ihavenet.com browser redirect

Hello,

My browsers (IE9 and Firefox15) are constantly redirected to ihavenet.com - I was using MSE but it stopped working around the same time I started having the reidrect issue. Neither MS Safety Scanner, Malwarebytes, Comodo or Spybot SD can detect anything present. MSE wouldn't switch on regradless of how many times I unisntalled and reinstalled it which is why I finally didn't bother reinstalling it. I used Appremover to uninstall MSE which is an MS recommended program.

Any suggestions?

Cheers
John

You should not attempt to install MSE on an infected computer or a computer that's already running an antimalware program such as Comodo.

 

MSE was probably disabled by whatever malware installed the browser redirect.

 

Try these “free” on demand scanners which will not interfere with your resident AV program -  you might need to run them in Safe Mode or Safe Mode With Networking:

 

 

And/or

Try Hitman Pro Trial Version: http://www.surfright.nl/en/hitmanpro   This program may be run from a flash drive.  Hitman Pro has a good track record against browser redirects.

And/or

Try TDSS Killer:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-tdss-tdl3-alureon-rootkit-using-tdsskiller  TDSS Killer may be run from a flash drive.

 

OR

 

You may need to use one or more of the following offline scanners - you'll need to burn a CD using a different computer and change the boot sequence on your computer to run the scan - instructions are included with the links:
