    1.Go to Start -> Run -> Type msconfig -> Ok -> Go in BOOT.INI tab and tick both "Safe boot" and to the right of that "Networking" and hit Apply and Close.(It will boot in "Safe with networking mode" Choose Administrator)

    2.While in "Safe with networking mode" download Malwarebytes.

    (Note)If you already have Malwarebytes installed and it won't run go in it's program file and rt click on the red mbam app and rename it mbam.bat then rt click and choose send to-> Desktop (create shortcut) now close out of everything and go to your desk top and use that app to launch M-Bam for now on.

    3.Right click on the mbam setup app you downloaded and rename it xxxx then Dbl click on it and install and update it and run a full scan and delete/quarantine all entities it finds and restart if it asks?

    Click on the link below for a free Emsisoft Anti-Malware program. That eliminated the Google redirect virus in my computer. My Mozilla Seamonkey update gave me the virus in the first place, and it kept updating an reinfecting me until I shut it down. Mozilla insists that the various anti-virus companies that detect a redirect virus in their programs are false positives, yet they all persist.
