My Computer Has Google Redirect Virus And Winlogon.exe Error

Very easy to follow. Thank you in advance. Hi, so when I try to save the HOST file I edit, it saves it as a different type of file. Keep reading the following paragraphs. http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/338430/my-computer-has-google-redirect-virus-and-winlogonexe-error/
solved it straight away... Is there any solutions for it/ May 10, 2010 at 10:30 PM gaztruman said... Click here to Register a free account now!
Don't forget to update it before scanning. More information in this Wikipedia article. I backup the system files and everything the first day of owning this laptop so the full recovery should not be of too much headache. I had tried everything to get rid of this virus.
Which ever one did it I am now able to click links on my browser and not get redirected and am able to look up in Google. So, I used Hitmanpro and it worked like a champ! I believe it hijacks the browser on the way into google and fakes being there, when in reality, it is somewhere else already.- Jim March 4, 2010 at 8:30 PM Anonymous http://newwikipost.org/topic/tkuRtQoHQQft82LidASP1VqUN7kADY6u/Google-Redirects-and-34-Explorer-exe-and-maybe-winlogon-exe-is-infected-34.html August 4, 2010 at 11:07 PM Anonymous said...

No more mis-directs!!!!!!Thank you so much!!!!!! - this site is awesome! Maybe I should just reinstall the OS..? Thanks a lot!
Counter what "Jim" said above, I get redirected from Google or Yahoo on IE or Firefox -- all the same.
I am not using a router - I am plugged directly into the cable modem. This apparently was the infection on my machine.Also, Symantec has FixTDSS.exe tool. I immediately ran a McAfee scan and Malwarebytes scan and removed several infected files. THANK YOU TDSSKiller!You saved me from having to do a full windows restore on my computer!
