Solved The click check virus is on my pc

September 12, 2011 at 13:35:56
Specs: Windows XP

I have the google redirect/"click check" virus on my computer. I have run Malwarebytes, which found nothing, and also Hijack This, which provided data I'm not sure how to interpret or make useful. It seems I've got it pretty bad. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated...thanks!

(and yes, I have read previous entries on this same problem, but the "fix" seems to vary from computer to computer)

✔ Best Answer

if it's a redirect, most fixes are similar.
Try these 3 in the Exact order as listed:
1- rkill.exe
2- TDSS killer
3- Malwarebytes (full scan)
fix all they find and don't reboot untill the last scan is done

BillShakespeare
did you try response #1? If there is an unwanted rootkit uinstalled, that should help remove it. I have been doing PC repairs for 10 yrs now.

Boy, that is funny! All redirects can be removed in easy steps.
Anyone that recommends the Geek Squad really is mixed up....they are the biggest rip-off for PC repairs.

If response #1 doesn't work, post back as there are other free softwares that will fix your problem.

Xp, thanks for the reply.

I tried the "rkill" rootkit, which found and "killed" one program (i can dig up the log if you like)...

Then, ran the TDSSkiller, which found nothing...

While I was running the malwarebytes scan (again), Microsoft Security Essentials popped up with a series of warnings ("1 potential threat found on your computer, please click to remove," for example)--I suspended the malwarebytes search, went into Essentials, and had the threats removed successfully (however, there were a few more "threat warnings" from Essentials before it finally stopped altogether). I completed the malwarebytes scan, which found nothing.

Unfortunately, the redirect is still active, disabling me from following links on google...oddly, SOME links work, but it seems the majority redirect on me.

So, what do you think?

Thanks again.

MSE is not the best and extremely hard to remove from the registry.
Try Trojan Remover and Hitman Pro and fix all they find

xp,

thanks again. I had trouble with the installation of Trojan Remover (didn't work, and it was later detected as malware [!!] even though I downloaded it from Cnet), but Hitman Pro seems to have done the trick...at least that seems to be the case...I'm able to "google" normally and the other ancillary problems related to this malware have stopped (like an adobe popup that wouldn't quit...).

I guess I'll just keep an eye on things for now, look out for anomalies and act accordingly...

Thanks again, and if there are any other things you advise, I'm all ears.

Malwarebytes is a GREAT program for removing virus + Malware but it will not work on this virus as the original poster mentioned. (xpuser4real must not have read the post)

Bill- you're going to need someone to manually remove this infection from your computer. I would recommend your local Microsoft Certified Tech or even Geek Squad or something. The infection you have is beyond software repair.

-Hope that helps.

I downloaded trojan remover, which found nothing wrong. I have had the click check problem for some time. I work around it by clicking in the address bar and pressing enter which bypasses the redirect. If I leave the computer on and alone for some time the browser opens multiple redirect windows which I just close. I use Firefox.

Why does no one report success in removing this problem?

I guess most people don't read a post all the way, response #1 is done that way and ALL the progs mentioned are used to remove the problem...NOT just Malwarebytes.

If it doesn't work in normal mode...try response #1 in safe mode....

rw3224, why not open your OWN thread (post) as we know NOTHING about your PC specs, etc

I have a Dell Vostro 1500 laptop bought at least three years ago. It has Symantic Corporate Client installed on it. I had fewer problems before I started job searching and taking the laptop to school. I installed Firefox following advice I got. I installed Google Chrome because a teacher liked it. I attach an external hard drive rarely for backup and to move photographs. I have about seven gigabytes free left on the hard drive.

I run Windows xp.

I think the Click Check redirect is some modification of Firefox files which are retained from update to update.
