One of the latest and most annoying issues with every day computer users is outlined below. I hate to see a person have to bring their personal computer “in store” and have it tied up for days.

The cost is usually assessed in general terms meaning a person may have an issue that is a quick fix but they get charged for a full virus repair.

Ever since the invention of the internet, several viruses have continued to be released by unscrupulous programmers. Today, there are thousands of viruses on the internet. Your system can easily be attacked as you visit dangerous websites. Redirect Virus is indeed one of the most deadly malware programs that are becoming very notorious on the internet.

It’s also referred to as Google Redirect Virus. This is because it can easily redirect the original Google web address when you conduct searches with the Google search engine. Nevertheless, the virus still attacks other popular search engines like Yahoo and Bing. That’s why it’s also known as “Search Engine Redirect Virus”.

Actually, the Redirect Virus has an origin. It was created to mimic the famous UNIX operating system which was introduced in 1990. UNIX is a wonderful operating system that can be used to fix issues on the computer. Few months after its creation, some group of hackers manipulated it by creating the Redirect Virus. The virus was designed to work like the UNIX operating system. You can easily be confused with the operating system when you take a look at the virus program.

One dangerous aspect of the Redirect Virus is that it can remain hidden from any anti-virus program you have in your system. Your anti-virus will never detect it by any means.

You may still use it to search for a topic and also get the usual Google results. However, the story changes once you click any of the result items. The virus redirects you to malicious websites once you click any item on the result page. Normally, scamming and hackers use the virus to redirect your searches when you use Google and other search engines. They usually generate free traffic in the process.

Meanwhile, the Redirect Virus can easily attack your
computer when you download files from the internet. You can easily get it if you’re the type that downloads free music, free programs and other free stuffs.
