30 posts in this topic

Posted

Every time i try to google anything it redirects me to this website.

I tried Reset FF
I tried AdwCleaner.exe, Search & Destroy, Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, SUPERAntiSpyware, Spyware Terminator 2012, Trojan Remover

with no luck :(

Any solutions?

Check your [color=#0000ff]hosts[/color] file, found here [color=#0000ff]C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc[/color],

Just reset your search engine to defaults (Search Bar>Manage Search Engine). if that doesn't work restart Firefox in safemode, that'll disable any addons/extensions causing the redirect. You should then remove the culprit.

Give [url="http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/combofix/"]ComboFix[/url] a try. Also [url="http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/tdsskiller/"]tdsskiller[/url].

Did you run all of your previous scans in safe-mode?

At this point, wouldn't it be easier just to uninstall FF and reinstall it?

You would have to uninstall, manually delete any Mozilla folders (look for hidden ones in your user directory), delete any Mozilla registry entries (manually or with ccleaner).
Then reinstall. That's what I would do if all other roads lead nowhere.

You'll have to hunt through the about:config page, there's 2 or 3 settings in there you'll have to reset, they'll have part of that url in them.

Go into about:config
and then find this preference:
[quote]keyword.URL[/quote]
its string and open it and remove it or set it to default.

Hopefully this might work.

Just uninstall firefox and install it again, saves you trying all these things that a simple reinstall should fix
