Most of the computers are suffering from go.google.com redirects virus which redirects the user browser while browsing to some fake sites which contains adsense ads.
go.google.com further redirects the google search results to corrupt adsense web sites and also stops user from downloading files from the Internet. When user clicks on download links go.google.com displays the following fake errors below:
- Internet explorer cannot open web page
- filename.exe is not a valid win 32 application
- Setup files are corrupted. Please obtain new copy of program
There are now some malware removal tools dedicated to remove this virus. However in this tutorial, I am going to teach you how to remove it manually.
To do this,
Go to Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices.
Scroll down to “Non-plug and Play Drivers” and click the plus icon to open those drivers.
Then search for “TDSSserv.sys”
In simple terms, TDSSserv.sys is a service/server redirecting all software updates to 127.0.0.1 (your own computer) so they won’t update.
Right click on it, and select “Disable”
Note: If you Uninstall, it will install itself again when you reboot the system, so don’t select Uninstall.
Restart your pc.
You can now update your Antirus/Malware/Rootkit softwares and the go.google rubbish will stop.
