Google redirect


Recommended Posts

I am not sure if this is just my paranoia, or if I have got some nasty browser hijack, but since last week, every hyperlink on google results seems to redirect me through some middle-man 'url' website.

For instance, the hyperlink http://www.malwarebytes.org

First redirects me to http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&sour...=1&ved=0c... etc etc

Otherwise the web page loads just fine afterward. Is this normal for google? Virus scans turn up clean, but I don't think it hurts to be too careful.

Hi Kahao -

I used the link you posted for Malwarebytes and I was sent directly to our internal download area -

If you find this problem occurs again you can usually complete the link in Safe Mode with Networking -

There may be an infection redirecting you away from our site (which often occurs) - If you wish please use the links below to our experts for cleaning -

I would run a Full Scan with Malwarebytes first just to double check -

Please print out, read and follow What do I do now? , skipping any steps you are unable to complete.

The next step is post a New Topic Here.

One of the expert helpers there will give you one-on-one assistance when one becomes available.

Thank You -

This paid advertising is next to the REAL Malwarebytes site link -

It is FAKE and MISLEADING - The spelling has just altered to MalwareBytes but still one word -

Always be careful of the links you click on -

Download Combofix and run it. Do a search for it.

It will remove the redirects and any other rootkit that Malwarebytes cannot find.

I have a computer business and use MWB 100% of time and highly recommend it. However it will not take care of those redirects.

Combofix will.
