									How to Remove the Google Redirect Virus

By Steve Goerger



The Google Redirect Virus is a very sneaky virus, and a bad one to get on your computer. The
virus does not act like most other viruses, so it's hard for your anti-virus software to find it.
Most viruses load an executable program on your computer that looks like a real program...and
this is the sign that your anti-virus program usually sees, in order to find and eliminate viruses.
The Google Redirect Virus, however, does not behave in such a straightforward manner. So if
you do a search for it with your AVG Antivirus, or Norton Antivirus, or whichever industry-
standard antivirus you have, you won't find it, and your search results will keep on leading you
down dangerous paths

What the virus itself does is very basic and easy to understand. It takes advantage of the
knowledge that search engine users will surely be clicking on the results of any search them
make on an engine, in order to redirect those users to other pages that the virus thinks users
should visit instead. So, if a user searches for "mobile phones" and the first result in the search
engine       is    "http://www.mobilephones.com,"           the    user       will     click     on
"http://www.mobilephones.com," thinking they will be directed to that page. The virus,
however, intercepts this behavior, and redirects the user to a page of its choice. Often these
pages are trying to sell you something, are full of annoying pop-up windows, or worst of all,
may contain more viruses and malware that will further affect your computer's performance
negatively. This, combined with how hard it is to remove the virus, is what makes the Google
Redirect Virus so problematic.

The Google Redirect Virus is truly an awful virus for your browser and computer to get. Believe
me, I know, as my computer was infected with the virus for over 9 months. And this is
especially telling as I am a person who does web design for a living, and is very technology
savvy. I tried everything, and had no luck getting rid of the virus.

As mentioned above, the Google Redirect Virus is a very stealthy intruder on your computer.
The virus does not behave like other viruses, so it's hard for your anti-virus software to find it.
Most viruses load an.exe program on your computer that looks like a real program...and this is
the telltale sign that your anti-virus program usually picks up on to find and destroy viruses. The
Google Redirect Virus, though, doesn't do this at all. Instead, it hides out in your computer's
registry and browser, which is an entirely different way of behaving that the major anti-virus
companies like Norton and AVG haven't caught up with yet. Therefore, any search by those
products won't catch up to the problem...and your search results will still get redirected, and
your frustration will only grow.

When my own computer was infected with the Google Redirect Virus, I tried every tutorial and
software I could read about on the Internet to get rid of the virus. But no matter what I did,
nothing would work, and I was still stuck with my problem. But then I stumbled onto the
solution: a piece of software known as the FixRedirectVirus.org tool. This tool was created by a
British programmer who was infected with the redirect virus himself, but couldn't find a
suitable fix. So, he invented one! This tool was able to rid my computer of the virus within 5
minutes! Thousands of customers have used this tool, yet somehow the site also remains hard-
to-find-on the internet.

What makes this solution so strong is that it presents not one way to fix the virus, but nine.
Nine different techniques to rid yourself of this virus that took me 9 months to vanquish! The
first technique is called the "ComboFix" method, and it uses a completely unique script to
search out and kill the virus. This worked for me...but if it doesn't work for you, then you can
move on to steps 2-9. Each of these steps takes on the virus (and its possible variants) in a
different way, making sure that at least one of the methods is going to work for your computer.
