Google - This site may harm your computer

Q: Google - This site may harm your computer

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

A:Help!, Google's: this site may harm you computer.... a little strange

I got the exact same problem just now!! I have no idea what's going on!

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.

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.

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.

Next

Please download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from here.
It is important that is saved to your desktop.
Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.
Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.

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

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.

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.

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.

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:Does it do any harm to shut down the computer incorrectly?

It can have some bad effects, It may corrupt system files and lead to a troublesome boot next time round.

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.

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.

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?

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?

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.

Hi All,
I'm having a real frustration with Windows 2003 Server x32 and Internet Explorer 8.
I'm running Dynamics NAV on this server and simply want to backup the DB's to a Google Drive folder so that they get synced to Google Drive nightly.  For this I need to install and sign-in to the Google Drive downloadable application.
However, Google Drive opens up a IE dialog for the sign-in and I get this:

In IE itself I cannot access any Google domain site, including Youtube. (I get the same result as above in the actual browser). I also have Chrome installed on this server, and I
can access all of those sites in Chrome.

I understand that IE8 is no longer supported by Google, and im guessing that this is the issue.  However, I don't think there is a newer version of IE available for Server 2003 x32.
I have done a full reset on IE, run ipconfig /flushdns, checked the host file just in case and nada.  I still get the cannot display error.

Any suggestions?  I just need to get around this dialog to sign into Google Drive , and I'll never need to use IE for any other reason.

Thanks for any help,
Andrew

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.

I can't open www.google.com or any site that has google on it. It starts looking for the site and then it just hangs up and eventually times out. I thought maybe it was a virus, but I am not redirected to any other site, I just can't open that one. I am using a toshiba qosmio laptop F10 and I reformatted the hard drive and reloaded the recovery software to try to get rid of the problem. The only things I have reloaded are Norton Internet Security and Windows live messenger. I tried disabling the Internet security and accessing google.com, but I still can't get it. The wierd part is that I have another computer connected to the same router as my laptop and I have no trouble getting google on it, so I know the site is not down. It worked on the laptop fine until a couple of weeks ago. Accessing any other site works. Any help would be appreciated.

Since a few days after buying my new computer with Vista, something is wrong.
Every now and then, and lately more often, something is very wrong.

For example,
- I go to Google.com and I end up on Microsoft.com,
- go to Gmail.com, end up on webtrends.com,
- go to site X, it loads site Y,
- go to site Y, get an error screen from a random server.

Here are some screnshots in case you want to see.
Screenshot #1
Screenshot #2
Screenshot #3
Screenshot #4
Screenshot #5
Screenshot #6
Screenshot #7: TSF ends up as Google

I thought maybe a DNS issue, but "ipconfig /flushdns" doesn't do anything.
A reboot usually helps, but not always.
Holding CTRL+F5 for a few seconds helps sometimes.

It happends in Microsofts IE7, as well in Mozilla Firefox 2.

It has to be this computer that is the problem, because my XP machines never had this issue, and still don't. They are hookedup to the same router, are online at the same time, and are experiencing no issues.


Has anyone an idea that might cause this?



I've tried Googling, but you get SO many searchresults, and none are even remotely relevant.

A:Go to Google, get MS site instead.

Sounds like a spyware problem to me. It is not a problem with Vista. The smart thing to do is scan for spyware and viruses. If that doesn't fix it, reinstall windows.

Okay, so I have recently downloaded Google Chrome and started using it as a web browser. I remember a couple days ago, it appeared completely normal. However, last night, I noticed after conducting a google search and entering youtube.com, links to ads would appear on top of those websites (links more within google). These were obviously sketchy ones links should not have been there in the first place. So, I uninstalled and reinstalled it. It seemed to be cleared up, but was not. So, I ran superantispyware and it remove adware tracking cookies as a result of both a quick and full scan. I uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome and it slightly worked again without those ads appearing, but reverted back to the same thing, except not appearing on top of youtube. I did research online about it and saw something about removing the unnecessary browser extensions. It was a similar thing that I did for Firefox. So, I removed two extensions that seemed meaningless from Google Chrome's browser, which led the weird ads "not by this site" and "ads not by google" to disappear.

However, I want to know if the problem is truly gone. I wanna make sure there are no hidden problems (spyware, malware, etc) that is involved with this. There is not good information on this topic, so it would be nice to be educated about this not ads by this site thing.

Hi
I just bought a laptop with vista home on it. I turned it on and mostly everything worked right away. Except the internet. I have a wireless network, so I logged into that and it says its working fine. I can turn on internet explorer and the default home page (google) turns on fine. I can search on google, I can go to google images, and I can do anything else google-related. But when I try to go to any other site, it first takes about five minutes to load then says "page cannot be displayed." I searched all over the internet for a solution but I can't find anything. At this point I think I can rule out a hardware issue because this computer is completely new, and I can also rule out the network not working properly because I can actually connect to the internet and do searches, I'm just limited to google.


Any help would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks

Edit: Okay, I tried to transfer a file from my other computer through the network (which the computer says is working fine) and it sees my other computer, I can double click the computer's icon and open up a page that shows me folders like "my documents". However, when I try to select one of the folders it takes a long time to load, then gives me an error message.

This doesn't make any sense to me. It seems like the entire network is not working except for allowing me to use the internet and then only to go onto google.

Anybody have any ideas?

A:Google is the only site I can connect to

I know this was an old thread, but I am having the same problem this user was having: I can load only sites run by Google. Through many searches, I've found other people who described this same problem dating back three years ago, but though it's an old issue, I can't find any fixes for it. Either the user's post goes unanswered (as the previous one seems to be) or people offer all kinds of things to check and try to no avail.

I have three computers. My newer laptop is running Vista Home Premium 32-bit. My desktop also has VHP32, but is not experiencing this problem. I'm on my old laptop now (XP), which also has no problem. I used my newer laptop last night and everything was fine. The sites I visited were the ones I'm often on. I shut down and went to bed. This morning I discovered I could fully access only Google sites -- I found two other sites (nothing to do with Google) that would load halfway (missing most graphics, functions). All three computers use the same router, a Comcast-issued Netgear.

Anyone know what's going on? I hadn't messed with any settings or anything like that.

I run Windows Vista Home Premium, Service Pack 2 on a Dell Insipiron 1525

For the last several hours, I have been receiving a sporadic redirect whenever I use urls that contain google.com

Instead of the regular google page, I am redirect to another site, which appears to be for travel. When I try to access country-specific google sites (such as google.co.in , google.com.hk, google.co.uk and so on), I receive a 403 error. This error extends to mail.google.com and other similar services.
Other search engines do not seem to be affected, however when this problem comes up, I lose access to the Kaspersky and TrendMicro websites

I have looked at the hosts file, which is in Windows\System32\Drivers\etc and it is the same as default. I also noted that there are no extra copies of the host file that show up upon search.

Strangely the problem is intermittent, and appears to have something to do with enabling or disabling of javascript on my browsers. That said, I am yet to figure out what that exact link between the two is.
For the most part, if I leave javascript enabled for some time, the redirect problem starts again. Following this, I disable javascript, open the hosts file as an administrator and save it (it never seems to have any changes), close all my browsers.
After this sequence, occasionally, google begins to work again.

I face the same issue with Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Opera

For example, Google.fr provides search results that are most relevant for users in France; Google.co.jp is the Google domain for Japan. We try to direct users to the site that will give them the most relevant results.Changing your settingsIf you'd rather use a different Google site, like Google.com, no matter where you are, try one of the following tips: * Click the Google.com link on any other domain. * Choose a Google domain manually by visiting the Language Tools page (the section with the flags). * Bookmark http://www.google.com/ncr.

Hi. Just a very quick and (probably) simple question. All of the sudden, when I go to Google, I automatically get to the secure (https) page, not the usual http. Note that this is true for Firefox only, not IE. Is this true for everybody, or is it something specific to my computer? Thanks.

A:Google secure site?

Apparently, certain versions of Firefox will force https if autocomplete is turned on.

However, Google specifically went https a couple of years ago.

I don't know what to do. Lately, when I open Google and type a search, I get redirected to a place in the UK. I've run virus and malware programs and I've done a system restore. No help.
Initially, I noticed when looking through my installed programs, that I had one that looked strange, namely appbario 16 toolbar 6.15.0.27. I uninstalled and also uninstalled ffdshow & haali media splitter. Then I deleted all Google extensions. I thought I had it done but I still have the problem with the redirects, especially when I type directly in the address bar.
I use windows 7 and Google Chrome 29.0.1547.66 m. I have Toshiba Satellite.

A:Google redirects to Unwanted Site

Have you tried deleting Chrome and then redownloading it? Also, does this happen with any other browser? I know you said that your virus and malware scanners did not find anything, but you might want to make a thread over in in the Security Center just to make sure there isn't a nasty little thing hiding within your pc.

Can't get to site from address bar but can by going through Google search.

Have a friend who can't type an address into his address bar using IE. It gives him an error window to "Send" or "Don't send"... and then closes the IE window down.

He can however search for the same website on Google and then click on their link and all is well.

He runs XP and has the latest updates.
Security is set on default.
He uses Windows fire wall and AVG.

I had a lady the other day who had the same exact problem. She was trying to get on "Skyfexfree" and it wouldn't let her but got there through Google.

What's up?

Hello,Truly hope you can help me. I seem to have some kind of malware on my WinXP SP3 home computer. It started misbehaving about 2 days ago - strange processes in task manager, sites would pop up when in either IE8 or Firefox (I use both - mostly Firefox). I had Spybot Search & Destroy, Spyblaster & Avg Anti-Virus running but they did not seem to protect against whatever I got. For a while I could not seem to even run any programs but some-one got me an exe-fix that I ran & then the programs ran again. All appears good now except -1) Both IE8 and Firefox will intermittently bring up a strange website when I click on a Google Search result link or sometimes the site just comes up by itself2) My DVD/CD drive behaves strangely - it no longer has the 'erase' command when you right-click on the drive in Explorer and all files in any CDs I put into the drive shows up as read-only even though they are on a RW CD and I cannot seem to remove the read-only attribute.I installed Sophos Anti-virus and Anti-Rootkit but both scans did not detect any issues.

I apologize if I'm duplicating my previous post, but I can't seem to find it after being informed it was moved to this forum a couple days ago. I haven't received anything since and I can't find the post with a search.

My home page is yahoo. When I do a search, I get results as usual, but when I click on one, another random site appears in the address bar and I end up on google. I haven't really tried to do anything from google, so I'm not sure what would happen if I do, although I've gotten a clue from what others have posted.

I've tried doing a system restore, but for every date I pick, it says it was unable to restore and no changes were made. This computer has been out of my control for an extended period of time, and I know it has has a virus problem about a month ago (some fake virus protection), so right now, I'm kind of afraid to touch anything without guidance.

I ran Norton Virus Scan and it came back with 1 virus threat called Trojan.Adclicker, which except for the redirect to google, seems to mimic the problem. Norton gives instructions for a manual removal, but would like confirmation before proceeding.

One more problem...it's been a while since I've messed around with my computer, but in XP Home, in START, RUN, isn't "configsys" a valid request? When I type it in, it says the file cannot be found? Is this another problem?

Should I start looking for my reinstall disks?

A:IE redirect to random site to Google?

Hello, this should work for you.

Go to Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices.
Scroll down to ?Non-plug and Play Drivers? and click the plus icon to open those drivers.
Then search for ?TDSSserv.sys?
Right click on it, and select ?Disable?
Note: If you select Uninstall, it will install itself again when you reboot the system, so DON?T select Uninstall.
Restart your pc.
You can now update your Antirus/Malware/Rootkit softwares and the go.google rubbish will stop.
Its now up to the Anti-Virus/Malware/Spyware companies to make an effort to stop this, and not rely on simple basic home PC user?s like myself to save the world
In simple terms, TDSSserv.sys is a service/server redirecting all software updates to 127.0.0.1 (your own computer) so they won?t update

Update you Malwarebytes and run full scan. ComboFix is another great utility that will remove it. I would instruct you on how to use it but I am not allowed to. Hopefully a Moderator will chime in and do the instructing on Combofix.

Greetings and blessings to all!

I am not sure where to post this question, but I have a problem today that I did not have last week.
When I type in something, we'll say, 'hummingbirds in Oregon', I then have the opportunity to click on "images", (in Google), which is wonderful. However, last week I could click on any individual image and it would take me directly to the website or web page that the image belongs to. I hope that makes sense.
This is new. Today I do exactly the same thing, but instead of it taking me anywhere, I wind back up in a completely blank Google search page. No matter how many times I have tried it today, same thing each time.
Did I accidentally set something wrong somewhere? I didn't mean to.

Please help me if you can, I'm stuck! Thank you in advance.

A:New Problem w/google image then to a site

Hi Grammy. Welcome to the forum.
So the problem started a few days ago, after working normally?
There has been several posts throughout the net regarding a similar problem to yours.
Always returning to a blank google search.
With this in mind I would first like to rule out the possibilities of any virus or spyware getting onto your computer.
Therefore:-

First, to assist in the elimination of possible virus and/or malware.
I would ask you to please use your Anti-virus full scan program facilities, making sure, you have updated the software first. Please advise us of the results.

If you do not have any anti-virus loaded please go to this link and download Microsoft Security Essentials :- Anti-Malware, Virus, Spyware Protection | Microsoft Security Essentials

Secondly, please download:- malwarebytes Malwarebytes a Malware searching program, again, an updated full scan. Notify results please. Both these programs are Freeware

Once we know what's happening we can move forward.
Thank you.

A:Ie Hijacked To "google" Site (javaclassloader)

Hi,I keep getting hijacked to a "Google" site while using MS Internet Explorer. This is my HiJackThis Log.Well, you do have Google Toolbar installed + Google Desktop search and the main Default page url and search Url is set to Google.This is no Hijack, since Google is no Hijacker but something you installed - or was preinstalled on this computer.So, in this case, check and fix next entries in HijackThis:R1 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Default_Page_URL = www.google.com/ig/dell?hl=en&client=dell-usuk-rel&channel=us&ibd=5070103R1 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,Default_Page_URL = www.google.com/ig/dell?hl=en&client=dell-usuk-rel&channel=us&ibd=5070103If you don't want to use Google anymore, since you think Google is a Hijacker, then also uninstall the Google Toolbar and google desktop search.

Hi,

When I click on a search result in google it will redirect me to another site instead of what is listed in the results. This only happens in Firefox. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling firefox with no success. Any ideas are appreciated.

The other day, I've started running into this on my Windows 7 PC:
 
1) Google Chrome (and only Google Chrome, will redirect to Euro Med Online if I search for Troll Lord Games)
 
2) If searched for similar topics and found some like this:
 
 
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/498445/google-chrome-search-for-visiontek-redirects-me-to-euro-med-online/
 
 
3) doing all the suggestions on these other links hasn't fixed anything
 
4) so - ran about 5 virus scanners, 10 maleware scanners, etc
 
5) WIndows host file is OK
 
6) uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome
 
 
It is only Google Chrome and only (that I've seen so far) when I do a Google search for "Troll Lord Games".   I'll click on the 1st hit in Google and it will take me to Euro Med Com not "Troll Lord Games".    Firefox, IE, Opera do not do this on the same PC.
 
If I search for anything else, I haven't seen this problem.  (So in Google Chrome, if I do a Google Search and click one of the first hits, I go to where I'm supposed to....unless the Search is for "Troll Lord Games", then the first hit which is supposed to be "Troll Lord Games" takes me to Euro Med - the 2nd and 3rd and 4th hit seem to work normally - just the first result seems to be redirected).
 
I've also bounced my router, etc.   No other device I have does this (tablet, wife's laptop, etc).
 
Any ideas?

I don't know what to do. Lately, when I open Google and type a search, I get redirected to a place in the UK. I've run virus and malware programs and I've done a system restore. No help.
Initially, I noticed when looking through my installed programs, that I had one that looked strange, namely appbario 16 toolbar 6.15.0.27. I uninstalled and also uninstalled ffdshow & haali media splitter. Then I deleted all Google extensions. I thought I had it done but I still have the problem with the redirects, especially when I type directly in the address bar.
I use windows 7 and Google Chrome 29.0.1547.66 m. I have Toshiba Satellite.

PS: I've heard back from one of your techies who suggested I post here as well.

When I search for an item via Google and then click on an item, I would be redirected to a website of ads. Also, I am running Norton 360 and have noticed various popups that it had found vatious malware, such as adware. According to Norton, it was fixing and removing the problem.Shortly after I was unable to log in to my PC as administrator. I was able to get in via the Guest account. I chatted with a Norton rep. I did not see him do anything except run a chkdsk. Once he completed this I was able to log in. This did not fix the problem with the redirects.One of the sites I found was for ComboFix. Here is where I must appologize, as I downloaded and ran the program prior to contacting this forum.

Hello, and thank you in advance for your help. I have Windows XP and wireless internet.

My laptop is running incredibly slow, and it seems that all links from search engines are redirected to other sites. They are usually other search engine sites. Every once in a while it directs me to a fake anti-virus software site, where messages warning about malware and asking me to download their program pop up. At that point I have to close Internet Explorer from Task Manager.

I can get the exact messages that pop up, as well as a better description of the "anti-virus" site, next time it comes up.

A few days ago I ran MBAM and found other malware on my computer, and have run it again but it hasn't fixed this problem.

Here is my DDS log, and thanks again

I have Win 7, and for the last two days, have had intermittent issues with reaching any Google site.
I've reset my router multiple times, including a complete power off time off of about 10 minutes.
 
This happens in IE, Chrome, FF, and Opera.  Sometimes I can reach the sites.  I'd estimate it at 20% of the time.  I use Google products heavily for work, and this is my work computer. 
I've checked my hosts file.  Nothing is changed there.  I've ran MalwareBytes and Spybot. 
 
I've flushed my DNS.  I can ping and tracert. 
Sample from FF:
 
Secure Connection Failed
The connection to accounts.google.com was interrupted while the page was loading.
The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.
Sample from Opera:
 
This webpage is not available
The connection to accounts.google.com was interrupted.
Check your internet connection.
Check any cables and reboot any routers, modems, or other network devices you may be using.
Allow Opera to access the network in your firewall or antivirus settings.
If it is already listed as a program allowed to access the network, try removing it from the list and adding it again.

MOST of the time, whenever I do a search in Google and try to click on a website, I am redirected to another "generic" site. This only began happening about two weeks ago. The only way I can get to a website that is in the search results is to manually copy the site address and paste into the address bar which is very aggravating. Also, most embedded links are redirected also.

I have tried running Norton Anti-virus, AdAware, and Windows Defender, but nothing seems to eliminate this problem.

Can someone direct me (in very simple terms) to a solution?

Today when i tried to go to familiar sites using google chrome, i kept getting continuous caption boxes and this message instead to the requested websites.

our system has detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests and not a robot. Then it gives me an ip address and some other info.

I went to a microsoft support site with explorer and the guy said there was a bunch of people using my ip address and he could fix it for $199/ year. Help.

Also...I don't know if this matters but right before this, I had just turned on my computer for the day and noticed it was really slow so i ran combofix. Then i restarted it and the above occured.

Anyone responding, please talk to me like I am a 5 year old. I have using the computer for many years for don't know anything about how it works. thank you.

A:can only go to my aol mail site with google chrome

First of all, never run Combofix unless under supervision as the program can brick your entire machine and force a reinstall of Windows.

Secondly, do not take the "$199/year" deal you hear from Microsoft. I find it odd they would even say that on their forums. I have a feeling you were on incorrect forums.

Does this only happen with Chrome?

Does it only happen at aol.com?

Could you post a screenshot?

Hi,

i have a problem where i type a search term in google for example, clicking on the search results takes me to a completely different page, but trying it a second time takes me to the correct page, this happens in all search engines ive tried.

I have ran adware SE which found a fixed a few problems, but it still have this search engine problem.
I have attached my hijack this log to see if there is anything in there that needs removing.

So we recently redid our networking in our house, changing from two different connections to one that has multiple access points. But ever since we changed I haven't been able to access any site other than google on my windows 8 laptop, for the most part. I have found some sites I can get on by going to subpages, but I believe there have only been two of those. I flushed my DNS cache and still the problem persisted. But I have a feeling it has to do with DNS because on another forum... (Though it was for XP) someone said to tell if it is a DNS problem you can type "ping ?.44.1" ( I forgot the first digit) ?.44.2, ?.44.3 and ?.44.4 and if they ping then it isn't a DNS problem... But they didn't ping. For the most part I have no idea what I'm doing and any help is appreciated. thanks!
