My work computer has the google redirect virus I believe. When I clicked on links in google search results, I was directed to random sypyware? sites. Now, I cannot browse at all as all web traffic is directed to 127.0.0.1. I did run malwarebytes, but it did not find any infected files. What do I do next?

I would like to thank this forum in advance for any help I receive. It's so great to have places on the net like this.

Thank you,
Dave

Before you start doing things on your own, have you consulted your work's IT department?

Please update mbam and select FULL Scan
Run the scan, Remove selected and reboot
Post the log for review

Combofix removed nfr.sys and smss.exe. I did not know I shouldn't have run this without consulting people first at the time. All websites still redirect to 127.0.0.1.

Here is my mbam log:

From what I can tell combofix has removed the malware/virus. I've fixed the problem internet browsing problem as well. In the Combofix log file I found a reference to a proxy server=localhost:7070. I unchecked proxy server in internet connection settings and I'm working. The virus must change this setting to enable the redirection of the websites. Thanx for this great forum, I wouldn't have been able to fix this problem without it.
