Unable to access any website that uses apache server?

Recommended Posts

I don't use Apache, I'm just a web surfer. For the last three weeks, any website I try to go to, that uses apache either gives me this:"Forbidden  You don't have permission to access / on this server.
Apache/1.3.33 Server at xx.xxx.xxx.xx (my IP) Port 80" or I get a redirect to www.greatcasinoworld.com. I have yet to find any other help, using google concerning this problem. I looked at the Apache Server FAQ and about the only thing I could find suggested that I had been banned? I have run numerous virus checkers in safe mode. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Considering that you are getting redirected to a casino website, I would imagine your machine has been infected with something. Have you tried running software that scans for other malicious programs other than viruses? For example, spyware and malware.

Sounds like you have a browser hijacker. Try running one or both of these:

Adaware:

Spybot S&D:

Thanks for all your inputs. They are most appreciated. I am still having the same problem. This is what I've done: I have run ad-aware, True sword, spybot, avast,ewido,hijack this, and smit fraud fix in normal as well as Safe Mode. I did find some malware. But, even after removing them the problem didn't change. I also deleted the cache, cookies, etc in Firefox and IE. I am goping to try the Hijack This forum and see what I can come up with. I will report back what I find.

I fixed it! I went back into safe mode and ran Hijack This. I deleted the browser redirects, ran Smit Fraud Fix and it is good to go. Thank you for all your inputs and ideas. They really helped!
