All About The Google Redirect Virus And How To Fix It

Author : Stan Cristian



The Google Redirect Virus is a computer virus that spreads like wildfire among Windows users that connect to the Internet. This is a browser hijack object virus. This means that it’s going to take over your web browser so it can redirect you away from something you’re searching for and put you, instead, at fake advertising websites. It’s an annoying virus, for sure, but the good news is that you CAN rid your computer of it pretty easily.

The Google Redirect is not like a lot of other viruses. It doesn’t install any rogue files or applications in your system. What is does is change the files that runs Windows. Once it has created the changes, it simply disappears from your system, making it impossible for anti-virus programs to find and eradicate it. This is a small difference but it’s also what makes the majority of anti-virus and anti-malware applications ineffective in identifying or removing this virus.

The way the Google Redirect Virus operates is to “inject” its own links into the redirections made by your computer. Whenever you use the Internet, a lot websites you visit redirect you. This can be due to the pages having changed location, or you’ve somehow encountered an error on the site. Major search engines will also redirect you through links of their own before you land where you want to be. That’s why a lot of people get this virus by using Google or other search engines. It’s also why the virus is named the Google Redirect Virus. To cure it, you’ve got to fix the infected settings on your computer.

You’ll need to correct the damaged or corrupted settings. In order to do this, you must use specific software that’s been designed to do so. One tool that has been able to fix the Google Redirect Virus is called Combofix. A large security company created this tool. It works by following a script that will fix any damaged files. This program can be downloaded right from your Internet. Once you download it, Combofix will use a script to run and rid your computer of all infected settings. Then this vicious virus will be gone.
