Google Redirect

Is google redirect a virus and if so why does Norton not pick it up during scans? Any advice on how to rid myself of the hassle would be greatly appreciated.

Ok.  You might download a coy of Free Version Of Malwarebytes' Anti Malware from  http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free.  Be sure to decline the trial of the Pro Version as it will clash with Norton.  Update and run a full scan.  This could take some time,  so be patient.  Post back with your results.

Thanks,  Dave.

Re: Google Redirect

Clear the Windows Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and prefetch folder. Download and run the Norton Power Eraser:

Let us know if it detects or removes any threats.

 

Thanks,
