I use a windows XP computer and Firefox as my main browser.

Two weeks ago i got infected by a nasty virus. Called my dad's friend who is a computer tech, according to him he fixed it. Once again, got infected by virus. Although to be honest I think it was the same virus there, I dont think he cleaned it out correctly. I called the tech again and he came, cleaned it out and I thought everything was fine.
Its been two days since. First night i got online, i noticed google has been redirecting me to different sites.
I ran Spybot search & destroy and Norton and it detected nothing.
However, I was still skeptical so i downloaded Malwarebytes and it found a few trojans and a couple of other things.. So obviously the computer wasnt all cleaned out like the tech had told me. (Im also wondering why Spybot and Norton didnt detect anything?)
(I just turned my pc on once again and am running another scan with Malwarebytes at the moment to check if its still detecting something)

Im a safe internet user..I dont download programs, I dont click on bad links/emails.. Im wondering why I keep getting infected and why I cant fully clean out my computer of these nasty things *sigh*

Im about ready to give up. I called the tech again and he's supposed to come again in a week but I really rather fix it myself instead of having to pay again..Im a student and I really cant afford it =|

If anyone could help me find out what is wrong with my computer/what kinda virus I have and how to fix it, i'd gladly appreciate it! Im seriously about ready to give up
