So I'm new to the forums, but I have been having problems resolving my redirect virus issue. It's been around for about a week and a half and got so bad I couldn't even use Google to figure out how to fix it. I use Windows 7 64 bit with Internet Explorer 9. Tried Chrome, didn't like it, uninstalled it and shortly after that had problems. I tried EVERY malware removal program and rootkit killer out there and none worked. I knew that the files were in my user folders but couldn't find them to get rid of them, even by showing my hidden and system folders. The solution ended up pretty easy. I created a new User account, reused the folders that actually contained documents, and deleted the old user files. Result? Happy surfing. As of yet I' have no more issues. Just wanted you to know another way if you're almost out of hair to pull out.
