Google Search Virus

  1. Hi,

    It looks like this is a problem for alot of people recently, but since last week, everytime I try to search for something in google, the headings will come up, but when I click on the link, it redirects me to another webpage. This is also the case when I search for something on Yahoo as those were the 2 search engines I tried.

    If you can please assist me in removing this virus, that was be greatly appreciated, as I use google frequently for my work.

    Thanks in advance, I have attached my hijack file below

    sounds like the tdss trojan. If you can download and install malwarebytes, that should clean it.. Also if you right click on the link displayed in the google search results and paste the url into browser that might work.

    Here is another method. You are discribing a case of difficulty.

    In case of difficulty, attempt this method (follow link for 'How To')
    • Message # 1 - Effective against other non-plug and play exploits
    • Message #3 - link to 'fixit download' has demonstrated its effectiveness in many cases. Go to message # 3 'fixit download'
