How to Fix the Google Redirect Virus (DOC) Powered By Docstoc
					A common browser hijack virus known as the 鈥淕 oogle Redirect Virus 鈥?basically
takes over your web browser, sending any searches you request off to random and
irrelevant advertising websites. The main telltale symptom is when your computer
redirects your search efforts at least 2 or 3 times before it finally takes you to the site
you were trying to visit.
  Another way to tell if you have this virus, or not, is if you 鈥檙 e getting various
pop-up windows along with new tabs while you 鈥檙 e trying to browse the Internet.
  The Google Redirect Virus has a bit of a different spin, which makes it harder to
pinpoint and harder to get rid of. Most viruses use an application or file that runs
continually on your computer, so your antivirus program can catch and fix the
problem.
  The Google Redirect Virus, on the other hand, loads onto your system, changes some
web browser files and vanishes. That 鈥檚 why it 鈥檚 so hard to remove. Your
antivirus program has to find the virus before it can remove it and after the virus has
done its damage and disappeared, finding it becomes impossible.
  To remove the virus, you have to fix the infected files and settings. This is done by
using a tool or method that targets the infected files. Unfortunately, it 鈥檚 not
common knowledge as to which settings and files have been changed, which is why
most antivirus programs can 鈥檛 remove it. The best way to remove it is to try an
application called ComboFix. This basic program isn 鈥檛 listed on most download
websites, but is very effective and fast at removing the Google Redirect Virus. It uses
a script to fix the files on that script, which removes the virus.
  Following the ComboFix attempt, use a registry cleaner program to scan your PC.
This will find and fix any errors that may remain in the system. Most people don 鈥檛
realize that the Google Redirect Virus leaves hundreds of files and settings on your
computer that will cause you lots of grief in the future. That 鈥檚 why you need to
use a registry cleaner to be positive that there 鈥檚 nothing left behind after the virus
is removed. The registry cleaner will insure that.
