I wonder if I've picked up a virus tonight. Ticks me off.

ETA: The redirects appear to be to various sites.

I've got my virus scan running, so we'll see how this shakes out.

I picked up something that likes to erase parts of my screen. I did a Google search for an image of the Olympic trials track meet photo finish, and BAM, got a fucking virus.Some people have nothing better to do. Further, every anti-virus and malware removal tool has let me down. Do I need to pay for something better than the free shit?

You need to have something running interactively.

First of all, Rkill then MalwareBytes. That will get rid of most of the shit out there.

Second, Google sucks ass. Use www.goodsearch.com which is not anti-gun.

Only thing I used (out of many, including most of what's already been mentioned in this thread) that found a google redirect rootkit a while back on my nephew's computer.

Once you have a sophisticated malware onboard, it's very difficult to detect it while running the infected operating system as the malware use active defenses to avoid detection. Using a live run disk bypasses those protections.

I had one of these I don't remember exactly where to get rid of it but basically you find a text file and simply delete the the redirect line. Google should turn up a simple fix.

google redirected browser. microsoft has fixes.

delete all cookies temp internet files etc.

reinstall ie if thats what your a usein'

check security software and scan

check windows update and set to automatically update

try ms security essentials. it has gotten better and works pretty good for me. and its free!

one or more of the things on this list should work otherwise you may be in deeper do-do than it sounds. good luck.

YMMV
