I noticed that I when i did a google search that when i clicked on the link it would redirect me all over the palce (except to the link I needed.) I tried to run Spybot S&D and it would not work.

I am unable to post any requested diagnostic information about the problem. I've tried running HiJackThis, MalwareBytes anti-malware, Spybot S&D, RootRepeal and dds.scr.

MalwareBytes, HiJackThis, Spybot S&D begins scan then closes and : Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." and you also cannot rename, or delete the file.

SuperAntispyware has run and Eset has run and found problems but has not fixed initial problem of google links redirecting

DDS.scr Black screen comes up and after and hour I just closed it, tried this three times.

dds.scr is able to be to be re-launched, and it brings up the black command window type screen, but never brings up the notepad windows. It seems unaffected by the termination behavior, and is able to be re-launched.

RootRepeal runs and begins to scan then the computer shuts down!

I was able to run SREng and have a log which is attached.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
