First I had a problem with redirections from google searches.
Then I had one of those virus scare malwares called SecurityCenter
Then I had some kind of adware that would attach a porn ad on my desktop

First I tried to run MalwarBytes (I had downloaded it several months ago and it succesfully removed a malware) but my computer froze several times and would never finish the scan.
Then I downloaded Stopzilla thinking it was free but did not purchase or run it.
Then the porn ad and the SecurityCenter disappeared.
Then I removed both the MalwarBytes and the Stopzilla from my program files.

The ad and the SecurityCenter never returned.
The constant redirects seems to be worse.

I followed the directions for saving the DDS and Attach on my desktop. I ran the RootRepeal and saved the results on my desktop. Let me know when you would like run Combofix.

Did my downloading Stopzilla actually remove the viruses...seems fishy to me?

Thanks for you help.
