Mod Edit: Moved to the Am I Infected forum from WIN 8 ~~ boopme
So recently everyone in my house started having this redirect virus. Eventually, a friend came over and his google searches redirected him to a malicious site pretending to be a "Flash Player Update". We didn't even exanged files through pen-drives, he simply connected to my router and started getting redirected.
For some reason I put the router cable that was in the n°1 entry in another entry (n°2) and it stopped happening. Two days after it happened again, and no matter what entry I put the cable IT DOESN'T work anymore.
I did a whole virus search with avira, and found nothing that fixed the problem.
I did a search with adwcleaner and found a lot of stuff, also nothing fixed the problem.
I reset the router multiple times, and still we are faced with the same problem.
In my computer specifically, i found some registry entries that mentioned "doubleclick.net", "s.ytimg", and some other adware crap. I deleted them. That did stop my BING researches from being faked, but didn't stop the google and youtube redirection I'm having.
Now, I don't know what to do anymore. I don't have any clue. Help, anyone?
Apologies, apparently I didn't post this at the right place in the forum. Would someone put this in the right place please? I can't delete this and my browsers are barely working so its hard for me to start another thread in the malware forum.
