Google Redirecting Me?

Recommended Posts

I have recently acquired the google redirect virus. I was trying to download a game, but some of the files I needed AVG detected was infected, however, I don't know if they have been removed. I looked around for some resolutions, and followed part of your guides on 2 different threads that you had help resolved. I followed the tutorials with SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes, however, I am now up to the ComboFix part and I have no idea what I'm doing with it :P


Could you please help me out here?


P.S. I first noticed it when my dad asked me to look something up about 2 hours later, it was redirecting me to a link that said "cpcadnet". It appeared to be gone after I followed part of your guide, but it was still there when I was browsing later that night.

Hello and welcome to IOBit Forums. My name is Dave. I will be helping you out with your particular problem on your computer.


1. I will be working on your Malware issues. This may or may not solve other issues you have with your machine.

2. The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for this issue on this machine.

3. If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to ask.

4. Please DO NOT run any other tools or scans while I am helping you.

5. It is important that you reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.

6. Your security programs may give warnings for some of the tools I will ask you to use. Be assured, any links I give are safe.

7. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.


If you can't access the internet with your infected computer you will have to download and transfer any programs to the computer you're using now and transfer them to the infected computer with a CD-RW or a USB storage device. I prefer a CD because a storage device can get infected. If you use a storage device hold the shift key down while inserting the USB storage device for about 10 secs. You will also have to transfer the logs you receive back to the good computer using the same method until we can get the computer back on-line.

Please download ComboFix http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/4930/combofix.gif from BleepingComputer.com


Alternate link: GeeksToGo.com


and save it to your Desktop.

It would be easiest to download using Internet Explorer.

If you insist on using Firefox, make sure that your download settings are as follows:


* Tools->Options->Main tab

* Set to "Always ask me where to Save the files".


Disable your AntiVirus and AntiSpyware applications, usually via a right click on the System Tray icon. They may otherwise interfere with our tools A guide to do this can be found here

Double click ComboFix.exe & follow the prompts.

As part of it's process, ComboFix will check to see if the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed. With malware infections being as they are today, it's strongly recommended to have this pre-installed on your machine before doing any malware removal. It will allow you to boot up into a special recovery/repair mode that will allow us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware.

Follow the prompts to allow ComboFix to download and install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console, and when prompted, agree to the End-User License Agreement to install the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console


Please note: If the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is already installed, ComboFix will continue it's malware removal procedures.


Once the Microsoft Windows Recovery Console is installed using ComboFix, you should see the following message:



Click on Yes, to continue scanning for malware.

When finished, it shall produce a log for you. Please include the contents of C:\ComboFix.txt in your next reply.


If you have problems with ComboFix usage, see How to use ComboFix

Log and False Postive.


ComboFix has deleted Steam.exe, as indicated below. But Steam.exe is not malware/spyware. It is a program designed to host games made from the company Valve (i.e. Half-Life 2, Portal, Counter-Strike: Source).


I installed it yesterday, and it has deleted the exe file!


Not happy with that. But heres the log anyway.

I installed it yesterday, and it has deleted the exe file!

There might have been something wrong with the file. There are two malware programs that run under the same name. Wait until we're finished cleaning and re-install it.

That's good. Let's do some cleanup and we'll be finished. You can keep SAS and MBAM, if you wish. Update them and run them on a regular basis to keep the bugs out. You can delete TDSSKiller from your desktop.


To uninstall ComboFix


  • Click the Start button. Click Run. For Vista: type in Run in the Start search, and click on Run in the results pane.
  • In the field, type in ComboFix /uninstall




(Note: Make sure there's a space between the word ComboFix and the forward-slash.)


  • Then, press Enter, or click OK.
  • This will uninstall ComboFix, delete its folders and files, hides System files and folders, and resets System Restore.


Clean out your temporary internet files and temp files.

Download TFC by OldTimer to your desktop.


Double-click TFC.exe to run it.


Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator


TFC will close all programs when run, so make sure you have saved all your work before you begin.


* Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process.

* Depending on how often you clean temp files, execution time should be anywhere from a few seconds to a minute or two.

* Please let TFC run uninterrupted until it is finished.


Once TFC is finished it should restart your computer. If it does not, please manually restart the computer yourself to ensure a complete cleaning.


Looking over your log it seems you don't have any evidence of a third party firewall.


Firewalls protect against hackers and malicious intruders. You need to download a free firewall from one of these reliable vendors.


Remember only install ONE firewall


1) Comodo Personal Firewall (Uncheck during installation "Install Comodo SafeSurf..", Make Comodo my default search provider" and "Make Comodo Search my homepage" and uncheck any HopSurf and/or Ask.com options if you choose this one)

2) Online Armor

3) Agnitum Outpost

4) PC Tools Firewall Plus


If you are using the built-in Windows XP firewall, it is not recommended as it does not block outgoing connections. This means that any malware on your computer is free to "phone home" for more instructions. Simply put, Windows XP contains a mediocre firewall. This firewall is NO replacement for a dedicated software solution. Remember to use only one firewall at the same time.


You can uninstall/delete any other programs that we used.


Use the Secunia Software Inspector to check for out of date software.


•Click Start Now


•Check the box next to Enable thorough system inspection.


•Click Start


•Allow the scan to finish and scroll down to see if any updates are needed.

•Update anything listed.




Go to Microsoft Windows Update and get all critical updates.
