A Cleaner Future
Google Search redirect

Google Search redirect to other sites

No wonder if you are just another victim of that nasty Google search redirect virus which ruined my Online life for almost a month until I found a working Fix. It was a really frustrating experience even for an IT Guy like me!

Actually later on after days of search and trying almost all methods found I figured that the Google search redirect virus is one of most difficult (Shall I say Impossible?) to detect because it does not (I mean it) Leave any traces on your computer at all.

How is that even possible?

Actually, That’s what shocked me once I know how. Well, it’s interesting to know such things you know.

So basically after doing something (I don’t actually remember or can think of what I did which caused my PC to get infected, even though I use all latest security stuff) my browser (Chrome Firefox and even IE) started acting up and doing random redirects.

I Google for something and click the result, It redirects me back to the same page
Sometimes clicking on the result take me to some weird page which I have no idea about
Searched the web a hell lot and tried every tutorial I could find with no results. It just sticks there!
No matter what I do, reboots but still Nothing. It’s still there.

Then I came across a website selling a tool to fix this virus. Ah God I am a Tech by nature and At least my heart was not allowing me to pay for some tool which removes a virus from my computer, but then again I compared the time I spend trying to fight with it and the cost of the removal tool.

I spend around 22 hrs trying to get rid of this virus with no luck so far and had no idea in how long I will fix it whereas the tool was costing around 29$. Compare the price with the value of my time it was well worth it so I decided to give it a go.

And that tool actually fixed the thing and I was back to my normal life. But! As a technician, I was hell curious as to why I was not able to fix it on my own. Well, and the truth I discovered was really scary.

What is Google search redirect virus? and Why its un-detectable?

The Google search redirect virus is a “browser hijack” virus which will send your computer to fake websites when you are redirected online. In normal circumstances, Windows will be able to send you to the correct website when it is redirected, but if you have the Google search redirect virus, the virus will “inject” its own websites into the redirect process, leading your PC to send you to random ones. This will happen for all redirects, not just search engine results… however, as most search engine results will redirect you, that’s where most people see the issue.

Not many people know this, but when you click on 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 in order to track your searches and other metrics. All search engines redirect your results, meaning that if you have the redirect virus, it’s going to show when you search for something online.

The reason why this virus is difficult to remove is that it doesn’t leave any “footprint” or “trace” on your system. Unlike typical virus infections (which will place a fake file/application onto your PC), the Google search redirect virus will just change the redirect settings for Windows and then disappear. This means that most antivirus programs are powerless to remove it.

How can you get your infection fixed then?

You can visit his website to know more about the removal methods. This website is managed by a computer geek, He clearly mentioned that this working method removes the virus at its core – removing the infection from your PC & preventing it from returning. His simple program explained exactly what the virus is and will then removes it automatically.
