    Hi:

    Lately I got strange experience; everytime I use google.com (either in the address bar or through the toolbar search facilities) my browse always redirect me to baidu.com - the chinese SE.

    I delete the registry key, use internet secuirty and lately also use registry editor. There was registry of baidu - but then it is cleaned now. However, my browse still redirect google.com to baidu.com (I can still go to google.co.id)

    I already changed my time zone not to match any Chinese cities. Also my ISP is using FO, not vsat to hongkong.

    I am trying to find the answer through the net, but now helpless.

    Please, if there is someone know how to work on this, please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Joe, Indonesia

    Your hosta file has been modified by a browser hijacker.

    Install a free anti malware such as A-Squared and run a scan.

    If you dont have an AV installed - download Avira free version and run a scan.

    Hope this helps - let me know.

    Hi guys .......Redirect virus can hijack your computer and perform malicious task into it. It may replace search results with spam content and displaying ads and pop-ups on every webpage you visit.
