Re: update.microsoft.com goes to google english

What does this mean?
"malwarebytes.org does not work or http://www.superantispyware.com/"

You mean you cannot download the applications, install them, run them, etc?
or
You mean they find nothing whjen you do the above?

If the former - yeah - you need to get them on another computr and install
them using a CD/DVD/USB drive - something on the obviously infested computer
(or take it to someone you trust that can do that.)

Also check your HOSTS file - maybe even delete it.

Re: update.microsoft.com goes to google english

I ment when i go to those sites i get this page (im useing opera browser)
You tried to access the address http://www.superantispyware.com/, which is
currently unavailable. Please make sure that the Web address (URL) is
correctly spelled and punctuated, then try reloading the page.
Make sure your Internet connection is active and check whether other
applications that rely on the same connection are working.

even when i ping it it has 208.116.53.98 and i got to that IP and it says
'IT WORKS!' (Site pinged: malewarebytes.org)

Re: update.microsoft.com goes to google english

Thus why I added to my advice that you are likely going to have to download
the install files for the two applications on another computer, save them to
CD/DVD/USB Drive, etc - and then transport them that wayt to the infested
computer to install/run. Whatever you have gotten infested with is blocking
your ability to even get the packages that *might* help you cleanup.

You are likely infested - you need to cleanup - but the variant you have is
sophisticated enough to block you from places that might help you do so.

Re: update.microsoft.com goes to google english

As the previous posts indicate its caused because of a HijackWare. They have already taken all the popular spyware and malware detection and removal sites into account and wont let you go to them. So we have to try with a lesser known sitethat does the job.
Ideally you will not be able to update your virus definitions and, adware and malware sites too will not respond.
So plz download the ' trjsetup675.exe ' file ( which the ppl who wrote this
stupid hijackware program missed to include!!) from ( its a trialware free of
cost but only for 15 or 30 days but we need it only once!!) and run the
microsoft online malware removal tool from
http://www.microsoft.com/security/ma...e/default.mspx in parallel.
This is gonna take a really loong time to complete but its worth it. During
the healing process the trojan remover is straight forward, it does its work
and asks u to restart. However the microsoft tool takes a loonger time and is
still running. So wait till it finishes and then do the restart as Both the
programs running in parallel needs to complete. This will do the trick i
suppose.
