Preferred Solution: i caught the clap aka browser redirect google crome

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A short while back I had the fake "scanner" site popup. Got out w/o going to any other site, at least not knowingly . On my next boot up I noticed a bunch of ave.exe processes opening up! Nooooooo!!!

Hello,

I have been reading some forums and looking for an answer but I thought I should just start fresh. I am having a problem with google redirect and firefox. IE doesn't seem to be and issue, but both are still running verrrrrrry slow. With firefox, clicking on links in google will direct me to random sites, sometimes dealing wtih my original google search but cleary not what I clicked on. I can only go back to google search if a double click really fast. No other problems besides that and super slow internet. In my frusteration I un-installed firefox and having been using a super slow IE, telling me the virus or whatever is most likely still here.

I tried malwarebytes and have even updated and scanned agained. I also tryed tdss killer and nothing was found with that either either. Help would be greatly appriciated!

Thanks
Tara

I am putting my logs together as we speak. But BleepinBlonde or Elise helped me out last time. I think I must have closed the case way too soon. But, its strange. It all falls into place now, 3 times, same virus, worse each time. But it always starts up bad when I download the new Microsoft Office Beta 2010. Now, its Microsoft.com that I go to to get this puppy and I like the features but it crashes and I believe its /en-US/ sysmbols for its Malware or English American translation from a normal website to an alternate one sometimes. That really is their symbol they had them everywhere on this computer in files and everything. But I go to Microsoft.com and it looks legit, I mean did it never update correctly or is it just full of buds so much that it will have loopholes just as bad sometimes for networking hackers? At first it made no sense but now it sort of does. All the hyjacked versions I heard were getting these massive holes before it was Beta Tested and really during. Well I have no other way to explain it. I mean i'm not downloading anyhting outwardly and never have, it really does appear just after I put that Beta Program Microsoft 2010 on my computer given to me by Microsoft of all people and it just starts manifesting then it just multiples.

Now that your log is properly posted (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic317287.html), you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MR Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.To avoid confusion, I am clo... Read more

Seemed to have caught the redirect virus. It redirects to other websites from google, it doesn't do it on every one so sometimes I think I get rid of it but then it will come back. I've tried everything I could find posted by other people on the internet. Tried Malwarebytes, Hitman Pro 3.5, Avast, TDDsKiller, McAfee (my usual virus protection), Microsoft Security Essentials, SpyDoctor, etc. etc.. I uninstalled McAfee and tried the Microsoft to see if that would catch something. At times the programs have caught stuff but it just seems to come back. I've tried other things that I've seen online about it like resetting the router, flushing DNS, etc. Nothing seems to be working. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi, welcome to TSF

From http://www.google.com/support/chrome...&answer=117804

Quote:




Installation issues: Error 101

Issue
These errors occur when the Google Chrome installer is unable to create a temporary directory on your computer during the installation process.

Solution
Check the permission for your temporary folder.

1. Go to the Start menu > Run.
2. Enter one of the following directories in the text field:
* Windows XP: %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings
* Windows Vista: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local
3. Click OK.
4. In the window that opens, right-click the Temp folder.
5. Select Properties.
6. Click the Security tab.
7. In the "Group or user names" section, select your user profile name.
8. In the permissions section, verify that the checkboxes for "Read," "Write," and "Read & Execute" permissions in the "Deny" column are not selected.
9. Click Apply.
10. Click OK.

Try installing the browser again.






Also, check your security programs settings. See here for more details: http://www.google.co.uk/support/foru...b40aa781&hl=en

Hello,

I have been having a massive headache for the past few weeks, something very small is having a big impact!
As part of my work I need to subscribed to and receive notifications through my browser Crome. Recently the notification stopped coming through. When I have gone to subscribe to the notification via the website, the page just freezes, then disappears having not subscribed me. During this "freeze" their is some information which I can access, I have taken some screen shots so you can see.

https://snag.gy/zC5XA0.jpg
https://snag.gy/DnWmqF.jpg

It appears it is saying that the content is not secure, is blocking mixed content? Is there a way I can change my settings to allow these notifications? These notifications are soooooooooooooo important to me!

I am using Crome and the dreaded windows 10.

Chrome is not a file browser - which is what you appear to be using it for.
You should use Windows Explorer ('Computer' NOT Internet Explorer) for browsing files on your own computer.

I'm running a laptop with Win 8 & Google Crome and like the software to save my passwords which it is doing except for Gmail. It will not save them. Matter of fact the option box does not even pop up for me to try and save them. It will work for all other sites so is there a setting somewhere that I need to change to allow ALL passwords to be saved. If there is I can't find it and it's driving me nuts because I have to check my accounts numerous times each day. " Offer to save passwords I enter on the web " is selected in the Crome settings.

If tabs...
Close all but the tab with the URL you want to open as your start window.
In the upper right, (below the [x] to close Chrome),
you will see an icon that is three horizontal bars.
Click this. (Left click!)
Go down to "settings" (near the bottom of the list), Left Click.
It will open a new tab.
In the second section (On Startup) you will see three options.
The third is "Open a specific page or set of pages".
Left click the link to "set pages"

I have a computer that has 2 GB of RAM at 1066 MHz which is 1 yr. old, when I use google chrome, firefox and CS5 at the same time it only uses 61-65% memory, its weird that you only have one page open on chrome and it uses 200 MB memory, Are your browsers up to date? If not update it. I think it has something to do with your RAM, probably you have a memory leak from what I know. What are the extension and add-ons in your chrome that is using that much RAM? I have 32-bit W7 when its idle it uses 20% memory.

I'm running Win XP, SP3 with newest/updated McAfee and Spybot. I have the following symptoms:

- Firefox and IE both redirect occasionally when I click on a google link to a spam site. When the redirect happens it looks greatly like this (which I snagged off another post in this forum).
- Routinely services within Windows are stopping (or never starting) including the Windows Audio Service, Plug & Play and WMI. I run services.msc, manually start the service (adjusting to 'automatic' if disabled), but have to do it again after rebooting, or leaving the machine alone for a while.
-(related to the prior symptom) my Network Magic networking software only runs intermittantly.

I've run sweeps with McAfee, Spybot, Malwarebytes, Goored and all turn up nothing. The redirects are annoying, but not scary. But the fact that various services are being disabled scares me.

HJT logfile follows - and I have a Malwarebytes log as well.

Hi there, a day or two ago I clicked on some google image link and AVG picked up a few trojan threats - and I though AVG had saved me. About a day later I noticed that google searches were redirecting to random ad websites. It seems to happen in IE8 (my usual browser) more often than firefox, but it does happen in both. I have been trying to fix this with AVG scans, and then with Malwarebytes, Hijackthis, and Superantispyware.

This paragraph may be unimportant:

I installed 'Spyware doctor' for the 1st time, which required me to uninstall AVG, so I did... and learned that the program wasn't free. Thats when I uninstalled it and got the other programs (Malwarebytes, Hijackthis, and Superantispyware), and then when the virus didnt fix with any of those, I reinstalled AVG only to find that something was conflicting, and accidentally let it quarantine an important file (something along the lines of NT.dll) - which caused windows.explorer to fail upon startup (I would get an error message and just a pure black screen) - luckily the task manager worked still (so I could still run anything with a cmd prompt or 'new task'), and when I tried to run explorer.exe AVG would keep finding trojans (I think these were false-positives from my new conflicting anti-virus software) - so I restored the files I had deleted from AVG's vault and uninstalled AVG to remove the conflict, so now the windows.explorer problem is gone and my desktop is back to normal.

Ok...I am a newbie but here it goes: I recently experienced browser redirecting and, after extensive research, my computer appears to be infected with the "Google Redirect Virus."

Each time a select a link when searching within a browser (using Google, Yahoo, etc...), the browser redirects me to a non-related website. ComboFix appears to be the remedy; however, many posts suggested not activating such a program without expert assistance.

Please let me know if you can help.

Hello all, and thank you in advance for helping me.

My computer problems started about a week ago. I was downloading a free trial of Microsoft Word 10 from microsoft.com and mid-way through installation I got a number of "Fatal errors" then my computer was wiped clean. All my programs, music, pictures etc. were gone. I was able to do a system restore and get most of it back, except the pictures.

Since then anytime I do an engine search, and select a link from the search I get redirected to various sites. Along with that, my computer keeps randomly trying to restart and states that it has to force the background programs to close before it can restart. I get a number of google and other pop ups and every time I re-open my internet explorer browser my protected mode is automatically changed to "off" no matter how many times I change it. I tried stopzilla, malwarebytes, and combofix in safe mode. The only thing that seemed to help for a short period of time was stopzilla. When I ran stopzilla it listed 32 infections including "Google redirector". My computer seemed back to normal for about a day, then went right back to it's sick self. I feel like my computer is sick and full of virus!

Hi,

About a month ago I started having this problem. Almost every time I click a link from a google search it redirects me to a different page instead of the page I clicked on. I have been getting around this by just copying the link directly into the url bar. I usually use chrome but it happens when I use internet explorer also. I don't know what could have caused the problem; I don't think I visited any creepy sites or ran anything blatantly bad.

I ran a full scan of malwarebytes and nothing came up. Then I tried kaspersky rescue disk 2010 and nothing came up at all. Again with Spybot nothing unusual came up.

When it redirects me it usually goes to scour.com or different fake anti-virus sites.

I have windows 7 32 bit.

Hello LampMan874,Let me know if the redirects stop after this:Router ResetPlease read this: Malware Silently Alters Wireless Router Settings

Consult this link to find out what is the default username and password of your router and note down them: Route Passwords

Then rest your router to it's factory default settings:

"If your machine has been infected by one of these Zlob/DNSchanger Trojans, and your router settings have been altered, I would strongly recommend that you reset the router to its default configuration. Usually, this can be done by inserting something tiny like a paper clip end or pencil tip into a small hole labeled "reset" located on the back of the router. Press and hold down the small button inside until the lights on the front of the router blink off and then on again (usually about 30 seconds)"

This is the difficult part.
First get to the routers server. To do that type http:\\192.168.1.1 in the address bar and click Enter. You get the log in window.
Fill in the password you have already found and you will get the configuration page.
Configure the router to allow you to connect to your ISP server. In some routers it is done by a setup wizard. But you have to fill in the log in password your ISP has initially given to you.
You can also call your ISP if you don't have your initial password.
Don't forget to change the routers default password and set a strong password. Note down the password and keep it somewhere ... Read more

I have been having the same problems everyone else seems to be having. You enter a search topic in google, it opens, I click the link and get an auto redirect courtesy of google analytics. I sometimes have to spamclick the link to get to a site (I had to do that to find this forum actually). My level of experience with computers is technician level. I graduated in 2008 from Anthem Institute (formerly chubb institute) for Computer Networking and Security, and I seek a career at this type of work, but mainly keeping hackers out of systems. The reason I'm here and not able to do it myself is that I am unfamiliar with some of these new methods of "hijack this" and "combofix", and am uncomfortable with using them unless I learn them myself, so, I've swallowed my pride as a man and am here asking for directions. I'm more used to the tied and true method of going into msconfig and killing startup items.

I have tried using several virus scanners to locate the source of this problem, removed some trojans found, and the scanners aren't turning up anymore results while the problem still persists. I'm using Firefox as my browser. I search something in the browser search bear, and it turns up Google's results as they would normally appear. The links are all normal. However, I would guess about a fourth of the time, when I click one of the search results, it will redirect me to one out of a few sites. I can remember nationwide, and abcjmp.

Dell Dimension 4600 with Windows XP became infected with Internet Security 2012 trojan malware. My antivirus program,Avira, had no answer, and after researching the program I finally was able to rid myself of that plague by stopping the associated processes in task manager, deleting the files I could identify as being associated with the malware, and manually deleting registry entries. I killed some more tentacles with Spybot S&D , replaced Avira with Avast! and Avast boot time scan finished the job. I had to manually restart the Windows Firewall in Device Manager, and had to reregister Windows Update following a multistep re-registration procedure I found on the internet. Internet Explorer would not restart (I may have screwed up a registry entry) so I re-installed IE 9. Everything appeared to be back to normal. Avast and Spybot both declared my computer clean. Yay! But then I discovered that when I tried to navigate to websites after conducting a Google search, Google redirects me to google.ad.sgdoubleclick.net, and this happens in both IE9 and Firefox. I saw that some people who had the problem when using Firefox had successfully eliminated the redirects by disabling XULRunner 1.9.1 in the Firefox Add-on manager. I tried that, and so far so good...with Firefox. I'm still having the issue with Internet Explorer. Several people have recommended scanning with Malware Bytes so I downloaded and ran that program. Again, nothing was detected. One... Read more

A:Google Redirect, Possible Browser Hijacking

Hello and Welcome to Bleeping Computer!!My name is Gringo and I'll be glad to help you with your computer problems. 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 Watch Topic Button, select Immediate Notification, and click on Proceed.

I first have had trouble with my browser redirecting to bogus websites on both Google & Firefox. The system also ran super-slow. I scanned for malware using Spy Doctor, Malwarebytes, Super Spyware, Avira AntiVir - still had the problem. My computer seemed to behave worse after downloading these products (really slow, ad pop ups) - I removed Super Spyware, and the other products I mentioned are no longer on my desktop after I did a System Restore - I'm not sure if those are removed as well (I save them to my program files and I can't see them there anymore). I am also getting a blue screen that says, "The application failed to initialize properly." Another time it said something about hardware not being installed properly (sorry, I didn't write it down word for word). I wonder if this has anything to do with me installing additional RAM yesterday? I was able to do all of the steps you suggested in the Preparation Guide, and the files are attached.
