Are your Google searches redirected? It is aggravating to Google something and get jumped to a completely different page. Even worse when the page is loaded with pornography, pop-ups, and threatening messages. What you’re dealing with is a trojan virus that is spreading at a menacing pace. If you don’t get rid of the Google search redirect issue, then you’re at risk of receiving terrible spyware and virus infections which can corrupt your personal files and at worst, steal your credit card number!
The Google redirect is programmed by sneaky coders that could be hiding anywhere in the world who throw you around to the pages that they want, which are usually loaded with phony software or links to adult websites, all hoping to extract your credit card information or infect your computer further. Certain situations can seem unbeatable, such as a website that blasts thousands of pop-ups until you are forced to shut down any way you can. The more you have to shut down your computer in frantic situations, the worse it is for your hardware, which can eventually lead to fan problems, motherboard problems, and hard drive failure.
The good news straight off the bat is that if you’ve got the Google redirect virus, it can be removed. Either manually or automatically. Before we begin, is your computer showing any other signs of infection? For example, is your system running slower than usual? Are there strange new backgrounds or icons on your desktop? Are you getting bombarded with strange popups? If your computer seems to be running strange, there’s a high probability that you’re infected with something nasty. What we are most fearful of right now is that you may be infected with a keylogger virus, which will record everything you type and can transmit secure information to thieves anywhere in the world.
So How Do We Remove It?
Manual Removal: The first way we can remove the Google redirect virus is by doing so manually. This is no easy task, unfortunately. You will have to hack into your Windows/System32 folder and adjust your regedit.exe file. You will have to look into your registry folder under the onecore Airtel drivers folder and adjust your entries with ‘aux’ in the filename. You will have to scan through your program files with hidden files displayed and inspect any possible strange looking exe files.
Due to the complexity of manual removal, I only recommend that absolute experts (think IT technicians) attempt to remove these kinds of viruses manually. It is just too easy to adjust the wrong file and end up with a system in worse shape than before.
