Want to get rid off from unexpected redirect

Get Rid of searchremagnified redirect

Dear all,

I have some website where I am facing a bad situation with one website. The website frequently redirecting to searchremagnified from my PC which is unexpected. The hosting is newly created and Avast antivirus installed on my local PC. Problem happening only with this website so far. Some times its works (with removing cookie, history, temp etc) and after that it again redirecting.

Is it my local problem or web server problem? How can I get rid off from this?

Please help.

Does this happen with all browsers or only one? An unexpected redirect can come from the site or from your browser so try to find out if it is only one browser first.

Thanks, First I am getting it on Firefox and then if I browse through chrome it also same, antivirus blocking it with redirect. I get some time working with clearing cookie,history and user profile,temp files all. But it was backing again.

Now I am getting some more persistent working result with scanning Malwarebytes (http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=53253.0)

Will it be a problem to retain both antivirus avast and Malwarebytes simultaneously as both are running now on system? It's shutting down unexpectedly with "Blue screen". After Malwarebytes installed it's happened two times. So I am thinking to remove Malwarebytes! Any suggestion?

Thank you

One reliable anti-virus product that is kept up to date should protect you from malware. Two is overkill and they can interfere with each other and with normal operation. It is possible that the site you are trying to visit has been hacked or files inserted unknown to the site owner/webmaster.

If you know how to check the headers to see the server responses you can find out exactly what is happening when you visit there - and probably the last line would show you what is triggering the Anti-virus response. There are a few Free Tools here at the Forums (link is up at the top of the page) that can help you to view headers. If you've never looked at that information before it can seem cryptic and confusing but often you can spot some activity that you can't see another way. You usually see the requests that your browser is sending to the server that hosts the site you are visiting, and then the server's response. It can let you view the name of every file that is included in your request.

Another alternative is to view source - again, only useful if you have an understanding of html so you know what you are looking at. Malware sometimes gets onto websites via Ad delivery in remote files called via javascript or flash widget - in which case you still won't see what is going wrong.

Ok, Thanks.

I removed malwarebytes. The site is opening too.

I own the website and purchased recently. I know html, php etc. can check header with live http header extension. Website don't have any js code, plain html theme with wordpress running and code is clean no iframe nothing. Have chacked with [virustotal.com...] and stopbadware.org too no problem or report.

PM'ed you website url. If you please check that. I will let you know if the problem happen again.

No problem shaid, I'm happy that the problem is gone. You can add your site to your profile so anyone who has the time to check it for you and wants to help can do that, but I don't do individual troubleshooting, sorry.

WebmasterWorld does offer site reviews for members in the Supporters Forum which is a paid area of the forum where members can get individual help from each other.

plain html theme with wordpress running

If it's wordpress it isn't "plain" html. Every page on the site is produced by an invisible-to-the-user php script. So you need to double-check the php if you can, and make sure there's nothing in it that doesn't belong. Only people with access to the site files can do this; visitors see only the end-result html.

Thanks for reply.
Yes, its wordpress running and theme is converted from html by myself where no js applied. html and few wordpress function to get data. Only plugin added wordpress seo by yoast.

Is there any history problem with the site can cause this issue? BTW, site is opening and no problem getting.
