Thought I would share with you in case it is helpful:

I struggled for months to get rid of a browser redirect virus. It's characteristic was that it hijacked google-analytics to and so it would hijack my clicks to unintended
sites. I have no idea how I got it.

I finally found my problem:
First, it was manifested by doing a PING to google-analytics. That got hijacked to wich is some rogue address (I wish someone could do something about them).
Second, the problem was detected by kapersky 'TDSSKILLER' utility. It detected a problem with SPTD.SYS. I removed that file but then my system was not happy on rebooting.
I found that file was part of deamon lite, so I reinstalled that freeware, and I am finally back to normal!!

PS some folks that have this problem find it to be in their router, and thus will never find it on the computer, so be sure to check that out. May need a reset of the router.

Thanks for posting.
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
