Ive used Hitman pro 64 bit, AVG antivirus, and Malwarebytes. Nothing has worked.
What I have is some sort of virus that redirects me to a different webpage when I click on a link in google, although Im not sure what all it does.
Im willing to provide as much details as possible for anybody who is competent in dealing with issues like this.
I cant remember clearly how I got this virus, but I think it was from replacing something in my host file and connecting to a proxy that the author designed to redirect data packets for a game called Realm of The Mad God, thereby enabling some cool hacked features that made it easier to progress in the game.
But the author has some different purposes in mind as well it seems and Ive had multiple hack attempts on my computer, some of which have seemed to work out.
If its not that, then it may be from something else about 8 months ago, where I put some random folder in my windows folder, but hitman pro was able to identify that as not something authorized being there, so that seems to be gone.
It may have also been from a fake flash player update. Hitman Pro identified that as well, but Im unclear as to whether it was removed or not.
But the thing is, I don't know where it came from and how I can identify it, so I would assume that's the first step in getting rid of it.
Is there any way I can offer more info to the experts who are willing to lend me a hand at eliminating this virus (probably a root-kit)?
Im eager to get this over with and Ill be checking back on here every hour or so, a prompt reply would be nice.
Just tell me whats next and Im all game.
my operating system is Windows 7 64 Bit.
