I have the exact same problem as someone else here, and he was able to get his computer cleaned, so I'll post his description, which is exactly what I am experiencing.

I ignored Java updates and ended up with InternetSecurity2010 rogue program. It initially presented with a multiple array of popups warning of infections. I was using AVG at the time of the infection and up to date. I've since downloaded and scanned with RKill.com, MalwareBytes Anti Malware, Spyware Dr.

The scans find issues, quarantine, and remove them but problems are still there after reboots. The issues have been the popups of scareware, hijacked Task Manager, hijacked Administrator account, inability to run System Restore, redirects of browser links, inability to boot in Safe Mode, ad nauseum.

Some of the consistent elements are the InternetSecurity2010, redirects to Local-News-Online.com, thewebsitesurvey.com, findstuff.com, directdr.com, theclickcheck.com,, thewebantivirus.com, mdlinx,com. clickseekonline.com, etc etc etc.

Thanks for any help!
