Google redirecting


Recommended Posts


Sometimes when clicking on a google search result I am taken to a website that does not correspond to the link I clicked. An example would be:


I found references to a gomeo redirect virus and I tried to remove but none of the applications detected an infection, including MalwareBytes. The MalwareBytes log is below:

So now I am following the instructions on this topic "I'm infected - What do I do now?"

I have reached these steps:

o DeFogger will now ask to reboot the machine - click OK

o IMPORTANT! If you receive an error message while running DeFogger, please post the log defogger_disable which will appear on your desktop.

I ran DeFogger and it did NOT ask me to reboot. No error was reported but a log was created on my desktop as follows:

Should I continue with the steps?

Thank you for your help.

Kind regards

Please DO NOT post back to your post within the first 48 hours. Replying to your own posts changes the post count and will often cause helpers to think that you're already being helped and thus they won't open and look at your post. If no one has replied within 48 hours then please go ahead and either reply to your post or send a private message to a Moderator and let them know that you're still needing assistance.

So I will start a new topic with the required information.
