The Google Redirect Virus is a “browser hijack” malware which will send your laptop computer to damaging websites when you are redirected online. When not infected, Windows will be able to send you to the correct website, but if you have the Google Redirect Virus, the virus will “insert” its own websites into the redirect procedure, leading your PC to send you to unpleasing websites. This will happen for all of the redirects, not just search engine results … however, as most search engine results will redirect you, that’s where the majority of people see the issue.
Not many people understand this, but when you go to a link on the search engine, it won’t take you to the page you’re looking for straight away. In fact, Google, Yahoo & Bing will all take you to a special link on Google.com/ Yahoo.com/ Bing.com so as to track your searches and other measurement. All search engines reroute your results, meaning that if you have the redirect virus, it’s going to show when you search for something online.
The main reason why this virus is difficult to eliminate is because it doesn’t leave any “footstep” or “trace” on your system. Unlike typical virus infections (which will place a fake file or application onto your PC), the search redirect virus will just transform the redirect settings for Windows and then fade away. This means that most antivirus programs are ineffective to remove it.
As you most likely know, the Redirect Virus is actually a family of several viruses, and therefore it can not be removed with a particular tool or method. My option is a series of steps that is effective at removing the numerous different variations of the Redirect Virus.
This virus is possibly the most complicated virus to remove right now, which is why some professionals will tell you to just reinstall Windows or replace your computer. These two options put your data and Windows settings at risk and end up being much more expensive to you in both time and money. With my approach, you avoid all that misused time and expense.
And because the redirect virus family has a lot of different strains or variations, our option uses several different methods to remove every trace of these viruses. As an added benefit, this also means that our solution actually removes most other viruses your computer may have AND speeds up your computer at the same time.
The Google Redirect Virus is a “browser hijack” virus which will send your computer to horrible websites when you are redirected online. When not infected, Windows will be able to send you to the correct website, but if you have the Google Redirect Virus, the virus will “inject” its own websites into the redirect process, leading your PC to send you to undesirable websites. Unlike typical virus infections (which will place a fake file or application onto your PC), the search redirect virus will just alter the redirect settings for Windows and then disappear.
