I have recently noticed that my x64 Windows 7 laptop began randomly redirecting me from google to other websites. I decided to look more into it, and after running my virus scan (I am using BitDefender) it is now popping up consistently every minute telling me it has blocked Ping.exe from running. It says this file is located at C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Ping.exe. If anyone could help point me in the right direction to see if I am infected and how badly, along with removing it, it would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hello please repost this issue as you will need some specific help with this.

If needed try Reboot into Safe Mode with Networking
How to start Windows 7 in Safe Mode


We need a deeper look. Please go here....Preparation Guide ,do steps 6-9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If GMER won't run skip it and move on.

Let me know if that went well.

It will not allow me to download that tool. Nothing begins downloading when I press the download button.

I take you mean you cannot run DDS and you did try safe mode.

If you cannot get DDS to work, please try this instead.

Please download OTL by OldTimer and save it to your Desktop.
  • Close all other applications and windows so that you have nothing open.
  • Double click on the Posted Image icon on your desktop.

    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
    If you receive a UAC prompt asking if you would like to continue running the program, you should press the Continue button.
  • Under Output, ensure that Minimal Output is selected.
  • Click the "Scan All Users" checkbox.
    Leave the remaining selections to the default settings.
  • Click the Posted Image button.
  • Do not use the computer while the scan is in progress.
  • When the scan is complete, two log files will open in Notepad:
    • OTListIt.txt <- (will be maximized)
    • Extras.txt <- (will be minimized in the Task Bar).
  • Both logs are automatically saved to the Desktop.
  • Please copy and paste the contents of OTListIt.txt and Extras.txt in your next reply.
    If the Extras.txt log is too long, you may need to add a second reply to your thread or upload it as an attachment.
  • Click the red X in the upper right corner to exit OTL.
Important: Be sure to mention that you tried to follow the Prep Guide but were unable to get DDS to run. If OTL did not work, then reply back here.

No I don't mean that I am unable to run it, I cannot download it. I cannot download anything right now actually. My computer is going downhill fast, any ideas?
