All Google searches from around 8:30 to 9:30AM Central Time USA - had the link:
"This site may harm your computer"
I was at first wondering if all sites caught malware.
But thinking more likely - Google security - was adjusted too tightly.

Anyone else see this?
I went to a second computer - to verify that the same issue existed.
It did - so was not malware on a particular computer.

At aprox. 9:40 AM CST - the "This site may harm your computer" link had been removed.

Thanks,

Chronk

I'm getting a little scared because whenever i search for something on Google, every search result returned is flagged as "this site may harm you computer" for example, i search for "Microsoft", and the first search result, (their website) is labeled as "this site may harm your computer" I'm not sure if its a virus on my part or just a temporarily messed up Google, but I'm sort of scared to surf the internet right nowis it possible that every single website has been infected with a virus? I certainly hope not. Or is it a virus on my computer doing this fiendish thing? Help please

(not sure if i put this in the correct section sorry)

Im with BT Broadband at the moment, earlier today there was a new update, im guessing for the router, so i downloaded it.

Since then i have been getting the above warning on certain sites i try to enter which i have been on before with no problems (for instance, the BBC website).

Is this just coincidence or did the update do this?
... and if so, does anyone know how i got about un-installing the update?

Thanks.

A:Google - Warning visiting this website may harm your computer.

Its not u only. Everybody is having it as google is partnering with another team to do this.

[EDIT] Disabled IPv6 in about:config fixed the problem for me.
I cannot access Youtube, Google videos, Google product fourms, etc... from any browser.
All other computers on the network have no problems loading any of these.
I've cleared every browser cache, reset and unplugged my router and modem, reinstalled my browsers, reinstalled flash, reinstalled my wireless drivers, got a new wireless adapter, went through an ethernet cable all to no avail. I've renewed/released my ip, flushed/actived DNS services and cleared the entries in my hosts file.
Other sites work fine, even other video sites. Sometimes I can search on Google.com but it's intermittant. Gmail opens after a lengthy amount of time. Rarely, I can get to Youtube, but all videos remain blank and will not even play the preroll ad.
Currently, trying to navigate to Youtube, it says "The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading."
I am currently using a PC running Windows 7 64bit.

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.google.com.





The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
moments.
If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.
If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Alright so at the store I work at we have a computer that we use for the register. Up until like last week or two weeks ago we were able to use the internet explorer to go online but all of a sudden one night we were on and then we came in the next day and every address you typed in brought you to Google. And when I typed in the Yahoo Mail address it brought me to Gmail. My boss said he didn't put any sort of blocker on...he had one of my coworkers calling Comcast to see if it was a problem with the internet. We've run virus software there was nothing. Any advice on how to get it to let us get to other websites?
 

A:Work computer will only go to Google sites...Help!

Nothing installed on the computer could redirect one web page to a completely different one. If you type mail.yahoo.com into the Address bar in the browser, and you're redirected to mail.gmail.com, I'd have to see it to believe it.

Sleep, stand by or hibernate?

First of all - I have a laptop. I dont quite get the difference between all three. What I normally do is, when I want to go for a few hours, I just close my laptop, and thats it. Then after I get home I open it again to be used. Overnight, though, I just simply shut it down.

Question is, what I did above - is it called standby or sleep?

Forgetting my method above, what is the best way that will do minimum harm to my computer yet saves most energy? Is it sleep standby or hibernate?
Thank you Bleepingcomputer people

A:Which one will do minimum harm to my computer

Sleep is a power-saving state that allows a computer to quickly resume full-power operation (typically within several seconds) when you want to start working again. Putting your computer into the sleep state is like pausing a DVD player?the computer immediately stops what it?s doing and is ready to start again when you want to resume working.

Hibernation is a power-saving state designed primarily for laptops. While sleep puts your work and settings in memory and draws a small amount of power, hibernation puts your open documents and programs on your hard disk, and then turns off your computer. Of all the power-saving states in Windows, hibernation uses the least amount of power. On a laptop, use hibernation when you know that you won't use your laptop for an extended period and won't have an opportunity to charge the battery during that time.

Hybrid sleep is designed primarily for desktop computers. Hybrid sleep is a combination of sleep and hibernate?it puts any open documents and programs in memory and on your hard disk, and then puts your computer into a low-power state so that you can quickly resume your work. That way, if a power failure occurs, Windows can restore your work from your hard disk. When hybrid sleep is turned on, putting your computer into sleep automatically puts your computer into hybrid sleep. Hybrid sleep is typically turned on by default on desktop computers.

That is from Microsoft.com. Standby is the hybrid sleep mode. On a Windows based co... Read more

I was told by a reasonably knowledgeable person that it's best not to play online jigsaw puzzles because it is hard on one's computer. I used to enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles on the computer and wonder if there is truth to this advice. He said there is so much involved in making an online jigsaw puzzle function that this would wear out the computer faster than with other use. I'd appreciate any comment from a technologically savvy person. Thank you in advance.

A while back, I had to take my computer to my univeristy's ResNet to get it fixed because I couldn't gain access to it because I thought someone hacked into it and changed my password (I was wrong). When I got my computer back, it had a bunch of different anti-virus softwares on it, one of which was ComboFix. I am unsure about this program. What exactly does it do, and does it pose any danger to my computer? I'm worried that when I connect to my external hard drives, all my data will be lost on them. Is this possible?Edit: Moved topic from General Security to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

A:What is ComboFix and can it do any harm to my computer

ComboFix is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for general public or personal use. As such, no one should be using Combofix unless instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert who can interpret the logs. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer.

turn off all active protection softwarepush the "windows key" + "R" (between the "Ctrl" button and "Alt" Button)please copy and past the following into the box ComboFix /Uninstall and click OK.Note the space between the X and the /Uninstall, it needs to be there.

can you update the adw cleaner I have tried to use the one through you have here and my computer says that it will harm my computer help me please

A:adw cleaner will harm my computer

Certain embedded files that are part of legitimate programs and specialized fix tools (like AdwCleaner), may at times be detected by some anti-virus and anti-malware scanners as suspicious, a Risk Tool, Hacking Tool, Potentially Unwanted Program, a possible threat or even Malware (virus/trojan) when that is not the case. This occurs for a variety of reasons to include the tool's compiler, the files it uses, whether files are compressed or packed, what behavior (routines, scripts, etc) it performs, any registry strings it may contain and the type of security engine that was used during the scan. Other legitimate files which may be obfuscated, encrypted or password protected in order to conceal itself so they do not allow access for scanning but often trigger alerts by anti-virus software.When flagged by an anti-virus or security scanner, it's because the program includes features, behavior or files that appear suspicious or which can potentially be used for malicious purposes. Compressed and packed files in particular are often flagged as suspicious by security software because they have difficulty reading what is inside them. These detections do not necessarily mean the file is malicious or a bad program. It means it has the potential for being misused by others or that it was simply detected as suspicious or a threat due to the security program's heuristic analysis engine which provides the ability to detect possible new variants of malware. Anti-virus scanners cannot distin... Read more

This is bugging me for a whole day. I am developing a PHP web application in Apache server and it seems to work well with all major browsers even IE8. The only problem is with IE9. Basically my applicatoin lets users download a 30 day trial which is an exe file. At the download prompt, the dialog says "This type of file could harm your computer".
Some websites like red-gate.com and microsoft.com allows downloading of exe files but without this warning in IE9. What am I missing here?? I have some possible causes for this problem:
1.) Is this specific only to Apache hosted websites? Its because red-gate and microsoft.com are hosted in IIS/ASP.NET platform.
2.) The exe file is not digitally signed?
3.) Or this is simply a bug in IE9?
I would like the message "This type of file could harm your computer" to be completely remove when users are downloading the exe files using IE9. Any thoughts? I believe this thread would be very helpful to other developers encountering this problem. Thank you!

A:This type of file could harm your computer in IE9 Only

when you download things they are usually signed which means they a recognised for being safe things to download. If things are not signed then browsers will reject them for security reasons.

Just wondering, for example today my brother was shutting it down, but he turned it off at the plug while it was still mid-shut down for some reason, must've got bored waiting. Anyway, i think it says to wait while it shuts down, so there must be some reason to shut it down properly. Anyone know anything about this, can it do any harm etc (we do normally shut it down properly by the way, we arent that bad).

A recent contact of mine whom I've contracted to do some web design for me has linked me several example sites / templates that he created.  However, I get an odd feeling when I visit these pages as if there's something just slightly off about them.  I fear that just by visiting them I've put my computer at risk.  Could I have an experienced user look them over safely to see if anything fishy is on them?
I will provide the website URL in a PM to experienced Bleeping Computer specialists only so no one accidentally clicks on them that shouldn't.

A:Are these websites infected / running scripts that could harm my computer?

Or...seeing you use Firefox, you could install the Web of Trust (WOT) add on, and gain some insight from its experience.

I know that having multiple antivirus programs can harm your computer because of RAM being eaten up, false positives, and all thatbad stuff, but I mean like Spybot Search and Destroy and Malwarebytes. Also, if it is harmful to keep programs like DDS, GMER, and ComboFix without using them (I have ComboFix saved to the desktop just in case I need it, I have NOT used it nor intend on using it unless instructed to by someone trained in its use)

A:Can multiple Anti-malware programs harm your computer?

Hello, no they will not physically harm the pC. Use only One AV,Firewall and Antimalware actively. keep the rest for on demans scanning. They need to be updated prior to a scan.Remove Vundofix it is outdated. MBam is batter than that. Remove DDS, GMER, and ComboFix. These tools should be downloaded fresh at each use. No one should be using ComboFix unless specifically instructed to do so by a Malware Removal Expert who can interpret the logs. It is a powerful tool intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. Please read the pinned topic ComboFix usage, Questions, Help? - Look here.

Hi, I have a theoretical question.
If someone shares with me an infected file though email or online cloud like Google Drive for instance, or if someone uploads an infected file to Google Drive. Can opening the infected file from Google Drive such as a video or music infect the computer that it's being played on even though it's not being downloaded, just opened and run directly from the online cloud service?

Thank you to whomever can answer me, I appreciate it.

Ok, first off let me just say that this all began with a stupid mistake on my part. I learned my mistake and any laughing at my current situation is fine since I completely deserve it.

The story starts with me trying to do a favor for my mom. She had a game she wanted to install and she wanted my help. I found out that she didnt have the CD-key on her and I did something in which started everything. I downloaded a key-gen off the net. Now, this was before I heard of "safe" DL sites such as (edit by Done_Fishin - ILLEGAL CONTENT), so needless to say the file in which I got wasnt the friendliest of sorts.

It wasnt a very active virus if thats what it was. (I still havent found out what it was, but ill get to that later.) The only thing it seemed to do was when I started up an internet browser, it took a good 30 seconds to load the main page where it used to take less than 1 second. Then after lets say 2 minutes of browsing, the next page took another 30 seconds.

Thats fine I thought to myself, I could live with this. But what really got me was that when I went to a streaming website and tried to watch a video "IE: Youtube, Veoh, Googlevid" It would be fine for a while, then my browser would freeze, id have to close it, then when I tried to start up the browser again, it wouldnt. Id get the little loady icon on my cursor, then it would go away and nothing would happen.

Thats what bothered me. So I tried using what Anti-virus I had (Avast) but it c... Read more

A:Accidently caused harm on my computer. Tried to fix it, wound gets infected.

Hi & Welcome .. It's a hard lesson but one that will be well learnt .. PAY for software that you want to use .. if you don't have the key , DON'T download keygens .. 99.9% are holding a hidden payload ..

We don't support or condone the use of pirated software NOR the advertising of sites that someone believes is safe .. there is NO such thing as a free lunch .. so you'll note that I have erased those from your message ..

You need help from the security people over at hijackthis, so take a wander over there, read the rules, follow the 5 steps and then make a new post. DO NOT start advertising or talking about sites, you will never get any help.

Keep your post to the point, tell them what you have done and then sit back & be patient. Sometimes it takes a few days for them to get around to someones post. If you haven't heard anything from a TEAM member after 3 or 4 days then add a new post to your thread with JUST the word BUMP in it but delay as long as possible .. those guys are very busy and respond to unanswered posts first .. they can see what posts have been answered by looking at the post count and NOT looking at the post .. any subsequent post to the thread will boost the post count.

Good Luck

I have an infected laptop running XP Pro SP3. It had Spyware Protect 2009 on it but I was able to stop the sysguard.exe process and delete sysguard.exe from the Windows subdirectory and from the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\....\Run registry hive. There is still at least one other major problem. IE 7 is redirected to display "internet explorer warning visiting this web site may harm your computer" most of the time. I can get to google sometimes and even search something but when I try to follow a link - I get the redirection message. It also prevents me from running a system restore and most of the scanning software such as malwarebytes, SDfix and several others. I was able to run HijackThis but when I tried to post the report, it redirected me again so I saved the log file to a thumbdrive and logged onto an uninfected computer to post this.

Please help me. I am having several problems that I've never had before with my computer and I am now convinced that it is hi-jacked and infected with malware.

The only protection I have used since I got the computer is avast antivirus protection and piriform ccleaner. I have had no malware, spyware or viruses on this computer in the past. I've had it for almost a year.

However my computer has since yesterday (i think) become infected. It has not slowed down much, but whenever I use Google, it redirects me to random sites. Many websites I visit regularly that have never had pop-up ads before now have pop-up ads.

When I went to check my e-mail in Hotmail, I received this message constantly:

"Please refresh your browser window. When you access your Windows Live Hotmail account from more than one computer, we ask you to sign in again to help keep your account private and secure."
At this point I decided to install Spybot, however the website was blocked. I went to download.com and downloaded it and attempted to install but I was unable to, receiving this message:

"Error sending request. The server name or address could not be resolved."

I just installed ad-aware and did a full scan and it found one malware agent and supposedly fixed it, but after rebooting all of these issues are still occuring.

So this brings me to here and now. I just downloaded Trend Micro HijackThis and here is my log:

Hey Guys,

I sure hope someone can help me with this one. The problem is basically what the title says - any link clicked on via Google is redirected to an ad site, a dead site, or some kind of anti-spyware site (seldom the same site), pretty much all Anti-Virus anti-spyware sites are inaccessible unless visited via a proxy, and likewise no programs can update via the internet.

I read somewhere that it could be in the windows Hosts file redirecting traffic, but there is nothing like that in there. Really clueless here. Here are my logs.

I would very much appreciate your help with this. It?s driving me Crazy. When clicking on links using Google search pages, I am relentlessly redirected to other commercial sites, many infected and most of them sticky. I must copy and paste the URLs to reach the correct site. Even that can be overridden. The same is true of Yahoo search to a lesser degree. Once redirected, an AVG ?Threat Blocked? window often comes up with a basketful of Trojans. MalwareBytes etc. have neither detected nor fixed it.Wow. Things have gotten nasty out there!

I have been having problems with my internet ever since I was infected from an attack java ad on a website. The attack left a few adware and malware problems that were easily wiped with Spybot and MalwareBytes. The only remaining problem left is every time I search from google and click a search result, the result redirects to a reported attack site, an ad site that relates to my search results, or simply a javascript that my MSE active scan detects as an attack and is cleaned. I have found that it happens way less often when I right click and open in a new tab, but it still happens, leaving me frustrated as I have to click a search result several times to get to what I want. I have tried to use Bing too, and the same problem happens. One thing I have noticed that might help is the fact that sometimes when my internet is going slow, I can catch a url (after clicking a search result) with an ip address. It leads me to think that my results are being proxied to the resulting attack sites. Please help me as soon as someone can, this is quite a nuisance that I fear is slowly degrading my already degrading computer.

This problem will spontaneously go away once in a while but always comes back. I've tried solutions I found online about 'hosts' files but didn't work. Any help is much appreciated! I tried to adhere strictly to the instructions found on the 'preparation guide'. Here is the DDS log, I ran GMER and it said 'no modifications found' or something to that effect.

It first started when I kept getting this javascript error every time a popup would come up. I tried to search the error code in google and found out that every time I click a link, I get redirected.

I also don't know if this is related, but I have bellsouth internet and on a regular basis I have a ping of around 90, but recently, it's been about 2000 with a jitter of around 1500. However, when I'm in a skype call with a friend from Cali., it goes back down to 90 and stays that way til we hang up. I don't know if it's related or not, but if it's not, I just really need the first problem fixed.

Hi all,

My PC appears to be infected, but nothing is detecting it, including Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.

I'm experiencing tons of redirects on site loads, e.g. typing in a site into the address bar, Google searches, etc. as well as inappropriate popup ads.

Could someone please assist me in some next steps as to how to remove these redirect attacks I'm experiencing?

Thanks -

Best,

Anthony

This is one of the most difficult problems I've faced with Windows.

MSIE 8 will not bring up google.com. It works fine on Bing.com, Yahoo.com, etc.

I can go to most any site and it works, (EXCEPT certain pages on the MS website, google.com, etc)

But if I try to go to a ssl site, https://.... it will either time out, or only show the text and nothing else, or just give an error msg that the page does not exist.

Windows Update also fails. gives error number 0x80072EE2.

I have scanned for viruses, using the MS safety scanner, Forticlient and Mcfee all report nothing. AVG does report hooks into atapi and 3 other files. I read as much as I could on these notices and most people online felt these were false positives. Since everyone other program has not alerted to these I have not been too concerned.

I have tried every solution listed here:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/813444

except no. 6.

I reset MSIE to all the defaults. no diff
I tried to reinstall MSIE 8 by going to the Ms website with Opera (which also works fine) and downloading the stand alone version of MSIE 8 and it installed, but give several errors and rebooted automatically.

When I ran the sfc /scannow it did it's thing had me put the CD in the drive and copied files over... about 60% of the way it said I had the wrong windows CD. The computer originally came with Windows XP Media Edition sp2 and I had upgraded it to Sp3. The CD I was using was Widows XP pro with SP3 from another computer. Sh... Read more

A:MSIE 8 won't show Google but bing, yahoo okay. Most non-SSL sites okay, SSL sites not

Okay, I solved one part of this myself. I noticed on MS answers that someone said to make sure SSL 2 was checked under advanced. I had reset all parameters in MSIE to default, so I just assumed it would be. But I checked and found it was not. So I enabled it and so far, good signs. google.com redirects to https://www.google.com and it works now.

However other secure sites are having some trouble with images/graphics. The page starts to load but does not complete sometimes.

On one of them I got an error msg. I've attached a screen capture.
And windows update still does not work.

We just started having this problem today at one of our computers at work, we run on Windows XP. Every time I navigate to a new web page (even here), I get a pop up warning:

Hi, I have recently added a wireless router to my desktop at home. The router is Linksys WRT54G v2. and my modem is Westell by Verizon. The wired connection with my dekstop works fine, and I have changed several settings on 192.168.2.1 address, from changing the local ip to 192.168.2.1 from 192.168.1.1, and changed my SSID to a unique name to changing the channel from 6 to 11, as well as removing the passphrase and changing key 1. My wireless connection on my laptop is able to connect to my wirless network, but can only acess google websites, such as google mail and google news. Google even gives me search results, but I cannot acess the search websites, and I cannot acess any other website such as hotmail or msn or nytimes or anything. I use Windows XP on both my laptop and computer. Please help!!! I have been at this for a good amount of time, and I am exhausted on what to do next. My linksys router indicates that internet, wlan, and everything is on since all those lights are solid. Please help!!

Hi,

I have been getting this issue for a while and haven't been able to fix it. This is a business computer and use it to access google a lot. I have followed advice elsewhere and checked hosts file, dns settings, malwarebytes scan, etc... but none of this has helped so far.

Every search that I do in google and elsewhere (ex: hotmail) gets redirected to places that have the ip 63.209.69.107 and other sites.

Any help is greatly appreciated

I can't seem to use Google-related websites, especially blogger.com where I go and update blog everyday. I can't even use Google search because it hijacks my browser and redirect me to other pages. This happens on all browsers. So I am forced to use Yahoo search instead. Site-related instead of browser-related?

Hello, right where do I start?

A few weeks ago I believe I had some sort of trojan on my computer which resulted in me having the same problems as I'm having currently i.e When I click on a google link I am redirected back to google by some ixfind.com, well i thought I fixed that but this morning when I made a google search a similar situation occured but this time before I was redirected to google my browser displayed a find28.com?

I'm getting really sick of this and would appreciate any help given.

Some other information is that I have tried to remove it with malwarebytes, it said that it had had found a few trojans etc but when I reboot my system the problem still persists, I also tried to run combofix, but it gave me a message saying that combofix was compromised and that I may have a file patching virus?

Dear TSG Forums, I'm wondering if someone could help me.

As of today I seem to have contracted some form of re-direct virus. I was googling for a live journal blog and when clicking a google result I was redirected to a page with the title 'Malware Warning'. The page then went on to read: 'Visiting this website may damage your computer!' it then advised me to return to my previous or visit StopBadware.org. I did neither and closed the page.

However, now it seem that whatever I search for with Google generates the same page including site well known to me such as Facebook and Hotmail.

Malwarebytes has found nothing and beyond this I'm stumped. I'm running Firefox, I've not tried using Google in IE as it just crashes on this computer. Other search engines seem to be working fine.

Any help would be really gratefully received! Thanks for reading.

Hello HaileyBailey,

Welcome to TSG,

Go to the link below to learn what StopBadware.org is. In particular you will see this line:
On January 31, 2009, all of Google's results (including google.com and stopbadware.org) were briefly flagged as malware for almost 40 minutes.Click to expand...

I think that is what happen to you.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/StopBadware.org

Now

I notice your Java is out of date, older versions are vunerable to attack.

Please download JavaRa to your desktop and unzip it to its own folder

Run JavaRa.exe, pick the language of your choice and click Select. Then click Remove Older Versions.
Accept any prompts.
Open JavaRa.exe again and select Search For Updates.
Select Update Using Sun Java's Website then click Search and click on the Open Webpage button. Download and install the latest Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version for your computer.
It might be worth just having a look at things to check nothing is there.

Sometimes when I enter an URL Google redirects me at first to a "safety" web page telling me that the following (original) webpage could harm
my computer.

How dont want such intructions by Google.

How can I trun them off forever (in IntExp 9)?

Peter

A:Disable prompt "this webpage can harm your computer"?

That is a safeguard against you becoming infected and pops up because the URL has been Black Listed.

A workaround is to find another download site for the program - if they are the sites that produce this alert - otherwise you will need to change your browsing habits or you will end up with serious problems and will require the services of TSF's expert security team.

Google is my default search, no problems many years. My browser is the latest Firefox, last week it started that now I canít use google search or just about any site that is a Google site. I put in a search item and/or try to navigate to any google site and google times out, all the time, other google sites take a long time to load, or they time out also, this problem is now more then two weeks old. I have no problems searching with other search engines. Now, I am beginning to have problems with any other addresses.

Hi friens....?

What is the meaning of Pop-ups? will they Harm our PC??

whenever, I am surfing the Internet, it will show your IE blocks the
Pop-ups??

pls help me???

thank you

A:What r Pop-ups in IE?will dey Harm d PC??

You can enable/disable pop-ups via IE Tools menu, Pop-up Blocker; also configure Settings.

Pop-ups are those separate dialogs that so up on WEB sites. Most are advertisements, but others are used when you clicks a site's Help (for example) or any other site function where they use non-advertising Pop-ups.

What you really MAY want is an Add Blocker, which will block only advertisement pop-ups and side-panels. But even Add Blockers MAY cause problems in sites that require adds to work. Example; MSN Videos have add videos that run between the videos you select, an active Add Blocker will prevent the video playing.

At home and work I use 2 browsers, IE6 and Maxthon. Maxthon comes with an integrated Add Blocker & Pop-up Blocker (and more).

So I run IE6 with the Pop-up Blocker disabled and Maxthon with both Add Blocker & Pop-up Blocker enabled.

RELATED ISSUE: Browser security

To protect your system from malware that comes in via your Browser, I highly recommend SpyBot Search and Destroy (donationware) Which we use at work (I'm the local IT Tech) and I use at home since Win3.1 days.

The Browser protection is provided by the Immunize function. It immunizes your browser from malware intrusions.

Notes on SpyBot S&D:After a definition Update, immediately run SpyBot Immunization (scan is optional, but suggest monthly)
DO not install Shredder and Context menu options, nor use TeaTimer

Hiya.. I'm running Windows XP (with SP2) through an ethernet Netgear wired modem/router on a 2Mb connection with Orange. Have been for the past four or five years. And then yesterday, completely out of the blue, my internet broke. Symptoms:

- Can only get onto Google.com and a few other sites, and those seem totally random. Google searches work fine, but I can't go to any of the links except for the very few exceptions. Hotmail, Myspace, Gamespot and a bunch of other frequently visited sites just time out, even after being left for like half an hour or so. Interestingly it is the same sites that work each time, but it's about 1 in 50.
- It's not my connection - my Outlook is working just fine, as is my XBox Live, which uses the same router.
- I've not installed anything at all, or fiddled around with any settings or anything, the only thing I'd done the night before was go on a couple of sites.
- My ISP has awful tech support, but according to their broadband troubleshooting screens, everything is working at their end.

It's been like this for two days now, last night I tried a bunch of measures to make it work, none of which did anything:

- Uninstalled Norton Internet Security 2007
- Cleared all temporary internet files
- Reset IE7's settings to 'default'
- Did the 'repair' thing in IE7's browser options
- Installed Firefox 2.0

And the same problems happened every time. And before anyone asks, I'm writing this on a works computer ;)

Sorry if I've put thi... Read more

A:Can only access Google and some other sites

Try downloading FireFox, if the same problems exist, then the sites are probably being filtered by your router, firewall or some other software.

If you can access the sites with FireFox, then the problem is with IE

Hi,

Google links have been re-directing to sites such as Happilli, Gimme Answers, Yellow Pages, and another one I did not get the name of.

We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read. Also, attachments require us to download and open the reports when it is easier to just read the reports in your post.Please read every post completely before doing anything.
Pay special attention to the NOTE: lines, these entries identify an individual issue or important step in the cleanup process.Please provide feedback about your experience as we go.
A short statement describing how the computer is working helps us understand where to go next, for example: I am still getting redirected, the computer is running normally, etc. Please do not describe the computer as "the same", this requires the extra step of looking back at your previous post.NOTE:...

Hi
recently i have been having problems were google would redirect me to random advertisment sites

I have AVG anti virus and Spyware on my system, and that only seems to find generic tracking cookies when i search with it
I have used Malbytes Malware which discovered a Trojan but that claimed to remove it, though i am still getting re-directed, and i have also used Clamwin which finds nothing as well Malbytes didnt say what Trojan it was, think it was labelled as Generic.Trojan but i might be wrong but further scans with Malbytes leads to nothing being detected

I also use Zone Alarms free firewall, this was a older version till i got the virus and paniced and updated to the latest i could find ( i know i shoulda done it before )

Hello,

My Google search results will occasionally get redirected to places like infosmash.com. There are no other issues but this from what I have seen. I have scanned many times with malwarebytes and AVG 9.0 and I have found nothing. I do not think i have a emulation software and below is my DDS log. I could not run gmer since the options in the sticky are disabled.

All this started happening after I cleaned my computer of Trojans a few weeks back and did not notice the redirects until recently and mistook them for accidental clicks on google ads.

Hi,

I recently installed Google Chrome and since then I have having problems, being redirected to ad sites randomly when I click on Google links. I've tried run full and quick scans with Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, AdAware and SpyBot - in both normal and safe mode and every time each program finds different infections; mostly in the form of cookies for bad sites but one or two different malicious files appear each time. However, on reboot there viruses keep returning.

Any help would be so appreciated.

Hello,

For the past four days I've been dealing with the SKYNET Trojan. I've googled it and found that others have had the same problem but a good solution has not been posted. Please help!

Symptoms: When I click on the search results provided by google.com or yahoo.com the website gets redirected to some advertisement site rendering my search meaningless. This is very frustrating.

I have run SpyBot S&D, Windows Defender, and AVG and they find nothing. However, overnight I have run Windows LiveOne Care and it has found 3 theats but was only able to get rid of one. The ones that it was unable to get rid of have the following names according to LiveOne Care:

Trojan: Win32/Aluteon.BZ
C:\winnt\system32\skynetmejpmyxe.dll

VirTool: Win32/Obfuscator.ET
C:\winnt\system32\skynetbpdgwbar.dll
C:\winnt\system32\drivers\skynetyxjcxdpk.sys

When I try to look for these files they DO NOT exist. I don't know what this means!

I have run DDS and have posted the log here. I have also attached the ATTACH file. I hope I have followed the instructions properly. THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!

Hi,
Today I started having a problem, and it seems to be getting worse. The problem is that I can't get to www.google.com via my browsers, both IE and Firefox. I can get to other web sites. From the command prompt, I could PING www.google.com, and got back 216.239.37.104.

Seems weird, I looked every I could think but not really sure where this kind of thing is controled. I ran Spybot, Windows Defender, and Adaware all today after this started. Spybot and Windows Defender reported everything was fine. However, while I was poking around, I opened the Windows Firewall progaram and was looking at it, while I was doing that Windows Defender popped up and reported something was doing something it wasn't supposed to be doing : BrowserModifier:Win32/Matcash and WD offered to remove it. I clicked OK.

Then I noticed that a program named chuck.exe in a temporary directory had an exclusion in the firewall, so I removed the exclusion. I looked in the directory where the firewall said the program lived, nothing was there.

Then I downloaded, installed, and ran Adaware. It found all kinds of things and removed them all, one of which it could not remove until I rebooted. I think it was named virtualdns.dll, but I failed to write the name down.

Anyway, Adaware reports everything is ok now, but still I can't get to www.google.com, and also now not my gmail account (it appears my login has expired and gmail is trying to get to google.com to verify my information). ... Read more

Hi all. This is my first post. I am not an idiot when it comes to computers but I am no where as smart with computers as most of you on this site. My problem is that sometimes when I click on links from Google, I get redirected to ads and sites such as InfoMash. What I did was search for advice on the problem and I downloaded Malwarebytes, and cleaned out my computer. I also downloaded CC Cleaner. And Spyware Terminator as well. While these services did find some problems, they were eliminated. Yet, I am still having the same problem. So I downloaded ComboFix and this is the log that came out: (please help me on what to do next or what any of this log means) Thanks.

I have a wireless router & modem and all other computers can access google (not networked). One other was networked previously and could access google, but we no longer have that computer.

This has been going on since my computer was attacked by a virus several months ago.... I really tried to follow all your instructions for posting but for some reason, I can not see the "Attach.txt" icon on my desktop so it may not be included below. This took several hours to do given my level of computer savy. I really appreciate your help.

Thank you,

I found the Attach.txt and unzipped it I will try to attach it to this message below. I opened it and the first thing it said is to not post it publicly, and it would not attach below. So I do have the Attach.txt file available when you are ready to address this post... Thank you

Hello everyone,I have been a big fan of bleeping computer for a while now. It has always helped me to read similar problems faced by other folks and fix my own computer.However, I am in a fix now and have not found many threads related to the problem Im having. So I thought Id ask for help.....I am working at a small office with about 5 computers. We have avg 8.5 installed on all of them, apart from MBAM and spybot.Just a few days back, my browser started acting weird ( Mozilla firefox). It would redirect me to some other site when I click on any links after a google search. I thought it was an adware problem and ran mbam and spybot. spybot found a few adwares and I gladly deleted them. However, it still gives me the same problems. I tried running various online scanners like trend housecall, bit defender, Microsoft live one care, mbam , panda online scan and a few other rootkit healers. None of them found any problems with my system.I downloaded other browsers like chrome and opera to check if it was an issue with the browser. However, all of them started getting the same problems after a restart. The only browser that doesnt seem like its infected is the IE8. Also when the site is redirected, it shows an opposite '6' number on the addressbar jst before the site link. by opposite '6' I mean that a 6 the other way round. Not sure if its of much help, but just giving out info that I know.I read another guy having the same problem on bleeping computer, but was kind of scared to... Read more

IE11 - Windows 7

We use a proxy server in my company which is configured manually in IE, in Internet Properties > LAN Settings. I've added the intranet stuff in the Exceptions text area like this: *.domainname.com;192.*;172.*

But when I try to access a DVR on another subnet. IE goes to Google which doesn't bring any result! I can ping the DVR from my office (another subnet) with no problems. I disabled the search from the address bar, it says the page can't be displayed! I can access the printers and other devices there and IE doesn't go to Google for them. Accessing the DVR from within that subnet is fine.

Chrome goes to the DVR, but asks to install an add-in which never works.

A:IE goes to google for some intranet sites

When browsing to the site(s), make sure you're adding in http or https before the address because IE doesn't automatically add it (Chrome however, does).
