yanda, Be aware that a virus and a Trojan are similar, but not the same. Many times, an AV detects one it can't clean, other times, it gets missed entirely.
If you need to clean one, Superantispyware (info only. I’m not paid for recommendation. WARNING! FYI, a full scan on mine takes over an hour.) can do the job and you can get it free @:
among other places. They have a Vista compatible version if needed. Dunno about Windows 7 or later.
If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update Superantispyware prior to running. Disable 'restore' after cleaning and run it again (to remove any nasties living there, restart after cleaning) so the nasty doesn't get put back should you later ‘restore’. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.
The restore thing is critical. May not be your deal at all, but won't hurt anything to try

Ed I have tried just about every anti-malware, anti-virus program I can think of from other forums suggestions. Here are the ones I have used : Malwarebytes, Hitman Pro 3.5, Super Anti-Spyware, Kaspersky TDSS Killer, McAfee Stinger and Avast. I'm still getting redirected from google to this website. I dont know what else to do. I was going to do a system restore but unfortunately I don't have a point to go back to when this redirect started. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks, Clinton from Texas.

FYI - Our company, which has a wireless ISP with 15 IPs, was also affected by the "" or "" Google redirection starting December 3rd 2010.

After 6 weeks of intense scrutinization and scanning of all our servers and workstations, we were at our wits end trying to locate it.We then tested our Sonicwall TZ210W for possible contamination by performing various tests including restoring it to default settings, disconnecting out network, and plugging a single laptop to the Sonicwall and creating a single gateway - the redirection still occurred.

We then bypassed the Sonicwall with the laptop, assigning the laptop a single IP and ISP gateway settings. The redirection still occurred providing us with the confidence that our Sonicwall was clean. In addition we tested our Internet DNS servers from outside our office and found no trace of the redirection, thus indicating that the contamination may be in our ISPs network.

We then contacted our ISP.

Tests by our ISP indicated that their router attached to our antenna was compromised (breached). Their tech reset their router/converter and the redirect issue cleared up entirely.

We hope this helps anyone who has this nasty rouge redirecting issue
