Bascially my Mcafee Security Center won't update it just say's error and tells me to reinstall it.
But i can't access the Mcafee website to reinstall (can't acces this site either)
I am also getting google searches being redirected on both IE and firefox
I thinkit might be Antivirus2009 but all the advice for removing it doesn't work
I've tried scanning using Mcafee, SuperAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes
Mcafee brings up nothing the other two brought up Trojans the first time i scanned but nothing since then despite the problem persisting.
I had this problem before
to solve it i uninstalled mcafee but then couldn't download it again i finally found software to remove it but can't find it this time.
Desperatly need help PLS

Download this file and save it to your desktop:


Double-click the file to run it. A command window will open briefly. Then run a quick scan with Malwarebytes. Post the Malwarebytes log.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
