Google search brings up blank page/previous redirect

Unread postby wallyspam » March 18th, 2010, 9:25 pm

Hi all. recently I stumbled on a website that loaded up a pop up that was hard to close. It kept popping up dialogue boxes that took forever to get through. Since then Google had been redirecting me to random spam sites. I did do some sort of fix, I believe with a malware type program. Cant remember I ran it and forgot about it. UNTIL I started up google once more and instead of redirects, I get blank pages. I have to open 5-7 tabs before one will open the page. I downloaded a winsockfix that I found reported would fix this. It didnt. I installed AVG anti virus, and spybot, neither found anything. I got a hijack this log and I dont see any odd things here. (Cant tell if this is related but today I had to reset my router as it was not connecting to this pc, or my wifi on iPod Touch). So here goes, Im wondering if it played around with my dns server settings or something, people have been saying this on other forums.

We're sorry, but it is necessary to close your topic because you have replied to it prior to receiving a response from a helper.

Due to adding on to your topic with your second post it is highly unlikely that you would have received a response. Our helpers are looking for topics with zero responses. When you post replies to your own topic, it no longer has zero responses, and so it appears that you have received help when in fact, you have not.

If you still require help, please open a new thread in the Malware Removal forum and wait for assistance. Please do not run additional programs and/or post additional logs. Just your HijackThis log and Uninstall List to start with is adequate. Your helper will ask for additional logs as needed. DO NOT reply to your own topic until you have received a response from a helper. Be patient. There are others who have been waiting longer than you, so do not expect an immediate reply.
