Are you facing problems to use the search engine in your browser? Are you getting redirected to bogus pages when you are trying to search anything in a search engine on your computer? Are there tons of pop ups flashing out when you are trying to search anything in a search engine?
I had also faced the same problem few days ago matching what you are facing now. One day when I tried to get some information on a keyword and typed that keyword on the Google’s custom search bar. The search page got hijacked and landed on a site filled with content completely irrelevant to me. Along my computer screen almost fill up with tons of pop ups. I guessed that it could be a virus attack and my guess came true when I found Google is working in its usual style on other computers.
Then I tried quite a bit to remove that virus from my system as you might have tried. I opened all the files available on my computer at that time and scanned them one by one with my anti-virus program. But nothing happened, not a single virus was traced. Then blaming the inefficiency of my anti-virus, I tried the same process using another anti-virus but the result was quite same as before. Then I tried with almost six or seven anti virus programs but none of them came to my rescue. I got frustrated and called a cyber security expert for this redirect virus removal. But he also surrendered himself in front of the virus’s resilience. Finally by one’s suggestion, I found a site offering a tool for search redirect virus removal. And the tool offered by that site successfully removed the virus. And I used the search engine for Google once again.
So, my advice to you is, don’t spend money on different type of anti-viruses, as there is not a single anti-virus available in the market which can successfully remove the search redirect virus. Make sure the program specializes in redirect virus removal.
