Well, I believe my computer is infected. It was probably from an adult site and now I'm afraid it might be the last adult site I go on. I would say i will never go on to an adult website if my computer gets fixed, but hey i'm not going to lie to myself.

Anyways, so I originally had a problem where google was not working. It would redirect me to this website, alltoolsforyou. I have Malwarebyte's anti-malware installed. I then dowloaded AVG which I'm 99% sure is legit. When I ran that, my internet wouldn't even open. It wouldn't load using either Inernet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. I even used Ad-Aware by LavaSoft to get rid of anything, and the internet still doesn't work. I recieve an HTTP 404 error, stating that it was able to connect yet the website wouldn't load and that possible errors could be 'not typing website in correctly', which is completely false, since i went to well known websites like google and yahoo. the only reason i can access the internet now is because i switched my operating system over to Ubuntu Linux, which runs on a portable memory stick.

Hello.. If you think AVG is a suspect download you should remove that first,it may be loaded with malware.

Install ,update and scan with the free version of Antivir.

Rerun MBAM like this:

Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select FULL scan and scan.
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot into normal mode.
