I've followed the tips here - https/malwaretips.com/blogs/remove-browser-redirect-virus/ I downloaded all of the utilities mentioned and ran them. but none of them were able to find the infection.
But both Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome continue to have a redirect hijacker that is making it difficult for me to surf the web with all the redirects. I have no idea what program or other utility is causing the redirects. I hope someone can help me, otherwise I may well have to reinstall windows 10 just to fix it, because it seems to be buried deep.
I would reinstall windows regardless, anytime I see a system with a particular bad virus I would always just reformat the drive and reinstall windows unless for some reason I couldn't. What is it redirecting you to?
seems to be redirecting to performance-zone dot com and tradexchange dot com, among others. Should you say reinstalling is the best way to fix it even after telling you about what it is redirecting to, I am a gamer so will need to back up my game saves before doing so I hate restarting at the beginning of a game after making a lot of progress.
