    Damn google!!

    I am getting so $#@!ing tired of searching for something, and getting redirected to another stupid site, or trying to search anything through google, and it thinks I'm a bot so I have to type in a word that appears in a box, but it never goes away!??!

    Is someone else having this problem, if so how the hell do I make it go away?

    Yes sounds liek the "google redirect"

    Hereís what it does:

    First, the virus infects your computer. Youíll never know it though, since the virus doesnít do all that much on its own.

    But go to Google (who doesnít do this at least once a day?) and things start to change. See, the virus is designed to redirect all the links you get in a Google result. So youíll be searching just like you do every day, but youíll start seeing that the links you click arenít taking you to where they should.

    Instead, they take you to dangerous sites that are waiting to inject your computer with a serious dose of malware. Then, youíll take your computer into the shop to get rid of the malware.

    Great, no more malware! But you still have that redirect virus on your computer. Yes, this means that next time you search on Google, the problem happens all over again!

    It can be incredibly frustrating.

    Now, when most people come across this problem, they get all upset at Google. Googleís a multi-billion dollar company, why canít they stop petty hackers from ruining their search results?

    Well, itís because the problemís not on Googleís end. Remember, this is a virus you got on your computer. A virus that redirects all your search results to vicious spyware infested websites.

    Yeah I had this ages ago, turns out it was my router acting up and had to do a factory settings reset. It affected a lot of people too, people couldn't sign in to google and stuff.

    Yes its definantly a virus.
    Using other engines doesn't remove it there may be one that it doesn't affect but it will still be there.

    Try combofix.

    http://www.combofix.org/

    When I was IT manager at my last firm, this tool was successful at ridding 3 instances of the google redirect virus.

    Problem with the virus is, not all of it gets removed with any one program. PLUS, some variants of it must be manually removed.

    It creates at least two directories buried in a system folder. the folders are alphanumeric strings of about 20 letters and numbers. Inside is the core of the redirect. On the nastier versions of it, it replicates itself so even if you kill one directory, there is likely another.

    Just keep at it, you can get rid of it.
