Browser hijacker NOT fixed by Factory Reset!

Recommended Posts

It's unbelievable. I have a browser hijacker (both google and yahoo) that simply will not go away with any program. Tried unsuccessfully so far in and out of normal and safe mode: Malwarebytes, Spyware Doctor, AVG, Superantispyware, microsoft security essentials, etc, etc. In some cases, the browser will work correctly for one or two searches but goes right back to redirecting to another nonsense site. Tried system restore to factory reset, and it worked for a search or two but almost instantly went back to redirecting! Any help would certainly be appreciated.

Hi and welcome to Malwarebytes.

1. Very important: First disconnect your computers from the Internet.

2. Router Reset: Next you must reset the router to its default configuration. This can be done by inserting something tiny like a paper clip end or pencil tip into the small hole labeled Reset located on the back of the router. Press and hold down the small button inside until the lights on the front of the router blink off and then on again (usually about 30 seconds).

3. Reset the IP/DNS settings of your Internet connection on each computer connected:

  • Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Double click on Network Connections.
  • Right click on your default connection (usually Local Area Connection or Wireless Network Connection) and select Properties.
  • Select the General tab.
  • Double click on Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).
    • Under General tab:
      • Select "Obtain an IP address automatically".
      • Select "Obtain DNS server address automatically".

    [*]Click OK twice to save the settings.

    [*]Reboot if you had to change any setting.

4. Flush the DNS cache:

  • Click the Start logo in the bottom left corner of the screen
  • Click on Run
  • In the command window copy/paste the following:
    ipconfig /flushdns


  • Then hit enter.
  • Exit the command window.

5. Reconnect: Once you have followed all the above steps you can reconnect your computer to the internet.
