Google redirect even after total reformat

By teeniz52

  1. All 3 PCs on my home network have some sort of virus where google links are being redirected. This is not happening on the 2 macs I have on my home network. I went ahead and reformatted one of my PCS, however, right after i reformatted it and opened the internet, it began redirecting my search... What should I do? Is this a problem with my individual computers or with the network as a whole?

    Thanks for the help!

    Sounds to be on your network, and it's being transferred into any freshly formatted computer

    I'd say have a look at this guide:
    UPDATED 8-step Viruses/Spyware/Malware Preliminary Removal Instructions
    Download and update all programs

    Then disconnect both computers from the network
    And do all the scans
    Please note, in this case I don't want to see two lots of logs
    Just let me know how it all is, once complete
