Preferred Solution: Google blocks searching and asks to confirm that I'm not robot.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Google blocks searching and asks to confirm that I'm not robot.

Hello Christaps I would like to welcome you to the Malware Removal section of the forum.Around here they call me Gringo and I will be glad to help you with your malware problems.Very Important --> Please read this post completely, I have spent my time to put together somethings for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier, faster and smoother for both of us!Please do not run any tools unless instructed to do so.We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE: At the top of your post, click on the "Follow This Topic" Button, make sure that the "Receive notification" box is checked and that it is set to "Instantly" - This will send you an e-mail as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to resolve the issue faster.NOTE: Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planed. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer.NOTE: It is good practice to copy and paste the instructions into notepad and print them in case it is necessary for you to go offline during the cleanup process. To open notepad, navigate to Start Menu > All Programs > Accessories > Notepad. Please remember to copy the entire post so you do not miss any instructions.These are the programs I would like you to run next, if you have any problems with one of these just skip it and move on to the next one.-AdwCleaner-Please download AdwCleaner by Xplode onto your desktop.Close all open programs and internet browsers.Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.Click on Delete.Confirm each time with Ok.Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt as well.-Junkware-Removal-Tool-Please download Junkware Removal Tool to your desktop.Shut down your protection software now to avoid potential conflicts.Run the tool by double-clicking it. If you are using Windows Vista, 7, or 8; instead of double-clicking, right-mouse click JRT.exe and select "Run as Administrator".The tool will open and start scanning your system.Please be patient as this can take a while to complete depending on your system's specifications.On completion, a log (JRT.txt) is saved to your desktop and will automatically open.Post the contents of JRT.txt into your next message.When they are complete let me have the two reports and let me know how things are running.Gringo

Since my modem has been reset, one of my laptops cannot go anymore to google without having this error message:

404. That's an error.

The requested URL /cgi-bin/cgi?req=twz was not found on this server. That's all we know.

It's bizarre, because I never entered "/cgi-bin/cgi?req=twz" in the adress bar. Just: www.google.ca . I can confirm that this website is working on all other computers in the house.

Am I the only one who has this? How to solve this problem?

Thank you very much!

I think I have two problems and not sure if they are related, but the combination has made my computer unworkable.

First came the google redirect problem. I have been afraid to try to address it without being walked through the correction steps.

On the last start up, avg detected a threat. Chose to neutralize it. After another restart, avg and intel proset wireless utility were no longer in the icon tray as before. Tried to open both of those from the start menu, and with each the "open with which program" dialog box popped up. Tried with a few other programs (i.e. firefox and explorer) and got the same results. I browsed through and found the program file for firefox so I could open it to get online to solve this problem. Once I clicked on it though the "open with" box, was almost like firefox did a short reinstall.

Currently running a malwarebytes scan to see what that turns up.

O/S is windows xp and normal antivirus is avg free 2011.

Thanks in advance for the help.

You can call me by my screename jntkwx or Jason is fine.If you have any questions following these steps, feel free to ask for clarification (or if you cannot complete a step.)

Once in Safe Mode with Networking, download Rkill Run Rkill (renamed iExplore.exe).Please be patient while Rkill looks for various malware programs and ends them. When it has finished, the black window will automatically close and you can continue with the next step. If it appears like Rkill did not stop the malware from running, please try running RKill again until the malware is no longer running.

Hi,

This has never happened to me before. I was trying to fix a WordPress website (for the very first time), but now every time I Google something using the word "WordPress" I get the following message -

"Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot."

If I search "problem posting WordPress" - I get this message.
If I search "problem posting YouTube" - no message.

What is this......?

Ran Malwarebytes - no issues.

Thanks,

Hi,
I'm not sure where this question belongs to, so forgive me if I'm in the wrong place.

I seem to have a problem with google searching. When I google-search something it only gives me links to hijackthis logs. I even do the advance search, etc but still finding a lot unanswered search.

I was trying to search for items while fixing my own HJT log and also friends' logs.
So is there a trick to get a good result while using google? or is there a better search engines out there?
Thanks.

~Emily

A:Google searching an .exe or dll etc.

Hi Rose,So you're analyzing your own and your friend's logs, eh?Well, as a member of the Boot Camp at SWI, I learned that doing a Google search is a bit of a last resort, mostly because of all the unnecessary links it can give (like HJT logs at different forums.If you don't already know about this tutorial, here is a link to a very good one to help with analyzing logs:http://hometown.aol.co.uk/jrmc137/hjttutorial/tutorial.htmIt also gives links to HJTHot key, a good little program to aid in log analysis. Plus loads of information on what the entries are in the logs, where to go to research them and how to use SpywareBlaster to research as well.It's been recently updated and added to. Have you ever thought about joining the Boot Camp or any HJT training program such as they have at SpywareInfo, SpywareWarrior , etc?You can learn a lot and be more effective as well.Good luck!Deb

Hello,

I don't see a log from Gmer rootkit scanner, was there a problem with that?


Download GMER Rootkit Scanner from here to your desktop. Double click the exe file.
If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run scan...click on NO, then use the following settings for a more complete scan.



Click the image to enlarge it


In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Ensure the following are unchecked IAT/EAT
Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
Show All (don't miss this one)

Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "Gmer.txt" or it will save as a .log file which cannot be uploaded to your post.
Save it where you can easily find it, such as your desktop, and attach it in reply.

**Caution**
Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries

I am currently using Firefox. When I click on Google search results, I get redirected to a STOPzilla site. Additionally, MalwareBytes blocks the IP addresses 67.29.139.153 and 64.111.196.121 (apparently RBN's work). I've run MalwareBytes, Avast, and HitmanPro, and I thought I had killed the virus (or whatever it is) since there had been no problems yesterday, but today it came back and I was getting redirected again.

when searching google the boaring font used to display the results drags day in and day out i think it's either tahoma or veranda but i would like something else.

A:Font Used When Searching Google

The font Google uses is Arial.


The following is pure speculation; I haven't tried it, so I can't guarantee that it is without risk.

I can think of three ways you could accomplish this:

1. You get in contact with the people at Google and persuade/blackmail/threaten them into changing it into something more to your liking.

2. You use the Firefox extension Greasemonky to run a script over the Google page to change the font to something more to your liking.

3. You use some other program that uses the Google search engine and has a font more to your liking.


Of the three, I would look at Greasemonky. I don't know if it can do this but it is your best shot.

...but your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now.

Then I need to put some letters in a box before I can carry on.

I have looked other places and the only suggestion I could find was to clear my internet cache, which I did, or to delete my Google cookie, which I don't know where it is, but I deleted all my cookies so I'm assuming it went with the rest.

Any ideas?

I'm reaching my last resort. I can't download/install/run any spyware removal tools, nothing will run at all. I don't know what to do, google redirects, sluggishness, and odd behavior is wearing down my morale. I barely even know what I'm doing. The only thing I can seem to do is report a Hijackthis log, though I'm told I need to run a different detect/removal tool first, which seems impossible. Any ideas?

Hi guys and gals! I read through the "do this first" topic, and I was only able to get as far as running adaware and spybotSD. The problem I'm having is cutting me off from most of the ways I know how to fix things, so I'm way out of my league, here.The trojan keeps coming back, but I don't have the name of it just now, since it's currently gone. Or hiding. The bug has so far: 1) cut off all access to the internet to sites that might help me: ie) any of those antivirus scanners in the "do this first topic," and it is somehow preventing adaware and spybotSD from updating (they say they can't connect.) My internet WORKS, though. But a lot of it is blocked. I'm accessing THIS site from another computer, as it's blocked as well. 2) Hijacked google and made it so that any search brings up the results page, but all results are rerouted to some random set of jumps that usually end up trying to insta-download Antivir08 XP or someother malware.3) Reduced Norton Antivirus's abilities to scan. I run a full system scan, and it only scans 5000 items. (Normal scans would run 500,000+ previously.) It also has made it so that "scan this using Norton antivirus" always comes back as saying "no viruses" with 0 items actually being scanned.4) Lastly - this might be because of all the fiddling that I did trying to fix it - it's made the system less stable somehow, and a lot of programs (like adaware and HJT) stop randomly and end up crashing the compu...

Hello,

My problem is that I am being redirected to other sites when searching using Google.

I searched around and was told it is a redirection malware/virus that cannot be detected with my normal virus scanner.

I was also told I could use "Combofix", but not to use it unless directed to do so.

I really need access to my computer as I am a freelancer.

Should I use combofix? or is there anything else I should do?

Thanks.

A:Being Redirected to other sites when Searching on Google

Hi,

We first need to run diagnostic tools on your machine to see exactly what you have before we design a "fix".

Please do the following:

Please download DDS from either of these links

LINK 1
LINK 2

and save it to your desktop.Disable any script blocking protection
Double click dds to run the tool.
When done, two DDS.txt's will open.
Save both reports to your desktop.
---------------------------------------------------
Please include the contents of the following in your next reply:

DDS.txt
Attach.txt.
NEXT

Please download aswMBR ( 511KB ) to your desktop.Double click the aswMBR.exe icon to run it
Click the Scan button to start the scan
On completion of the scan, click the save log button, save it to your desktop and post it in your next reply.

Malwarebytes found PUP.BundleInstaller.BL to be part of HeliosPaint.exe. Initially I decided to ignore it but soon decided to remove it (by deletion of HeliosPaint.exe using Windows).

I tried a google search and found some links to information about PUP.BundleInstaller.BL, but when visiting the links, they were dead ends, giving no information. The HeliosPaint installer has been sitting unused on the computer for a few days, and ultimately I never ran this installer; instead deleting it several minutes after the Malwarebytes scan session. If anyone knows about these, either the PUP... or HeliosPaint.exe, I am interested to know the details. Like I said, google search showed me nothing informative.

A Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP) is a very broad threat category which can encompass any number of different programs to include those which are benign as well as malicious. They may also be defined somewhat differently by various security vendors.Sophos: Potentially unwanted applicationsLavasoft: What are Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPS)?Eset: What are Potentially Unwanted Applications? - Eset Online Scanner FAQs: #14McAfee White Paper: Potentially Unwanted ProgramsAVG FAQ 2340: Potentially Unwanted ProgramsSome programs falling into the PUP category have legitimate uses in contexts where an authorized user or administrator has knowingly installed it. When flagged by an anti-virus or security scanner, it's because the program includes features, behavior or files (compressed, packed) that appear suspicious or which can potentially be used for malicious purposes. Compressed and packed files in particular are often flagged as suspicious by security software because they have difficulty reading what is inside them. Other legitimate files which may be obfuscated, encrypted or password protected in order to conceal itself so they do not allow access for scanning but often trigger alerts by anti-virus software. This type of detection does not necessarily mean the file is malware or a bad program.

appreciated
 

A:Stop google searching old content

You bet, Google has a lot of settings you can change, the easiest way is to use the Search Tools button to get to it:

Then you click on Any Time and set the date range.

There's also Advanced search: https://www.google.ca/advanced_search

As well as search operators: https://support.google.com/websearch/answer/2466433?hl=en

Greetings!

I have Windows XP and Firefox is my main browser. I have a search question about Google. Why is it that sometimes in Google Search results the address bar in Firefox not only shows the search information, but also ISP locations, for example 123.45.678, 122.00.001 shows up in the address bar to the right of the searches in Google. Sometimes this happens, most times not. I read somewhere this happens to people in Chrome as well. What data is being sent? (The ISP's above are for illustration only.)

Satch
 

A:ISP's in Address Bar When Google Searching Sometimes (Firefox)

Just a quick technical note: an ISP is a company that connects you to the internet.
Those addresses are called IP addresses (no S), and identify a specific computer on the internet. There's no telling what computer it is, or why it is important, without knowing the actual IP being referenced.

Could you post a screenshot of this so I can see exactly what you're seeing?

Recently, I have been experiencing browser redirects when I search using Google, or other search engines. The search results are displayed, but when clicking on a link, it redirects me to a different, unwanted site (usually some type of shopping/advertising site, such as shoppingtiger or shopica). When I type the web address directly into the address bar, it takes me to the correct site.
Before finding this site for assistance, I ran Malwarebytes anti-malware program, Ad-aware program, and SuperAnti-spyware program to try to remove the problem. However, even though those programs found infected files and removed them, I am still having the same problem.
Upon finding this site, I have not done anything else to try to fix this problem, but did perform the HijackThis scan and below is the log. I appreciate any help you could offer. Thank you!

Hi, I seem to be having a problem very similar (perhaps identical?) to the one described here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/218020/firefox-google-search-hijack/I can run Malwarebytes when I rename the mbam.exe file. At first it found ~40 problems, but when I fixed them I'm still being redirected with my Google searches, I still cannot run Spybot S&D, and when I run the GooredFix.exe program described in the above link, it doesn't find anything. My log is: GooredFix v1.92 by jpshortstuffLog created at 10:59 on 10/04/2009 running Option #1 (forser5)Firefox version 3.0.8 (en-US)=====Suspect Goored Entries==========Dumping Registry Values=====[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\Mozilla Firefox 3.0.8\extensions]"Plugins"="C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins"[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Mozilla\Mozilla Firefox 3.0.8\extensions]"Components"="C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\components"I can post a HijackThis log if that would help. This is quite frustrating, as you can imagine, and any help would be great. Thanks.

Hi there,

So for the past few weeks I have been dealing with some kind of virus. It started out by prompting a fake XP security virus scanner on my desktop, which I would immediately end the process of. It stopped me from going onto the internet as it would redirect me almost constantly. A week or so ago my boyfriend got PC Tools Spyware Doctor onto my PC and after successfully running a scan and.. semi-successfully removing everything it found (It would always stall partway through the removal), The XP security security virus scanner thing stopped opening, but as it was unable to remove everything, it was clear that all was not well yet. iTunes, at this point, would open, but was invisible. I could see it in the processes, but was unable to visually see it on the screen. We (boyfriend and I) got Malwarebytes and got rod of whatever it found. iTunes was okay once again. Saddly, Spyware Dr was still unable to delete everything it would find (Mostly tracking cookies, and a possible website hijack, i believe). A friend suggested Spybot S+D, so I got that, ran the scan, and deleted whatever it found. Spyware Dr. is now able to run fully through it's deletion process, though it now says that it was unsuccessful in removing everything (again, the cookies and possible hijack thing). Also, Spyware Dr consistently warns me of "bad sites" that it is blocking, and asking me if I want to block them forever, or allow them. The strange part of that is that 90% of the time i...

I have a client that has an intermittent problem with accessing google from multiple computers on what seems a random basis. At first we thought it was linked to sending email from within Quickbooks but yesterday it was all 3 computers. It is specific to google.com and gmail pages, they get a 404 error. When this occurs it is only google us, all other web pages work and google.co.uk will work. So far we have:
-Scanned for malware with multiple scanners, both offline and online;
-Updated all browsers to current release;
- All browsers are affected, IE, FF, Chrome;
-flushed DNS and removed all add-ons, renewed all certificates;
-Turned on and off AV programs, firewalls, etc;
When it occurs it will return to working for no apparent reason after random amounts of time. The client does have a google business (paid) gmail account.
Has anyone experienced this problem? If so, please enlighten me
Thanks,

Hello,
 
some malicious code prevents my Firefox from accessing google.com; browser tries then says "The server at
google.com is taking too long to respond." Same for encrypted.google.com and forums.malwarebytes.org =( Any other sites from my everyday list are accessed OK. Except for Wikipedia since it only works via HTTPS and malware seems to block any https:// requests.
 
My proxy and firewall aren't messing with it, in fact, the proxy doesn't see any requests for affected sites. But from the Opera i was able to connect and post this panic message here! =) Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is unable to start due to the problem described here: https://forums.malwa...howtopic=140731 to which nobody cared to answer. SpyBot found no threats. Disabling all the plugins in firefox didn't help. What can i do? Please reply something?
