Internet Explorer Home Page - Add or Change

Were you able to figure out how to run both cleaning tools?

Or do you need step-by-step instructions?

pyro90,

In the capture you provided, the address shown is:
https://www.google.com.au/?gws_rd=cr&ei=RcNJUoPrGYfFkA

That takes the IE10 browser to aGoogle Australia page, offering a Sign up, and also an install of Google Chrome.

Anyone with IE10 is welcome to try it. That is not a malware page, or a virus redirection page.

Is www.google.com your home page?



Also, please press on with Downloading MiniToolBox
Save to the Desktop. <<--
Double-click the downloaded file to run it.




When the MiniToolBox console opens, please check the following boxes:
  • Flush DNS
  • Report IE Proxy Settings
  • Report FF Proxy Settings (Only if you use FireFox)
  • List content of Hosts
  • List IP Configuration
  • List Winsock Entries
Click: Go

Please post the Result.txt in your reply.
(A copy of Result.txt is found on the Desktop.)

So do I, Britton!

Maybe Google is playing with us.

Take a look at the Edit on my last post.



Not to worry!

This issue is not a malware problem!!!!

Using your link in your question it opened the normal site,
https://www.google.com/
Which the only difference is the https is added,
Are you logged into Google services ?
Because I'm not,
Cheers.
