After running an AntiVirus program make sure to write down the name(S) of any that are detected including the path if its given.
Especially some Trojans require more than just one action to remove it. If you don't notice any problems in performance don't worry but if you do, take these steps you'll be surprised that it isn't always gone.

***TURN OFF SYSTEM RESTORE***

1) Do a search on each viruses name (1 @ a time)
2) Right click on it selecting "open containg folder" or to that effect.
3) Take a look at surrounding folders if any, to see any others having at least part of the file name in it. These are the ones you right click "delete" and quickly empty recycle bin.
4) Now do a search for prefetch. If you have more than one look for C:Windows. Hit Ctrl + A on your keyboard at the same time highlighting all files/folders. Delete/empty recycle bin.
5) Next restart your pc. This will flush out the different memory locations.
If you still think your pc is infected post back. I'll try to help with finding the others locations viruses tend to hide.

Slow pc. may have virus?


Do you have an anti virus installed in your computer? If you have one, then run an anti-virus scan in your computer.

The problem seems virus related.

If your anti virus can't fix the problem, then you need to clean reinstall the whole operating system to get rid of the virus.

I hope this helps!

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.

Removal of virus for free


Hello,

You can install free AVG anti-virus. It's one of the best anti-virus that I have used. Even its FREE VERSION can get rid of viruses. Be reminded though that there are some viruses that can't be removed with free anti-virus and you might need to purchase the full version or have your computer reinstalled and install a free or full version of anti-virus.

By the way, if I were you, I would install RadarSync in that computer after fixing it. It's a technician's software which can optimize your computer's performance. I have been using it together with a good anti-virus. Believe me, they work good together.

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?

Computer is infected with viruses


Blue screens as a result of infection mean the virus has corrupted the operating system. You can fix it by doing an operating system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. Depending on the virus, this may only be a temporary fix. If this turns out to be a temporary fix, then the sure way to fix it is to completely wipe the hard drive, completely reformat using NTFS, and reload the operating system, which I would recommend. If you have any problems during or after the reload, then the virus damaged the hard drive and it will need to be replaced.

Funey UST scandle.avi.exe virus


It's hard to remove that said virus because you cannot install or update your anti virus even in the said mode because the virus is close the program quickly or disable it. I fixed my costumer computer last week with the same problem. I remove the hard disk and installed to the other computer with updated anti virus installed (bitdefender internet security). I removed the virus then when i returned it to his original cpu i run the registry mechanical to fix the registry problem. MY customer is happy because he said his files and his computer working great now.

Virus problem


I would recommend installing an anti-virus program, you can get a 30 day trial of Kaspersky (leading A/V company) from HERE.

Download and install this. Once installed you can do a scan and fix any virus issues you have, and if it fixes your computer it may be worth while investing in an Anti Virus program for your computer.
