One of our laptops has the google redirect disease.
We have tried lots of things already but to no avail.
So far we have tried:
Scan with AVG 2012
Scan with McAfee
Scan with Malwarebytes
Scan with Hitman pro 3.6
Scan with pc tools spyware doctor
Scan with Super antispyware
Scan with microsoft essentials
The Microsoft Malicious software removal tool
used Rkill and unhide
oh and even did a Combofix
Also did a Hijack this scan and ran the results through Hijjackthis.de and fixed the issues indicated with a red X
All to no avail.
the issue started with a fake HDD scare, which we got removed (I guess) but this redirecting issue remains.
The issue seems limited to a standard user and only happens in Firefox and Chrome.
Whenever doing a google search it will redirect to some random sites filled with advertisements
I'm attaching a hijackthis log and a combofix log and a tdss killer log fyi
Hope someone can help me out here
