How do I remove a Google Redirect Virus?? My TrendMicro and Windows Defender are not finding it.

The virus seems to be attacking when I click on any search results and sends me to a whole other page. Plus this virus has been giving me pop ups of other websites connected to google. For example a newspaper website talking about google.

I, too, am having the exact same problem. MalwareBytes, Adaware, McAfee, and SuperAntiSpyware aren't picking it up either.

Same problem. Symantec and Spybot S & D  don't find it and it's driving me crazy.  Wondering what else it's doing... (like sharing confidential information)

Same problem! This is VERY FRUSTRATING! I too have tried multiple tools to scan for a virus, with no luck. Someone please help!

I do have the same problem, but I forgot to mention that I am OFTEN redirected to Google Images when the next page I was going to is slow (probably also being slow because of the virus?), but I was NOT doing a Google search; I was not even in Google within the history on that web browser.

Hi everyone,

To add to Kaleh's resources, also check out info in the Google Safety Center about keeping your device clean from malware. In particular, here's options for high-quality antivirus products. We can’t vouch for their programs’ effectiveness, but trying the latest versions of any of them often makes a difference. You may also use the site av-comparatives.org to find other anti-virus software and review test results.
