Need help from a programmer/computer geek
One of my laptops is infected with the fucking Google redirect virus, and I also want to get rid of the two search engines I didn't realize were being installed, ( the damn "funmoods" bullshit, and the Babylon search engine). Is there a good product out there to get rid of crap ? I've tried a number of the published ways to get rid of the redirect thing, so I know it's beyond me. I'm just sick of this crap.

Step 1) Reformat your hard drive.
Step 2) Install Ubuntu.

RE: Need help from a programmer/computer geek
Can't you just uninstall them yourself (the engines, I mean)?

Also, try malwarebytes for cleaning unwanted stuff (I think it doesn't catch the google redirect virus, though). There are a couple more ways and also some good ideas on the Internet, if you can't wait until the major comes back Wink

Usually only after we've dosed. We get to experience the full range of testosterone, from germanyt on a roid rage to a little girl crying because there’s no ice cream, teddy bears and balloons in her dreams. It really is quite fascinating.
