I encountered this previously and removed it successfully. I ended up having to reformat my drive due to a very bad batch of driver updates that went wrong. I got everything reinstalled but before I could get my virus and firewall with MacaFee installed I figured out I had an infection while searching google for updates. It redirects me to various ad pages, blocks malware removal tools use and installation and or download. I attempted the fix I used with Combofix and event hat is blocked by it. Here are my logs from a variety of programs I was advised to include with a help post. If any additional info is needed let me know.

Day Late and dollar short my system crashed and froze so badly while I was waiting that I had to reformat the whole thing and reinstall all of the device drivers to run literally everything. From what I have been reading about this little problem is really a big one and some are thinking its stemming from using google who knows. But my issue is now resolved whichever way you put it.
