issue on redirecting

  • hello,

    recently I had to reinstall the opera (43) due to system reinstall, and I got sort of issue related to redirect in opera, particularly I search in googl the term "how to add bookmarks to pdf", it open first and then it redirect to the page by the following link "http://search3.ozipcompression.com/search/web?fcoid=417&q=how+to+add+bookmarks+to+pdf" , how to fix this issue? I do not really want to reinstall opera ...

    Thanks

  • You have been hit with malware. You likely installed something less than legitimate and it piggybacked along with it. If you can, do a search for "remove ozipcompression" and follow the guides that pop up. I also recommend you scan your system with Malwarebytes and AdwCleaner for good measure. Where there is one, there is generally more.

    Just to be clear, this isn't an "Opera" problem. That malware affects basically every browser on the market because it is installed at the system level.

  • thanks for replay and recommended soft. yesterday i figured it out that its not opera, the reason I came here was that i do not use any other browser so i did not notice strange thing going on in other browsers. whatever, yesterday i cleaned some of, but looks there are still... i have to take some radical measure...

  • Try Combofix, at Bleepingcomputer.com

    You may use SystemExplorer or Autoruns too, and disable any strange startup entry.

    Sometimes the problem it's in the shortcut, so try open Opera from "Launcher.exe" in "Program files".
