Right, I'm having a right problem with Google Search results – whatever I search for and click on the natural results I get redirected to various websites (Skooble seems to be a favourite URL) and I don't get the page I'm looking for – if I click back a few times I get the search results and click the link and I get the correct site.
This is affecting all my browsers (IE, Firefox and Chrome) – I've got a number of spyware cleaners and anti virus programmes (although currently only using AVG for anti-virus) – and I can't seem to get rid of the problem.
Any suggestions on how to shift it? I think I've got something in the registry that can't get cleaned…
Right royal pain in the behind – it's not directing to any p0rn or anything just not linking to the website I'm looking for but one that is related in some manner.Posted 8 years ago
Installed both and ran them both – no faults apparently, also ran Malwarebytes AntiMalware whilst in Safe Mode and nothing reported…this is the problem, nothing is being reported as wrong so I'm really stuck to find out how to fix this.
Localhost only has 127.0.0.1 in it…
Any other tips?
Thanks.Posted 8 years ago2unfit2rideSubscriber
I have this on a puter at work, dam annoying to say the least, I actually lost internet connection in IE, still have, & had to use FF from a mem stick to get access to the internet back.Posted 8 years ago
Interested to see if anyone else has resolved the problem as it make no difference how many scans I run, nothing detects it, & some cleaners seem not to run unless un-installed & then re-installed from a memory stick 😐tazzymtbMember
I had this a while ago and it takes flippin ages to get your system clean. it is a trojan and a very clever little bugger it is too. Ironically if you google what the issue is there are a couple of IT forums/sites which list how to strip it off your system, but it hides in back up files etc.. so does take a lot of faff. good luckPosted 8 years ago
