Hey folks!

Very frustrated by the google redirect. Based upon timing it came down with a Java update late last Fall. I have tried some rudimentary efforts at removal via the regular litany of spyware and malware removal programs (Malwarebytes, Spybot, SpyHunter, UnHackMe, etc.) to no avail. Running AVG 2012 (subscription) as the primary AV program. Win7 platform for the computer.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for any assistance.

Hello and welcome, mcburrs: :)

It does sound as if you may be infected.

We can't work on malware diagnostics and removal in this sub-section of the forum.

So, for expert help, please follow the recommendations in this sticky topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.

Thanks,
