?virus redirecting all my google search results

in Techie Stuff
8 replies 740 views
Hi wondering if someone can help!

When I click on a google search result, I am sent to random websites. If I 'back' and try again it usually sends me to the right website on the 3rd or 4th attempt. Have tried Trojan remover, Malwarebytes anti-malware, spybot search and destroy and avast. Also run windows defender and microsoft security essentials. AVG was replaced by all of the above after the problem started and I was in a mood...!! am using Vista and ie8. Have had other problems as well but these seem to have stopped, including- v slow running computer/programmes freezing/various windows errors, particularly 'cardspace'.

any ideas? Can give more information if you tell me how :rolleyes:

Thanks in advance,
Debs

    My first thought is that you have a rogue IE add-on.

    I'd reset all of the IE settings to default. You can do this in a few clicks:
    1. Click Tools -> Internet Options
    2. Click the 'Advanced' Tab
    3. Click 'Restore Advanced Settings'
    4. and finally, click 'Reset...' at the bottom,
    5. ...and check the 'delete personal settings' box.
    6. When that's done, close and restart IE to test.
    As it says, this will delete all your cookies etc., so any website that require log in and you have the passwords cached, you will have to re-enter them.

    See if that works as a quick fix...
  • Thankyou!!!

    Glad your up and running

    Any trouble at all and post back here

    (If you want a double check you could run Dr Web ~ upto you)

    Turn your anti virus OFF
    Click CANCEL to the 'Would you like to read purchase terms now?' message
    Click START click OK
    It will auto QUICK scan
    After that set to scan the WHOLE computer and press the 'play' icon

    ***DO NOT UPGRADE TO FULL VERSION***
