Default German google? Virus perhaps?

my daughter woke me up the other night to tell me that she had one of those "virus cleaning programs" pop up as she thought our computer had been infected, but this program isn't one I've ever used.

(it tells you your comp. is infected and to click here to clean your PC, but when you click it takes you to a page where you pay for their product.)

I ran a bunch of cleaning programs but I noticed abit earlier that when I did a google search it appears to be a german google page?



Does this mean I still could have a virus on my computer?

Malwarebytes, CCleaner, Norton (free with comcast,) have been run so I'm wondering whats going on?

Thanks in advance.

Usually if it takes you to a page where it says your computer is infected and it starts to scan, its a virus site. It pretty much reads all your info in your HDD. A friend of mine did the same, but his kid was on it. He noticed a lot of virus was placed on his PC after it was on one of those stupid pages.

Boot it in safe mode, run msconfig, select the start up tab, and then uncheck all the bloatware or anything you don't know what it is. I had this a few days ago and thats how I got rid of it.

Run R Kill, then run virus/malware/spyware software.

Exactly... download rKill, then go to your browser options and uncheck "Proxy Server" Under i think it was "Advanced" settings i'm not sure...

Once you do that, run rKill... It'll try to stop it a few times, just keep running it until the windows stop popping up.

Then run update and run malwarebytes, it should quarantine your infection. may be about 10-12 files, including registry entries.

Once that happened to me, I upgraded my antivirus and spyware... Got that Norton.

Netherlands, not Germany.

Good luck figuring that out. I've never seen something change a google page.

I remember one time I had some malware change the settings in my firefox to search a different engine when I used the in browser search bar. I had to dig deep into some advanced settings I didn't know existed to change an internet address that all your searches use to connect with google and perform the search.

I've actually used this knowledge to automatically direct any user search to a specific and hilarious vulgar site. Anyway, try googling things the hard way by going to the actual website and you'll probably find some threads where people fixed the same problem.
