Hello: I have a Windows XP machine and have a hijack virus that I can not remove. I was doing research on installing laminate flooring and a home repair forum had link with a video on how to do the install. I clicked it and an Installation box popped-up with with a message to click to get the video. I clicked it and was routed to an adult website, then my problems started. Every time that I do a Google search and click a link from the search, I am routhed to a 8.26.70.252 or a Scour 63.209.69.107 site. I ran a full scan with my installed virus scan (McAfee). Nothing showed up. Downloaded Malware Bytes, SuperAntiSpyware, Dr Cure It, and AutoRun, ran them also and nothing showed up. I read in one of the forums about outdated versions of Adobe reader and Java. I deleted all versions of Apple Quick time, Adobe Reader, Flash and Java. I then re-installed Adobe from their website. I didn't re-install Java yet, without Java, the redirect goes only to the Scour 63.209.69.107 site. Any help will be appreciated.. Thanks

Not sure if you know how to boot from a live CD but BitDefender and Kaspersky each have there own version and they are pretty good. This might solve your problem, make sure you have a hard wired Ethernet connection and update them first. Also make sure to use the GUI interface.

BitDefender Live CD

Kaspersky Live CD

Hi C.L.C: Actually, I think that you fixed it. I created the Kaspersky and BirDefender Live Boot Cd's and ran them. Kaspersky found a Heur:Trojan.Win32.Generic entry. BitDefender also found something. I restarted and checked the links on Google search. Seems to be working fine now. No redirects... Thanks-a-million for the fast help.... Very appreciated!!

I'm glad I could help out, don't forget to update everything, especially your java since malware likes to attack outdated versions.
