    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.

    Install TDSSKill. This will shut down the processes.

    Run the current antivirus that is on the computer. Then, uninstall it as it is not doing the job.

    Install Avast free and Malwarebytes free. Run both in full scan mode one after the other. It may take an hour or more for each thorough scan to complete. Avast and Malwarebytes are 2 of the few antivirus/malware apps that can be on the system at the same time without causing harm.

    A complete pain to get rid of.

    this generic attack on the infection will put things right.


    click on Start > Run.

    or hold down the windows logo key and press the R key

    Type in the following into the open box.


    then Click on OK.

    This will run Device Manager.

    In Device Manager,

    click on View > Show Hidden Devices.

    expand all the devices by clicking on the "Plus" sign.

    Now try to find

    TDSSserv.sys or clbdriver.sys or oUltraf or seneka.sys,

    right click on whatever one you found and select Disable.

    make sure that you do not select the Un-Install option

    otherwise infection will be back once you reboot your computer.

    if none of them are there do not worry,

    it could be something simpler but follow what comes next.

    you will have to enable view hidden folders in, folder options > view.

    Delete everything in the windows temp folder,

    C > Windows > Temp

    Delete all cookies,

    Delete all temporary internet files(not to be confused with windows temp files)

    these are best deleted via your internet browsers.

    it will save you messing about in the the hidden system files

    reset internet explorer,

    tools > internet options > Advanced tab > reset .

    Delete everything in the prefetch folder.

    C > Windows > Prefetch

    Delete the hosts file,

    C > Windows > System32 > drivers > etc > HOSTS

    A clean hosts file will be written by windows when you reboot later.

    Note: if you were using a custom Hosts file

    you will need to replace any of those entries yourself.

    Delete the flash cookies found in the macromedia, #Shared Objects folder.

    c > users > "your name" > App Data > Roaming > macromedia > Flash player > #Shared Objects

    delete everything you find in the #Shared Objects folder

    last lot to delete,

    navigate to

    c > users > "your name" > App Data > Local > Temp

    delete everything in the Temp folder.

    Run a full scan with this

    Sophos Anti-Rootkit :

    and remove everything suspicious it finds.

    Do not have any open windows and shut down all programs when you run it.

    Sophos Anti-Rootkit DOWNLOAD :

    Then run a full scan with this and remove what it finds.

    Super anti spyware Pro :

    Super anti spyware Pro DOWNLOAD :

    this has a tool built in that can reset the URL prefix's, USE IT.

    reset your router to default.

    download then run,Hitman pro : to mop up anything left.

    remove what ever it finds.

    your redirect virus will now be gone.
