Took me hours to get rid of Google redirect. And I still wonder what else that nasty piece of work might have done...

kyhwana2: After cleaning this off, make sure you install Secunia PSI and have your users run the updates!

This is fantastic advice. It's especially good for bringing a neglected machine up to speed. It checks your Flash/Shockwave/Java, and almost every application you can think of - Acrobat, Firefox...I think mine even detected an update for Notepad++


I ran a scan with it and it detected some out of date programs, however it recommended downloading versions that when I checked the programs website were also out of date... doesn't seem that useful if the DB is not going to be up to date.
