My computer has been infected with malware. It has blocked access to mrt (Microsoft malicious removal tool) spybot and any anti-malware website or program I try to use. Also it has blocked access to system restore. One problem that it causes is, anytime I click on a result after using a search engine. Instead of taking me to the website I desired it takes me to an ad of its own. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thanks for the help.

When you save a downloaded Malware program save it as a different name ......many bugs are cognizant you are trying to remove them and they have the names of common AV programs loaded so they block them. try change the name at download and then try run them....Good Luck.

Lifetweaker, I have informed the moderators of you post here.
One of them will move it to the Am I Infected? forum, where the malware removal experts will guide you through the clean up process.
Please do not post in the Hijack This forum yet. The HJT team is very busy and it may take a few days to get to your log.
Am I Infected? may be all you need and it doesn't take as long to get a response. Many infections can be cleared up without use of HJT.
If a Hijack This log is needed, you will be directed to that forum.
