Re-boot into safe mode and run Ewido. When thats finished, run AVG just to check your machine. Please let us know how you got on.

Then, sometimes, when I click on a search result link, some weird page shows up. Mostly German ones, and often genealogie.de. When I go back and click the same link again, I get the proper page. Seems like some subtle virus. But which one ...?

I've been having a similar problem on Vista, and have found that by blovking thrid party cookies I finally get my search results links working again. But I have tried clearing out the cookies from within IE and also several spy-ware and adware removal programs and all fail to find this one. I do not know if I've hit something new but will post in the hijack this forum to see if there is something new...

 Posted: Mon Nov 03, 2008 11:52 pm    Post subject: Certainly a Google Hijack... I had the same thing, too. And I wasn't sure if it was because of the cookies, or if it was virus or what. Also IE was running slow, so I just cleared EVERYTHING (cookies, cache, temp files), rebooted, then ran a vir scan from two diff scans (AVG & Kaspersky) then rebooted again. It seemd to go away after that, so I'm not sure if it's exactly the same thing or what exactly that I did to get rid of it...

I have Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (freeware or something as I didn't pay for it) and its quick scan could find the virus. Here is the webpage: http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php It put this message in the log: Files Infected: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\sysaudio.sys (Rootkit.Agent) -> Quarantined and deleted successfully. and also required a restart. After the restart, things got normal again. I hope that solves the problem for you (if you can find this web page hopefully having access to another non-affected computer environment).

But for those of you in my situation, I have found that if you right-click on the link in the google search results, then choose "Open in new tab," you'll probably get hijacked the first time. But if you do the same thing again, immediately, you always get sent to the correct address. Granted, it's a pain in the ass, but it will get you around the problem until you can find a real fix.

After both came up clean my Google search still mis-directed me. I edited my DNS Host File C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts and deleted the entries that were taking me to the fake Google site.

try flushing the DNS cache
at a command prompt type ipconfig /flushdns

It may also be in IE (if you're using that) I reset all the settings.

I used the ping command to see if the issue was in DNS or IE
