Hello, and thank you for your time!!!


My mother seems to have picked up the google redirect virus this morning, and I have been trying to fix it.


Firstly, she uses windows security essentials, which will not run or open currently.


I did a full scan with SUPERANTISPYWARE, but that didn't fix it for long....like, a few searches on google.


Then I tried using Spyhunter 4, but found out I have to pay to use it.


I need help to get this off, in a way that is not too high-tech, and also free. AND, it's hard to use the search to find help and download things, since I just keep getting redirected to random sites.


Anyone have directions???


SORRY...I realized this was in the wrong section....so I posedt it there as well. Feel free to delete this, thank you.
