Redirect virus (+ potentially Cycbot.b)

Specs: Windows Vista

I have a Dell Dimention 9300 running on Vista. A week ago, i started seeing the redirect when clicking on lyahoo or google links. I ran the Windows Defender who found Cycbot,b.

I ran malwarebytes who found infection and cleaned it...I thought. Then I found that both my laptops connected wirelessly on my network had the same redirect problem (but MBAM found nothing)

I ran MBAM, Unhijack me and a lot of other programs who are findinf nothing.

I even formatted both my hard drive, reinstalled windows but I still have the problem.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

this program is often downloaded in conjunction with cycbot.b

it might be worth looking into.

I will solve my own thread, thanks to a link i found by luck.

My Computer was CLEAN. it was my router that had been hijacked. When I called Orange (my ISP) they said it was impossible but then I went to verify my DNS which gave me a location in Russia...

I reset the DNS, changes my router password more redirect problem.

Just for all to know, if you tries reformating HD and virus comes back, check your router...

All the best
