I am afflicted by some sort of redirect virus, and I have run Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware, SUPERAntispyware, and AVAST, none of which have fixed the problem. I also ran ComboFix, and it did not fix the problem. Any Suggestions?
Yeah, whenever I do any sort of search on google (or other search engine) if I try to click on one of the links that comes up, I am somehow redirected to some other bogus site which has nothing to do with the site I was trying to access.
I have now followed these steps, both in regular mode and in safe mode, and have had no success. I am still afflicted with the problem. RKill found and deleted 2 things on the first attempt and 1 the second time (in safe mode) and TDSS Killer didn't find anything on either attempt and neither did Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware.
I have already run Hitman Pro without finding anything. But I will run again. Do you have a safe link for downloading Trojan Remover. I'm a little scared to just google trojan remover and then trust one of the links that comes up.
I just used hitman pro to get rid of the redirect virus. It deleted a malware the first time I ran it, but I still had the problem. I decided to run Hitman Pro again. The second time I told it to delete all "suspicious" files that its default setting said to ignore the first time around. Now the problem is gone. It cost $20 and about 30 minutes of my time once I decided to use it.
