I check my installed programs, and there is Yontoo, installed about a month ago, but I did not install it.
So I uninstalled Yontoo. But now I still have the same problem with gmail, only the URL window refers to "plus.google.com...", and I get a "Loading..." message on the screen, but nothing ever loads that I can tell.
Gmail works fine through Internet Explorer on this machine. I also have no problems getting to gmail on my laptop (IE 9), or through my Droid.
So the problem is limited to this machine, and through Firefox.
Anyone else have similar issues, and how did you solve it?
Man, I wish I could help.
I didn’t even know what it was.
Looked it up and there are hundreds of web sites, basically saying “help”.
Because we are a Mac family, we do not run into these sorts of things often.
I wish you luck, it doesn’t seem like something easily fixed.
However, there are really smart and informed people on FR who I am confident can help you.
Check for pagerage toolbar, remove it. You may have to reload your addons also
i recommend malwarebytes anti malware (mbam)
Just checked, and “PageRage” is a Facebook tool. When using Google and/or Facebook products, well, you kinda deserve what you get.
See if you can find out when you installed (intentionally or not) this “PageRage” crap, and restore your system to a previous restore point.
Otherwise, I got nothing for you.
Symantec is usually the best advice I find. Here’s symantec’s Yontoo page:
I have recently discovered that I have one, or a few, redirect viruses. The first I found was “18.104.22.168”, then a beeq, and I’m thinkin I still have problems that I haven’t found yet.
I’ve run malwarebytes, AVG, and I’m about to run McAffee.
I don’t see the 22.214.171.124 anymore, altho I’m not sure I got rid of it. Malwarebytes took care of that. I ran AVG and it found a number of viruses, all in Java files, so got rid of those.
Not sure if I have other problems. I’m gonna run McAffee and see what happens with that, and then google for a while and see if I get redirected again.
I’m not a computer dude so this is really starting to suck.
P.S. THere is an ADD ON for Firefox called NO REDIRECT. Depending on whether your problem is a redirect or a b.h.o. (which is redundant), that ADDON program may be of value to you as well, and good to have no matter what.
