
I have Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware installed on my machine and this is what I used (along with the other steps included in the bleeping computer instructions) to recover from the Vista Security virus.
The TCP/IP issue appears to only occur after I have opened a browser.
Other than removing the Vista Security 2012 virus with Malwarebytes, I have taken no further action related to these lingering symptoms.
Should I be discussing the Google Redirects and the TCP/IP Ping Command issues as separate threads? They both appear to be unresolved symptoms of my Vista Security outbreak so I mention them together.
I made an effort to read the instructions before posting and I hope I have provided the appropriate information.
