malwarebytes , but it has to be run in Safe Mode with networking to be sure, and you have to do a full scan to make sure it gets every bit of it.
Malwarebytes : Malwarebytes Anti-Malware PRO removes malware including viruses, spyware, worms and trojans, plus it protects your computer

I say Safe Mode with networking because you'll want to be able to update the virus database before scanning.

the free version should be adequate for this.

Well it's a fairly simple thing so I don't think the failure is in the removal. I would guess the user is consistently doing something that is resulting in the infection.

When I clean up a computer I'll run MBAM & SUPERAntiSpyware

Also, an online scan wouldn't hurt either. Choose one or more.

Run all Anti-Virus and Malware tools you can get in Safe Mode with Networking. If that still doesn't remove anything, back up files and clean your Hard Drive. If you've got windows disk do a clean installation.

Hi,

I think you might have a "poisoined" DNC cache. Please try the following:

1. Open a new instance of NotePad, and copy and paste the text below exactly as shown into NotePad:

@Echo on
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
shutdown -r -t 1
del %0

Now save this as flush.bat on your Desktop.

2. Right-click on this bat file, and choose to run as administartor. It will automatically shut-down, and then reboot your PC. your PC.

After reboot, use as as normal and check to see if you still get re-direction.

Regards,
Golden
