google links redirect me

March 17, 2011 at 11:16:34
Specs: Windows Vista
Google links redirect me to completely random pages. I've run Malwarebytes and TDSSKiller, both of which say I'm now clean. Malwarebytes did find trojans, including Trojan.Hiloti (twice), Trojan.Alureon, and Trojan.Agent.U, but they have been removed. Despite this, the links keep taking me to random pages. Any suggestions?

Try downloading and running these utilities in the exact order
1- rkill.exe (kills the malware process)
2- TDSS killer (removes unwanted rootkits if found)
3- Malwarebytes
run in full scan and fix all it finds, then reboot

Also run trojan remover and fix all it finds

Thanks for the response. You said "run trojan remover and fix all it finds". Is there a specific one that would be good?

I followed the exact instructions from XpUser4Real in the exact order yesterday. However, this morning a Google link redirected me again so I guess it was unsuccessful. Perhaps now I'll try the previous list from Johnw.

try it in safe mode in the same order. You may have to turn off system restore as it may be hiding in there.
I would also suggest running Hitman Pro

I'm not exactly computer savvy, so forgive me if this is a stupid question. To enter safe mode, I need to hit one of the F keys while the computer is rebooting, right?

I also ran Combofix from the first suggestion and it found/removed something called "catchme", so maybe that could have been it. But I'm all for trying the above steps in safe mode just to be sure.

"To enter safe mode"

Start > Help and Support, type in safe mode into search & hit > Enter.
