First of all apologies for posting in the incorrect forum.

I am running Vista premium service pack 1 as two will not load. IE7 and McAfee security centre

My browser keeps and getting transferred to sites that i have not clicked on?
I did a OneCare safty scan and it said I was infected with OBFUSCATOR.ET and ER

I tried to load MalwareBytes bit it wouldn't load.

I eventually managed to get a scan log via a Ssr link on one of the help pages (thanks)

copy of scan log below, can anyone please help me with this problem?

Hello oakeyone,

Download Security Check by screen317 from here or here.
Save it to your Desktop.
Double click SecurityCheck.exe and follow the onscreen instructions inside of the black box.
A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt.
Please post the contents of that document.

I tried to load MalwareBytes bit it wouldn't load.

If MBAM will not install, please rename the installer mbam-setup.exe. Example: newtool.exe
Proceed installing the renamed installer of MBAM.

If MBAM will not run, go to the program directory of MBAM (e.g. C:\Program FIles\Malwarebytes Antimalware\) then rename mbam.exe to newtool.exe, double click newtool.exe to proceed in running a quick scan.

* Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
* If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
* Once the program has loaded, select "Perform Full Scan", then click Scan.
* The scan may take some time to finish,so please be patient.
* When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
* Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
* When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.(See Extra Note)
* The log is automatically saved by MBAM and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
* Copy&Paste the entire MBAM report (even if it does not find anything) in your next reply

Extra Note:
If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove,you will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts,click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process, if asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately.
