Google redirect virus

April 7, 2011 at 14:31:30
Specs: Windows XP
Have a real problem with redirect (virus?) in both in google and (most notably) in blogs. Have run AVG and Malwarebytes Anti malware anti-malware which cleared a virus sometime ago but redirecting still occurs. Here is the HiJack this report. IS there anything I should repair/delete? Thanks

Do this for me:

Go to the following directory:
You will see a file called "hosts". it does not have an extension.
Open the hosts file in notepad. Notepad will allow you to open this file even though it doesn't have an extension.

Paste what is in the hosts file in this thread.

OK - I've included a portion (a-c):

# Copyright (c) 1993-1999 Microsoft Corp.
# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
# For example:
# # source server
# # x client host localhost
# Start of entries inserted by Spybot - Search & Destroy ALL1COUNT.NET www.ALL1COUNT.NET br.

I posted a how to on but it needs approval or something. I just made a quick tutorial fix on my website which is a replica of what I posted on the how-to on this site. Should help you out.

Please let me know if it does or doesn't. Your hosts file is corrupt.
