The Google Redirect Virus is a “browser hijack” virus which will send your desktop computer to dangerous websites when you are redirected online. When not infected, Windows will be able to send you to the true website, but if you have the Google Redirect Virus, the virus will “add” its own websites into the redirect action, leading your PC to send you to unpleasing websites. This will happen for most 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.
Few people know this, but when you click on a link on the search engine, it won’t take you to the page you’re searching for straight away. In point of 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 measurement. All search engines reroute your results, meaning that if you have the redirect virus, it’s going to show when you look for something online.
The reason why this virus is difficult to eliminate is because it doesn’t leave any “footprint” 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 change the redirect settings for Windows and then disappear. This means that most antivirus programs are ineffective to remove it.
As you probably know, the Redirect Virus is actually a family of several viruses, and therefore it can not be removed with a single 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 probably the most troublesome virus to remove right now, which is why some specialists 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 countless different strains or variations, our approach uses several different methods to remove every trace of these viruses. As an added boon, this also means that our solution actually removes most other viruses your computer may have AND speeds up your computer all at once.
