I'm on a pc running Windows 10 and just got this virus. I see very conflicting advice on the web on how to fix it. Can anyone here talk me through it? Thank you!
Without knowing what virus you have...how you got it...or what antivirus product you currently have, I would typically recommend installing the free version of Malwarebytes and see if that helps.
Beyond that I'd suggest investigating some other antivirus products as it seems whatever you're using now failed to protect you.
Thanks. I have Avast, and ran it. It did not discover a virus. I'll try the malwarebytes. I am not aware of having done anything in terms of adding new programs, etc--this morning anytime I search on google it redirects to yahoo. I did clear cache and history, and checked to make sure google was selected as my search engine. None of that has worked so far.
Google search problems anyone?
Yahoo Web site will no longer load
Help -- Google Redirect virus hit me
Viewing images in Bing, Google, Yahoo, etc.
You say "this virus"; what virus is it?
I'm not sure it is a virus. As my thread title says, google is redirecting to yahoo. An internet search on the topic says this is a virus. If not a virus, what would it be? I ran Malwarebytes. It caught and quarantined 3 PUP items, but did not fix the issue. If anyone has ideas, please let me know.
I would reboot into SAFE MODE and run Malwarebytes again
I think I just fixed it. I deleted a couple of unknown apps, such as a game app, although none were loaded recently. Anyway it is no longer redirecting to yahoo. Yahoo!!! Thanks for your help. I wish I knew definitely what I just did to fix it, but it was just random trial and error.
