Solved I have a redirect virus, looking for a quicker fix.

Specs: Windows XP
Hey. I'm getting a redirect virus. It's also trying to play sounds, but the sounds are corrupted and only end up saying 'ch'. This is a second hand computer that I've recently purchased. I've run AVG and malwarebytes. Was going to try AV, but then I thought it would be easier to contact you guys.

Thanks in advance.

✔ Best Answer
redirects are fairly easy to remove...try running these 3 free progs in EXACTLY the order listed. Sounds like you have an unwanted rootkit installed that needs removing...
1- rkill.exe
2- tdss killer
3- Malwarebytes
Fix all they find and then reboot.
If that doesn't fix the redirect, try the SAME, only this time in safe mode with networking.

Let me know how you make out...there are some other quick scans that can be run also...good luck...
