Hitman Pro

Is your browser search redirecting, do you think you have the "Google Redirect Virus" or does your search continually go to advert pages instead of the page you were looking for. If it does then your browser is hijacked at the root.


Hitman Pro and the editing of the HOSTS file will remove for free the redirecting virus for you and works alongside other malware removal tools that may miss it.


Follow the steps below to check for and fix the virus

  • Navigate to C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
  • Right click the file hosts and make sure if you are using XP that you un-check read only or if you are using Vista or Windows 7 then you run as administrator
  • Now open the file with Notepad or Worpad
  • Delete all the lines of IP addresses in the text document except for " localhost"
  • Now select save and agree to overwrite the file
  • Now download and run free Hitman Pro
  • Your browser should now stop re-directing
  • I also suggest you use update to a more secure browser try Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer 9
