Blekko Re-Direct Virus

2 posts in this topic

When is attempt a Google search, i am directed to a "new" search engine, named BLEKKO.


A new page pops up, showing the works " A new browser tab for Blekko"


When I attempt to create an email in Yahoo Mail, the following is automatically inserted in the text:

new browser tab

I have Kaspersky Pure, and have never run into any virus problems before. I'm running a new Kaspersky update and new scan at this moment.


Does Kaspersky Pure get rid of this virus? If not, what is a safe way to get rid of it? It's similar to the "Google redirect" but the virus on my PC has the Blekko insert in all my new emails.


I am a novice when it comes to viruses and such things.

Welcome. Enable Other threat category, instructions: > ok>ok, and do a scan.


After that, please uninstall any and all junk toolbars > reboot, and uninstall/disable any and all junk browser add-ons, then remove any and all junk search providers in your browsers, then change your home page.


If still no go after that, please see the first Important topic.
