Remove redirect virus

Please help me. My Internet Explorer keeps on redirecting to My computer suffers from this malware for two days now and I can’t find any matching solution.

This is what happened. I perform a Google search. Its shows the result so I click on one link, then, my browser displays blank page that has a URL of If not blank page, it will hijack my browser and post advertisements.

I have run several antivirus tools like Malwarebytes, Spybot, and Housecall but to no avail. Malwarebytes found one Trojan Dropper and the other programs reported no infections. I have uninstall Internet Explorer for a couple of times but that doesn’t resolve the problem either. Even disabling all add-ons on my browser is not effective.

I am planning to reformat my computer If I will not be able to find a solution. However, if I can find better result, I am willing to take a risk. That would be easier that erasing the whole hard drive.

    This redirect virus hit my computer few weeks back. It is a fact that redirects are packed with rootkit Trojan so they are difficult to remove. Unlike ordinary Trojans, rootkits are injected on Windows system files. Thus, removing them sometimes require overwriting the infected file. To obtain this without the danger of deleting wrong file, run a scan with TDSSKiller or aswMBR. Both are rootkit remover from known antivirus vendors Kaspersky and Avast respectively.

    For the most part, I’m not a fan of the redirect plugin. That’s not to say that it’s not effective, I guess it just isn’t for me. I’ve seen some people use it well and others, well, not so much. I do however customize the redirect process when someone subscribes to my site via email and/or to my newsletter. I have custom Almost There and Welcome pages. It’s a small personal touch that I think works like a charm.Ricardo Bueno recently posted..
