You will see the experts processes/approaches. Plus, you will become familiar with the terms/approacehs/processes that will be advised, which will make you more confident when it is time for you to proceed.
As MBAM is having a hard time you have a significant issue. And, it may require the root kit tools recommended by the forum experts,, i.e, new tools for you to learn.
That said, it can be resolved with patience.
In the meantime, as you have MBAM, you may try to run it in safe mode (as updated as you can get it) and see if you cannot peel back some layers.
Yes, MBAM works best in normal mode, but all of these problems are like layers on an onion so try to peel them back.
I have had the same redirect problem and they can be prickly. So, again patience is utmost.
Please, search the forums for "search engine redirects" and get familiar with the expert advice and one will come along soon with specific instructions similar to what you have read up on.
