I had a infection that Malwarebytes discovered and deleted but after that my browser started redirecting Google searches. This happens with both IE8 and Chrome browsers. I've looked at the forums and tried to see if I could fix this on my own but it looks like I probably need to have someone guide me through the process. Any help would be appreciated.

Finally got my answer which fixed my browser redirects over at SpyBot Search and Destroy. Got tired of waiting for a response here and at Malwarebytes forum so started working some more on my own. My iaStor.sys file was infected which I knew by running combofix and then uploading the file to Virus Total. http://www.virustotal.com/ By following Blade81's directions it's all clean now. Just remember this was for someone elses computer so it may not work for you. I took the risk and it worked for me. The last comment of the thread says that combofix was crashing but it didn't crash when I ran it on mine.

Here's the link if you're interested. http://forums.spybot.info/showthread.php?t=53562

Again, remember that it's best to get help from an expert for your particular computer but if you get tired of waiting like I did and have a little knowledge about computers then go for it. You do take the risk of having to reinstall your OS.

Glad you got your problem fixed. I've "restrained" my redirect virus but it's still there and I'm worried about security. I took some steps on my own but I'm hoping someone sees and responds to my thread soon.
