Solution to IE8/Google redirect problem
My Google search results were sending me to different webpages. I searched
numerous forums for solutions. I used Spybot, Malwarebytes, HiJackThis, and
other suggestions, with no success. Finally, I downloaded the free version
of HitmanPro 3.5. HP3.5 identified atapi.sys as "Rootkit". Deleted and
redirect problem went away. I hope this works for you!

Re: Solution to IE8/Google redirect problem
Hi,

Have you rebooted since you Deleted and redirect problem went away?

Rootkit infections usually aren't that easy to remove. Even a nuke and pave
is not enough.

Web search for rootkit infections

You should also ask yourself "How did I get infected in the first place?"...
free software is seldom value for money.. is it? nor can it.

Regards.
