I've been holding a virus at bay (I'm sure in a very lame way) for a while now (6 months) and I think the virus is starting to win. Yesterday I could not use Internet Explorer, when I did get on the net I was constantly redirected. In the past I've downloaded and used Spybot Searh and Destroy which I can no longer access. When attempting to download other Malware / Spyware / Antivirus software I've been redirected and unsuccessful. I have been running Ad Aware often and it keeps coming up with the same 2 Trojans which I remove (it will only quarintine) just to have them return when I boot up the next time. I have had Malwarebytes but have not been able to access it or update it for 6 months- until today. I updated and it, and when run, it found 15 or so problems. I re booted, ran it again and it found 173 problems. I'm sure that being able to gain access to Malewarebytes today has helped but I think there are still some deep and looming problems. Any ideas?

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.
