Re: [Trojan] Google redirect then more all pc's on Uverse networ

You may be dealing with a combination of issues and I'm no sure they are all malware related. Some may be hardware related but there is no way to tell currently.

A high number of svchost.exe in the Task Manager is not unusual for Windows 7. I have seen over ten on my computer. Not all are necessarily using the internet.

Your best option is to reformat and re-install. Do a full reformat, not the 'quickee' version. Make sure you backup all your data first.

A fresh start will give you a reference point to eliminate, or include, hardware as a possible source.

Let me know your choice. If you decide against reformatting, we need to cleanup regardless of the next step.
