You may have malware on your machine. Many of these programs will redirect you to sites of their creator's choosing (particularly to avoid anti-virus and anti-malware software). Download programs like Spybot Search and Destroy and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware at an uninfected computer to flash drive or CD and run them on the affected machine. Try running an anti-virus program from a LiveCD (recovery disc).

The other possibility is you are browsing to sites forbidden by the firewall, IT or parental controls.

Why Google Search Redirects Virus? How to Fix Google Redirecting Virus


Two good software tools can help you to fix the redirecting virus with Google search.One is the registry repairing program and the other is the malware removal tool. With the help of the registry cleaning program the infection is completely removed from the hidden registry entries of the Windows. While the anti-malware detects and removes the infection from the computer. If during search, Google redirects virus and produces undesired web results then follow these instructions:
Step 1:
Download a software to thoroughly repair and clean Windows registry. The Windows registry is an area which contains very sensitive information about all the programs running in the computer. Most of the viruses and malwares also attack the Windows registry. Unfortunately running the anti-virus/anti-malware scans only does not remove the infections from Windows registry.

Step 2:
Download a good malware removal tool and conduct scan through it. The Google search redirect virus is caused by the malwares that shall be removed from the computer. If properly used with the registry cleaning tool, the antimalware can greatly help to fix the Google redirecting virus.

Step 3:

Go to My Computer > Properties > Device Manager > Hardware > View > Show Hidden Devices. After this select the option "Non-Plug and Play Drivers" and disable 'TDSSserv.sys'. Don not uninstall it.

The above guidelines have been found to work well. Are you tired of this nuisance and want to have a quick fix to eliminate Google redirecting virus? Here are the tools which are recommended by PC experts to fix search redirect problem:

Use Intel Software Partner, RegInOut and Use Combofix Tool.You shall run RegInOut scan before and after this process if Google redirects virus in your browser.

I am typing facebook.com bit some thing els apprearing


Most likely you have a virus that is redirecting your inputs to places the virus wants you to go. First try to clear the history in your browser. If that fails, then run a deep virus scan on the unit to attempt to find and eliminate the problem.

If i open now my google,google custom search was appeared instead of google chrome


If you mean you type in www.google.com and it redirects you to a custom search, it could be many things. If you are at work or school, they may have a firewall in place that redirects you to their google custom search. It could also be a temporary internet file or cookie that's redirecting you. If you're not behind a work/school firewall try deleting your browsers temporary internet files.

Google search redirects me to another site...how do I fix this?


That's a classic sign of a virus and or spyware.They redirect you to a site they control and try to get you to buy their virus protection.Reboot in "safe mode" and run your virus and spyware software.Make sure it's the deep scan so it clears your Restore files too.Also check your User Accounts for a "new" administrator.The virus will log on as administrator and control your computer so you can't delete the virus files.Let me know if this helps?

Redirected from yahoo email


You may have a virus or worm that has infiltrated your network and it is routing you to the google page away from your Yahoo!Mail. I would recommend doing a virus scan on all the computers attached to your network including locking down your firewall on any routers, hubs, switches and on all windows platforms utilized by your computers. Once that is done, proceed with a full network check which you may need to consult a local computer repair company if you are unable to do the network scan yourself.
