Hello, I recently got a trojan after downloading and trying google chrome. This may be because I(unwittingly) downloaded a new version of java for chrome. Soon after, I started getting popups so I immediately started scanning with AVG9 (free). It detected several trojans(Vundo.KG etc) which I deleted. The popups persisted however so I restored my system to an earlier point but I think the malware had already saved itself into that as well.

I downloaded Malwarebytes, SUPER Antispyware, Avira Antivirus, and Avast but all of them failed to work.

SUPER fails to start.
Malwarebytes will install but then it says its missing MBAM.exe(the malware must've deleted it)
Avira and Avast fail at the end of install

Then, the malware installed a program called "your pc protector" onto my computer which popped up every couple of seconds. I found the program file and deleted it so that stopped, but it started to redirect my google seaches(engine called searchclick8...). I dont know what to do at this point.

Please help. Thank you.
