I've been infected with the Protection System virus. Computer runs slower than normal. My google searches get redirected to www.searchwebonline.org. Obviouly, I get a ton of Protection System fake popups asking me to register and that it has found various worms/viruses, etc.

Please let me know what steps to take to get rid of this thing. I have downloaded OTL.exe and run the scan based on a previous post but the removal was not successful. Not sure but I guess the removal of malware/spyware is specific to each pc?

Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated!
