  1. Hi guys,

    I believe I have some sort of google redirect virus. I do a google search and no matter what I click on I get redirect to a bunch of adware junk. I'm tried everything and have subsequently removed lots of malware but it still hasn't fixed the problem. :) This virus also appears to have blocked me from certain sites to include microsoft.com; I've looked at the /etc/hosts file and it only has the one localhost line... please feel free to help if you have a minute. I've been fighting this for 3 days now.

    I followed the 8 steps and here are the log files from all the latest scanning i've done:

    Hi,

    Here's the latest HijackThis file. I've ran it through automatic analyzers and it appears that everything is friendly, but I still can't use google without it redirecting me to adware/malware. My computer is downright unusuable. It's still blocking me from Microsoft.com as well... it gives me the following error:
    Bad Request
    HTTP Error 400. The request is badly formed.

    This virus is insane... wow.

    Here's the file:

    Anything you guys can do to help would be extremely helpful. I'm at my wit's end and the only thing left to try for me is reinstalling the entire operating system and starting over. I'm unfortunately using windows VISTA. :-(

    Thanks in advance!
    Derek
