Help something keeps redirecting my browser. I google something and it takes me to random pages. josmolina2 2/1/10 9:50 AM
I dont know if its a virus or just my browser, lately my mc afee picked up and artemis virus, but i quarantined it. What happens is, i type a url (eg facebook.com) and it takes me to random pages i never asked for, sometimes other search engines sometimes just wierd stuff.  (eg  seasamestreet.com, click.thedigitalyou.com , stupiddrunk.com phukitfun.com) stuff like that when all i wanted was to get on facebook, or look at a wiki artical.  any help would be greatly appreciated.

OS vista

Laptop  

Toshiba

Virus protection Mc afee

You have malware. Download, update, and run www.malwarebytes.org

josmolina2, you ran McAfee. McAfee does not pick up all the mailware that Malwarebytes pick up.

Did you update Malwarebytes with the latest definitions?

it caught something called artemis, i killed it and my browser worked fine for a while. but then it was acting up again.

Can you kill artemis again with McAfee or whatever you used before?

yeah its dead, but now i dont know if thats the problem. malaware bytes picked up more viruses, but that didnt fix it. google keeps sending me to random search engins. My friend just commented on my facebook telling me he has the exact same problem.

Use another browser, like mozilla. Or, copy the green part of the site (what the site's url is) and paste it manually. That's what i would do.
