RE: Google got hacked ?! or my comp

Please try this:

First, clean out all Temporary Internet Files from the computer.. Next, follow the steps in the link below to scan your computer with two good, free spyware and trojan removers.. It may take a while, but it should help get a second opinion about the status/cleanliness of your computer:

On a friend or family member's computer, download the Malwarebytes installer and update files from the links below, copy them to a CD or flash drive, then transfer the files to the problem machine and use them. I use the sites below to download the installer file and the manual updater:

Once downloaded and before transferring them to the problem machine, rename the program installer "mbam-setup.exe" file to something else like "Gogetum.exe", then copy the installer file and the update file to a CD or flash drive.. Transfer the file to the problem machine, then install the "Gogetum.exe" file, then run the update to get the program current.. After that, run a full system scan and delete anything it finds.

Malwarebytes Installer Download Link (Clicking on the links below will immediately start the download dialogue window.)

Malwarebytes Manual Updater link

Next, download the SuperAntispyware program and the manual updater from the links below. After running the Malwarebytes tool above, if you still can't download and install it directly from the problem machine, download it on a friend or family member's computer as well. After installing and updating SuperAntispyware, run another full system scan and delete everything it finds as well. As before, you may need to rename the installer file to get the program to install.:


SuperAntispyware Manual Updater

In a few situations, in order for the program to run, it was also necessary to rename the main "mbam.exe" file also after installing it.. It resides in the C:\Programs Files\Malwarebytes Antimalware folder....

Hope this helps.

Re: RE: Google got hacked ?! or my comp


The problem with running a System Restore is that it will reinfect the computer if there are actual malware infections in the system restore files.. So, at this time, I would update both of the programs I mentioned earlier, then restart the computer into Safe Mode with Networking". Once there, click on the link below and download the free online scanning tool to your desktop and run it.. It should be able to run an online scan.. Delete anything it finds.

Once you've scanned the computer using the online scan, then update both Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware while still in Safe Mode with Networking, then run full system scans with them both again.

Hope this helps and let us know how it goes.

You can also try McAfee's free scan service to see if it identifies anything.

thx for your time and help


Re: RE: Google got hacked ?! or my comp

You may also wish to consider monitoring your system a bit closer.

I often recommend Secunia PSI as it beats buying a full blown vulnerabilty scanner, and it's fairly friendly to novice users. I use it on all of my home computers that are running Windows Vista, and Windows 7.

Supports 64 bit as well....

Is your browser still showing those results? Do you get the same results if you were to browse to that page from IE or Safari?
