How do i stop my computer from using redirect


Most of the time is a Virus. I suggest you scan with Spybot Search & Destroy, and remove whatever it show. Then restart computer and do Malwarebytes.
See how far you can go. Below is some helpful
INFORMATION YOU CAN USE.

A Virus normally corrupts your computer. IF You have to do a Reformat. Be sure and do a Back-up First., because you will loose everything.

If you know how to do a back-up, save all your documents, pictures and music. If not take it to a reputable computer shop to take of this. There will be a slight charge, but they will save all your important data.

Download Spybot Search & Destroy. Restart computer, then run Spybot to see what spyware comes up, AND DELET IT.

2008 xp antivirus


Have you tried AVG? It is a free anti-virus software.

By the sounds of it "2008 xp antivirus" is a virus. The people who make these viruses often choose names to trick users into downloading their viruses.

This article may help you:

Here is a link to AVG's website. They offer totally free versions of their software.

virus/spyware/malwares and all sort of those stuff are really a pain in the neck. for it to get removed will really require alot of programs and to say at least 16 hours and yet not guarranteed to be totally free. best option>
do a clean reinstall. after the clean reinstall do a flea power (unplug your computer from the wall socket and press the power button to drain any information in the memory that could still be hiding.)

I have an unknown trojan virus thats keeps poping up trying to get me to installed anitspyware how do i get rid of it


  1. AntiVirus - AVG Free Edition
  2. AntiSpware - Spyware Blaster
  3. AntiAdware - Ad-Aware
I recommend using all three of these programs, by doing so you have all your bases covered. AVG Free edition is an awesome program, it updates daily so you can catch even the newest viruses. Best of all it's free! Spyware Blaster is another great program, I've found that this will pick up a lot of things other programs may miss, again it's a free program. Ad-Aware is another great program, this program will also clear out any tracking cookies you may have acquired over time. I use all three of these personally and install them on every computer I build or service.
  • Where do I get these great free programs.
If you haven't visited CNET's http://www.download.com already you are missing out on tons of great free programs, they have everything from games demo's to music editing software, screen savers, and of course antivirus, antispyware, and antiadware programs. This site is updated frequently and includes many reviews on their content. u could simply go to this page and use the search box to find the above mentioned programs, but I'll make it easy for you, follow the below links.

For AVG anti virus-http://www.download.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?tag=pop.software
For Spyware Blaster-http://www.download.com/SpywareBlaster/3000-8022_4-10196637.html?tag=lst-2
For AdAware-http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-2007/3000-8022_4-10045910.html?tag=pop.software

The anti spyware software should not conflict with your anti virus software.
You can download two good free anti spyware programs:
http://www.download.com/Spybot-Search-Destroy/3000-8022_4-10122137.html
http://www.download.com/Ad-Aware-2007/3000-8022_4-10045910.html
AVG also has a free version.
