Search Engine Links Redirect!
Hi, I'm using a computer that is around 3 years old and it is run on windows xp. Recently when AVG Anti Virus Protection stopped their free memberships I ran my computer for atleast a month and a half without any protection what-so-ever.

I woke up one day and my screen saver had changed to like some thing saying your computer is infected with spyware go on this site and buy this to remove it. Also a fake anti-virus/spyware was installed called anti-virus xp 2008 or something and said I had like 2800 Viruses lol! I'm pretty good on computers (but I'm no profesional) and I worked out how to delete it. I also found a apparently very good Internet Security Suite that is run by F-Secure and is called Optus Internet Security Suite 2008 (Scans, Firewall, Virus/Spyware/Malware...) anywayz it got rid of a heap of viruses prob around 200 and around 100 spyware. So I assumed my computer was all safe again...

I worked out my computer definetely isn't in a safe state a few days ago when whenever i tryed to open a link on google it would re-direct me! I tryed to go on technical support sites but they wouldn't work so ATM im restricted to a proxy server. Also Blue error screens (BSOD) come up after the computer hasnt been in use for around 10mins. Fortunately i worked out these were fake after a bit of study... Anywayz enough chatter lol i just want you to help me get rid of the last stage of my computers infection!

I've read one other persons issue that is very closely related to mine and i followed the tech dude's instructions even though they weren't aimed at me and i downloaded MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and scanned and got rid of a few things and all my problems went away and then came back like 10 mins later lol... I also downloaded Hijackthis and i'v also done a scan on that. So here i'll send them in a sec lol... just realised this comp wont let me attatch... FRIGGEN SPYWARE AND VIRUSES
