I'm on the phone with my bf. We printed
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/malware-re...-antivirus-2009
from my computer.

When he types in the above link, the link is by-passed and jumps to unrelated sites. (ie. He can't get to malware site...redirects to some humor site)

This happens when he tries to download or access anything with spyware type info.

Looking for the next step.
Any ideas greatly appreciated :thumbsup:

If you cannot use the Internet or download any programs from your machine, you are going to need access to another computer (family member, friend, etc) with an Internet connection. Save mbam-setup.exe to a flash (usb, pen, thumb, jump) drive or CD, transfer it to the infected machine, then install and run the program. If you cannot transfer or install from the infected machine, try running the setup (installation) file directly from the flash drive or CD so it will install on the hard drive.
