Hi,

So I noticed today my DNS wasn't exactly working for google, other sites I use worked fine. So I finally got google to run but it had the URL as www.google.com.au/webhp or something very similar.
Did some reading and people think it's a root kit etc. Done every scan known to man including aswMBR, malware bytes, SAS etc and have had nothing pop up.
So I am not sure if there is something there but I believe there is as one of my games doesn't detect that I am online anymore. Yesterday it was fine so I suspect something has happened somewhere.

Let me know what logs etc you guys need.

Regards

That is over 2 years old, I haven't really noticed any change in the google page before. Just this morning when I got on it had webhp in the url and I don't remember it ever having that any time before.
The main problem is that google just wouldn't load on my usual DNS servers provided by my ISP so I changed them to googles and it worked fine. For some reason google.com.au wouldn't work but google.com.au/webhp would.
The DNS servers if you want to try them are 220.233.0.3 and 220.233.0.4 provided by Exetel.

The main reason I am concerned is everything people have linked about their google automatically changing to webhp indicates a rootkit / malware.
