VIRUS:URLSEEK40

Hi EE'r,

My wife has the redirect virus urlseek40 - my searches tie it to oovoo toolbar and Firefox. She does not seem to have the oovoo toolbar... I used the about:config in firefox and changed it from whare it was and changed it to google as per an answer I found. I restarted Firefox.

It's still happening. Still redirecting.

Help?

Thanks.

carrolc575,

younghv has already recommended Mbam, and given a download link.

I assume you are referring to Spybot and Adaware ("..spybots s&d then adware...").  What is it about these programs which makes you feel that they are "....what should be run..."?

"... if these do not work bring your system into a local it company..."   Generally speaking, people tend to ask questions here at ee so that they can avoid having to do that.

"...or reload your comp to factory ... "  Isn't that rather a drastic step to resolve a browser hijack?

 


Thanks pt - I need to make a macro out of this post:
