Gmail and google virus??

July 5, 2010 at 19:27:12
Specs: Windows XP
I can not access gmail online. Everytime I try to acces the page I receive the following warning:
There is a problem with this website's security certificate.

The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority.
The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different website's address.

When I click to proceed anyway, I then get a page not found error

Also when I try to perform a google search I recieve incorrect results and results that direct me to different search engines.

I have checked my date and time settings. They are correct. I have made the site a trusted site.

All indications are that I have a "Google virus" I have tried malware and virus removals but am still getting the same problem.

Definitely sounds like a virus. You should ready up on more
steps to remove the virus (check out ComboFix,
Malwarebytes Antimalware, and SuperAntiSpyware Portable).

Truthfully you should handle the virus before doing anything on
the computer to avoid further risk. However if you need to get
gmail going now, try these steps:

1. Install a new browser and try that. Maybe Google Chrome.
2. Check for a Proxy Server. Go to Control Panel -> Internet
Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings -> Proxy Server. Or
Internet Explorer -> Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections
> LAN Settings -> Proxy Server). Make sure there is no
proxy server set up.
3. Create a new profile in Windows (Control Panel -> User

Remember, the real need is to remove the virus first.
Otherwise it's going to get worse and take over the computer.
Additionally, if you were to successfully access Gmail, you
may give away your password as there may be a keylogger
on your computer. In fact, I would go to another computer
and change your gmail password right away...

Computer Courage - Thank you. ComboFix appeared to do the job. I had tried HitMan Pro previously which was supposed to be the one but it wasn't. ComboFix - great job! Thanks again
