Okay. so about a month back i had the google redirect virus but successfully removed it. now a bunch of yahoo and google searches redirect to random sites such as toseekA or other shopping sites. However, when I just click back and reclick the link everything works. I am not able to run a hijackthis or a malwarebytes anti malware scanner for some reason. and i can't delete the program hijack this and install a new one. the best i've done is run spyware doctor and it found some stuff including Trojan.DNS_Changer and i removed everything but the problem still exists. Please help.

If mbam won't install or run

Some types of malware will disable MBAM and other security tools. If MBAM will not install, try renaming it. Right-click on the mbam-setup.exe file and change the .exe extension to .bat, .com, .pif, or .scr and then double-click on it to run.

If after installation, MBAM will not run, open the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder in Program Files, right-click on mbam.exe and change the .exe as noted above. Then double-click on it to run.

Update the database through the program's interface (preferable method). Then perform a Quick Scan in normal mode and check all items found for removal. Don't forgot to reboot afterwards. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. When done, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply for garmanma's review.
