Fixing Google Redirection/hijacking and other redirection problems
There are quite a few different infections that can cause search engine redirections. We will try to cover several of the most frequent cases in this procedure.
Note Vista and Windows 7 users:
Now let's flush the Java Cache
Now let's flush the FireFox Cache
Step 2 - DNS Poisoning/Hijacking
These types of infection have been known to infect router hardware. If you have a router ( the router could also be part of your cable or DSL modem ) hooked up then you need to follow the instructions for your hardware and reset it to factory default settings. Normally there is a recessed push button type switch that needs to be held down for some number of seconds to do this. After resetting to factory defaults on your router, you will need to reconfigure the router for your network if you have made any changes to the default network setup.
After doing the above power down your DSL or Cable modem and also your router. Wait a minute and then power them back up.
Now check to see if your problem has been resolved. If not, continue on with the next sections.
