Last week I was infected with the KoobFace Virus after clicking a malicious link in Facebook. My Avast virus security program picked it up and removed a portion of it. I believe another portion of the virus was removed by Malwarebytes. A Malwarebytes scan now shows a clean machine. However, I am still being redirected to random sites when clicking on a link in a google search result. Also, google maps is not working properly.

My Avast program is up for renewal, but when I try to go to their website IE times-out. I am also unable to go to other virus security websites. Maybe due to the virus?

You guys were a tremendous help to me earlier in the year when I had a problem with another machine. I hope you can help me out with the problem as well. Thanks in advance!
