Google Redirect + Registry Defender

Post by Hobo on Tue 07 Sep 2010, 7:56 pm

First topic message reminder :

I have tried to post a complete description of my problem but Internet Explorer fails every time I try. I was able to make a post that did not mention the nature of my problem so I think the malware infecting my laptop is blocking IE from posting threads about the malware.

I will break my post into smaller portions and see if it will allow me to post my message. Please bear with me.


My laptop is infected with a Google Redirect Malware / Hijacker that redirects IE to dangerous and annoying sites when I click on Google (and other) search results. In the last few days the malware has grown to now open new IE windows on its own and points them to dangerous and annoying sites. It now also opens pop-ups with messages telling me my computer registry is damaged and I should buy their product. Occasionally when I try to close an IE window the malware has opened I will get two warning pop-ups asking if I am sure I want to decline their offer. Some of the sites opened in the new IE windows by the malware are designed to look like legitimate news sites (e.g., news4online), Sears, etc.

Seems to be back to normal. No more Google hijacks. Running faster except for occasional bog downs. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for the help. I'm glad to be rid of that malware.
