Q: search engine redirection google bing

Picked up a search redirector that I can not get rid of. Malwarebytes does not touch it. Webroot secrue anywhere will temporarily remove it but it keeps coming back when computer is left on over night etc. I can't find a perminate way to remove it. I aparently also some vestage of windows system suite that it would be nice to remove if I could find the few pieces. It does not come up but it would be nice to not have combo fix show that it is there. Webroot had me download a file listed as AntiTdl.exe that is supposed to clean it but does not seem to. I could attach it if it would help.

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.)

I'm having problems with Google, Yahoo, and Bing searches directing me to nonrelated sites. This just started yesterday afternoon, probably after trying to download an update to Flash Player HD (?). Also some websites are loading really slow.

I have Windows XP home edition and run IE8.
1st I tried System Restore, but it just stops after I pick a date to restore too.

2nd I downloaded GMER and ran it. It showed 4 areas with possible rootkit problems, but didn't highlight them in red and I couldn't fix them.

3rd I downloaded Sophos Anti-Rootkit software and ran it. The check took 41 minutes and came up with 16 files, but didn't recommend fixing any of those.

4th I downloaded HiJackThis from Trend Micro, Inc. and ran the scan. Trend sent me to this forum for help.

Hiya-hello! Thank you for viewing this topic and any help you may provide me with. : )I'm usually good with computers.

Doing this I can get MSE to start and run through a complete scan. Everything comes up clean.If I go through Task Manager, I turn off the odd-ball processes I can usually get google/bing link to work correctly.

A day or two ago I picked up something that redirects the search sites results to ad sites. This happens in IE and Firefox. It seems to happen with the results from google, yahoo and Bing. I havent really tried any other search engines. I have AVG free installed, and the spybot resident. I have run MalwareBytes, Spybot and although they found some tracking cookies and such, have not fixed the issue. I d/l'ed and installed HitMan Pro 3.5 as others have had luck with Rootkits with that, and it did report finding a rootkit in firefox.exe and quarantined it, removing firefox. It runs cleannow too, but the redirection remains.Attached are le logs from the Preperation guide.I really appreciate any help you can give me, thanl you so very much.DDS (Ver_10-03-17.01) - NTFSx86 Run by Philipvw at 17:53:37.68 on Sun 08/15/2010Internet Explorer: 7.0.5730.13 BrowserJavaVersion: 1.6.0_14Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600.3.1252.1.1033.18.1023.514 [GMT -4:00]AV: AVG Anti-Virus Free *On-access scanning enabled* (Updated) {17DDD097-36FF-435F-9E1B-52D74245D6BF}============== Running Processes ===============C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost -k DcomLaunchsvchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcssvchost.exeC:\Program Files\AVG\AVG9\avgchsvx.exeC:\Program Files\AVG\AVG9\avgrsx.exesvchost.exeC:\Program Files\AVG\AVG9\avgcsrvx.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exesvchost.exeC:&...

A few weeks ago I started noticing the search results from Google would redirect to suspicious websites unrelated to my search terms. I was using Firefox, so I then started using IE and searching via Bing. A few days ago the problem started with Bing as well.

I am running Windows 7 64-bit. I use AVG Free antivirus, and keep the Windows firewall on.

I have run Malwarebytes quick scan, which found and quarantined Trojan.Happili (twice) and Exploit.Drop.9 (also twice) both located in the AppData\Local\Temp\ folder.

Even after removal of these, the problem persists.

-"No active mixer devices" error message when I try to adjust audio volume
-generally slow running computer
-restarts frequently needed because software freezes when opening

I don't remember the exact day it started, but for the past week or so, I have had issues when I try to click on a search result link from any search engine: Google, Bing, etc. Like so many others in different forums/posts I have read over the past few days, if I cut and paste the shortcut into the address bar and hit Enter, it takes me to the appropriate site. But if I just click on the link, I am redirected to anything from porn to shopping to completely random sites. (There is a green globe before the web address for every site I am redirected to, if that helps at all.) That seems to be the only issue I have currently, although a few days back my firewall turned off on its own. Since then, I have downloaded and run Ad-Aware and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware software, as well as the (paid version of) Spyware Sweeper and (free version of) AVG Anti-Virus that I already had running on my system (Windows XP). At first, a trojan was found (Trojan.Backdoor.ProgDav) and after two tries, seemingly removed. I also had a Win32/Cryptor virus found and removed and two other viruses I can't recall. I have run full scans using everything I have over the past day (in both safe and regular mode) and nothing has been found. But the redirecting links problem still persists and I am worried that there are worse things happening to my computer behind the scenes that I can't detect with the naked eye.

We can get rid of it. . . but first, a warning.One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted.

Hi

I am experiencing problems with my Internet Explorer (IE). Whenever I search for a keyword on any search engine (Google/Bing/Yahoo), the main links of the results would redirect to various Ad websites. When I point the mouse over the main link, the status bar of the IE shows a link starting with http://1942.r.google.com... If the link is clicked, another window of IE opens up and redirects to another site.

I, like any other tech, ran several software in safe mode, such as AVG, Trend Micro Worry Free, Symantec Endpoint Security, Spy-Bot, Ad-Aware, Malware Bytes and more. Even though it cleaned many viruses/spy-wares, it could not fix the redirecting issue. I even checked and removed suspicious registry entries from the system.

Hi

I am experiencing problems with my Internet Explorer (IE). Whenever I search for a keyword on any search engine (Google/Bing/Yahoo), the main links of the results would redirect to various Ad websites. When I point the mouse over the main link, the status bar of the IE shows a link starting with http://1942.r.google.com... If the link is clicked, another window of IE opens up and redirects to another site. However, if I close that window or press the back key, it will take me to my original window that I initially intended to go to.

I, like any other tech, ran several software in safe mode, such as AVG, Trend Micro Worry Free, Symantec Endpoint Security, Spy-Bot, Ad-Aware, Malware Bytes and more.

My laptop is a HP dv6000 t2250 1.73GHz 2 GB RAM running windows xp sp3. I have the search engine redirecting problem, but only with ie8 and firefox. I can still use chrome for google, yahoo, etc. The links all work as intended. There is nothing wrong with my computer speed or connection. I decided to look into the problem the other day when I ran the Norton Scan and it found Spyguard 2008 and had it removed from my laptop. Also, I am not sure if this is related to the virus, but whenever I restart my laptop I get the Blue Screen right before it loads the desktop and then it restarts the entire reboot all over again. Usually it only does this once, then it loads properly the second time. However, recently it gave me the blue screen twice and then loaded on the third time. I ran my avast antivirus (full scan last night then a quick scan today) and it moved what it found to the virus chest. I can provide the logs for both scans if needed. I have run TDSS killer and it came back clean. Same thing with Malwarebytes, the results came back clean. I also used CCleaner to clean my computer and clear my registry. I read that an old version of Java contributed to getting the virus/malware so i removed all the old versions on the laptop and then downloaded the newest one. Here is my HijackThis Log. Thank you for your help.

My problem is that when trying to use the internet, I cannot get passed the search engine page. I use Internet Explorer and Google. I have switched the search engine to Bing and Yahoo and each results in same problem. I also loaded Firefox and tried Google, Bing and Yahoo with Firefox with same bad result.

I use ESET and ran Malwarebytes. I am able to access updates for each. I've run scans with each and have found and removed things a couple of times. I still can't get passed the search engine homepage.

Got something going on it's driving me mad. A couple of weeks ago, I ran into a problem with search engine redirection. Every time that I search for anything on Google specifically (I haven't checked the number of other engines) I see the Google results, then immediately get redirected to a PPC. I'm not sure if these PPC links are on the Google results or not. I can see in my status window that I'm getting thrown at a IP address that begins with 82, and end destination is a click.php file with what looks like a hash session ID. I originally got scared that my ISP's DNS servers had been violated, but this situation is only happening in IE, and not FireFox.

I would consider myself pretty tech literate. My HJT is clean, BHOs are clean, running processes look clean; everything looks legit.

About 10 days ago when I first ran into this problem, I found a file in system32 through seaching for files created or mod'd within the last 24 hours (the problem had just started) and found a zpmodem.sys file in there. Research on the net identified this as a bad file, and I removed it, and searched through the system.ini, win.ini and other configuration files but couldn't find anything calling to it at bootup. I checked all my running services to see if it snuck in there, and nothing. After reboot, the redirection stopped happening and I thought I was in the clear.

Today, it has started happening again. I can't find any files that show change in the ... Read more

The Truth About Microsoft's Market Research....

China is clearly the biggest marketing opportunity in the world, with a growing economy and billions of potential customers. Most Chinese speak Mandarin, sort of a universal language that connects all their ethnicities and language groups. They also like Fortune Cookies, don't we all? That's why I was quite surprised, when I opened my latest fortune cookie, and turned it over for the Mandarin lesson:

Step 3
Close the "Settings" window and then restart the browser.
Also, make sure that Bing is not set in IE as your 'default' search provider.

I have ran malwarebytes and a spybot and hijack this and can not seem to remove it.  I can not even remove it from the list.  The remove button is grayed out.  Any information is appreciated!

You might want to refresh your Firefox settings. A few months ago, Firefox changed their default search to Yahoo which uses Bing.

I have been using Bing as the default search engine on my PC for some years. It functions perfectly, and I wanted to be able to use it for searches on my new Samsung Galaxy mobile 'phone as well. But when I went through Chrome/Settings/Search Engine, Bing is shown as "Location is Blocked" ! Can anyone help me to get round this problem? Thanks.
 

A:Bing Search Engine - Blocked

Sttings - search engine - you should see Google Yahoo and Bing and a couple of others - select Bing
tap on that "Location is blocked" which should be in blue lettering
then on the next screen - tap on location access and select allow

Hi, I am infected with Sinowal MBRvirus which is causing Google and Bing search results links to redirect to various advertising sites. Surprisingly, Sophos (autoupdate 10min intervals) has not detected this. We have a Sonicwall firewall on the network; other details as per log below. I would appreciate some assistance with the removal of the virus, please.

For the last 24 hours, I have not been able to access my regular Google search engine. Every time I try (and I have tried A LOT) whatever I am looking for takes me to Bing. Once there, I still cannot get to any of the sites.

I have done LOTS of things to correct this, such as:

Searched out help online
Cleaned my cache
Deleted my History
Did system restore (a number of times)
Changed some information in the Hosts file
Searched Google Help for help (problem has occurred a lot - no indication they are concerned)
Upgraded my Google Toolbar
Nothing has worked!

At this point, I am at my wits end!

Please help me.

Help! How do I permanently remove bing search engine on my computer? I have tried searching for advice on this and nothing helps: Wikihow says to insert an html (well I can't even identify that) someone else said to locate bing in search engine add-ons (it doesn't even show up) and someone else said to type about.config in the filter bar - where is it?? Nothing is showing up as it should according to these gurus.

I am using Firefox. If I use IE bing stays hidden but I like Firefox and don't want this blasted thing on my computer. Any ideas - thanks in advance. Please use nice simple instructions.

Solved:
Guess what? If you use Firefox, here is a nice simple solution that does not remove bookmarks or files. Open Firefox, select help, troubleshooting issues, refresh Firefox. Select refresh only what I want, Firefox will reset to default. When done close window and reset home page. Easy as. FYI a file named Old Firefox Stuff will appear on your desktop in case you need anything from it. Many thanks to Chris for this info.

Hi.
 
I've been working with Jeff over in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware and Malware forum and we've come to a point where he feels that the problem is possibly a hardware software problem of some sort.
 
Until a couple weeks ago, my I.E. search engine was Google and I had no problem opening links.  However, somehow I was hacked and they managed to corrupt my Kasperky Pure 3 program as well as my IoBits Advanced System Care Pro, well still acting as if both were updating and running as they should.  Then I discovered my firewall was down, and the programs were not running according to Windows Security.  From there, I couldn't turn on Windows Firewall or Windows Defender and Windows Update had been shut down.
 
Kaspersky worked with me and we discovered that the program had indeed been corrupted so using another computer and cd which I burned, I installed a new Kaspersky Pure 3 program.  Windows Security now showed Kaspersky as the firewall, virus protection and spyware/malware protection.  I had to turn Windows Update back on.
 
When I turned Windows Update back on, it did some updates to I.E.  I didn't think anything of it as I don't use I.E. except for the very rare occasion.
 
When finalizing our troubleshooting, it was recommended that I check settings in I.E. to be sure they were set properly.  When I opened I.E. all of a sudden it kept trying to redirect from the homepage. I closed the browser, opened it again with... Read more

I have this problem with my home wireless network. Whenever I use a search engine to find things and try to open the search results, they always open in a new window always redirects to some advertisement sites first, and after closing that window and clicking the search result again it will direct to the correct site, also in a new window. This only happens to computers that are connected to this specific home wireless network, as when I use my computer on another wireless network it does not happen, and the search engines all run just fine and normal. Also, just by using the search engines such as google, it randomly downloads viruses and malware onto my computer that I have to spend time to clean. On a side note, Google also always opens in french and even if i change it to english it will open in french again next time I open a new window, dont know if that has anything to do with it.

Please let me know if theres anything I can do to fix this or if there is more information required
