Specs: Windows XP
Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone could help me I've recently started getting redirected on my gf laptop to this site gomeo and am not sure how to combat it. The steps I took were to run super anti spyware and malware bytes which took a few viruses off but Gomeo is still an issue when surfing the net, any suggestions welcome?

"super anti spyware and malware bytes which took a few viruses off"

That statement cannot be true as those products do NOT remove viruses...they remove spyware and adware.
Try these 2 free fully functional trials and remove all they find
1-Trojan remover
2- Hitman Pro
Once they run clean you can remove them in 'all programs' NOT in add remove or they will not get removed, you have to use their own uninstallers for those 2.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

hi ollieflips
i just fix a mates laptop with Gomeo Redirect
i'm no export but this is what keep happening, each time i google i was redirected to Gomeo site.
there was no antivirus on the laptop so i suspect it was downloaded from a dubious site.
i downloaded free avg 2011 onto a usb stick from another pc and install it onto the laptop. ran virus scanner and found near on 200 infections. then i ran avg rootkit scanner and found one, this is the main problem if you don't fix this you will keep getting problems.

avg rootkit report:
irp hook,\filesystem\ntfs irp_mj_create -> tluihi.sys +0x2670

tluihi.sys this could be a different file on your laptop but the result is the same.

but at this stage avg won't be able to fix the problem you will need something stronger like tdsskiller.

application i used are:
1/ Malwarebytes-antimalware free version
2/ tdsskiller
3/ free avg 2011
4/ i found this link good for extra help with malwarebytes - deals with infected 'host file'. it related to another security issue (rogue anti-spyware program) but the info can be applied here too.

what to do:
1/ most important! get to safemode with networking (f8 at boot up) and
2/ run Tdsskiller as an administrator, i got three infected files related to the rootkit- choose delete but don't reboot yet.
3/ now run malwarebytes as administrator quick scan will do view results and select remove. when finish reboot. that's it.

however you might not be able to get into 'safemode with networking' due to the infection. i kept getting directed to windows in normal mode.
so i went to 'safemode' and follow the three steps above. seemingly this fools the the rootkit temporary. now restart and enter 'safemode with networking' and follow the three steps above.

you should now install free avg 2011 (or any AV) to prevent future infections.

i,m not technically minded but i'm persistant. i hope this helps.
