Complete Fix For The Google Redirect Virus

  1. 1. ==== ====Google Redirect Virus ====The Google Redirect Virus is a "browser hijack" virus which will send your computer to fakewebsites when you are redirected online. In normal circumstances, Windows will be able to sendyou to the correct website when it is redirected, but if you have the Google Redirect Virus, thevirus will "inject" its own websites into the redirect process, leading your PC to send you to randomones. This will happen for all redirects, not just search engine results... however, as most searchengine results will redirect you, thats where most people see the issue.Not many people know this, but when you click on a link on the search engine, it wont take you tothe page youre looking for straight away. In fact, Google, Yahoo & Bing will all take you to aspecial link on / / in order to track your searches and othermetrics. All search engines redirect your results, meaning that if you have the redirect virus, itsgoing to show when you search for something online.The reason why this virus is difficult to remove is because it doesnt leave any "footprint" or "trace"on your system. Unlike typical virus infections (which will place a fake file / application onto yourPC), the search redirect virus will just change the redirect settings for Windows and thendisappear. This means that most antivirus programs are powerless to remove it==== ====Google Redirect Virus ====
