Mevio Redirect Virus

I have tried every tactic I know to remove a redirect virus I have that either plays Mevio in the background of my computer or it takes me to various websites when I search on Yahoo or google. I have tried multiple versions of Malware products, run Norton, System restore, downloaded other Antivirus Software and it gets by every one of them. The only thing I have not done is reformat my hard drive. Before I do that I want to see if anyone has experienced this and can make recommendations. 



Re: Mevio Redirect Virus

Hi jacklape:

Welcome to the Norton community.

Please see my instructions here in HeyDoubleT's thread Redirected to Wrong Sites for using the free Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) to perform a full system scan.

If MBAM doesn't work, flotplot has posted links in that same thread to recommended malware removal forums where you can get expert advice on removing this malware.  I've used the WhatTheTech Virus, Spyware & Malware Removal forum myself (see their instructions here for posting HijackThis, OTL and DDS logs) and I was assigned a tech expert that worked with me one-on-one until the problem was resolved.

Post back and let us know how you're making out.  If you post in WhatTheTech or one of the other malware removal forums (pick one and stick with it) we try not to confuse matters by throwing out random suggestions, but we want to make sure you're eventually up and running again.
