Hi. I really need some help please! I have had a Google redirect virus for a couple of weeks now and nothing I do gets rid of it. Bits & pieces get removed, but the redirect keeps coming back. It used to redirect to random different sites, but now it seems to be focused only on Scour.com (so far). Here is what I have ran:

HiJack This
Hitman Pro
Spybot Search & Destroy
Super Antispyware

Some find nothing, some find things and claim to cure it, but it just won't stay permanently gone! Please help!

I am running Windows XP Home, Service Pack 3 (automatic windows updates)
Firefox 12.0


P.S. I posted this originally in the Security Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum. Then realized maybe I was supposed to post in this forum first. Sorry for double post.

Not to worry. The general process is to post in the Am I Infected? Forum first, then if needed to submit a log. The important thing, however, is that you are getting help ridding your hard drive of malware. Since you have submitted a log, further replies to this thread are not necessary.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
