I'm trying to get rid of some obvious malware on my friend's computer. As the topic says, he is having Google, Yahoo, etc. search redirects. There are most likely some other problems as Malwarebytes, HijackThis!, and DDS will close upon starting a scan (even in safe mode.) Where should I go from here?

Thanks for your help!

Hello RedPenumbra :thumbsup:

See if this will run:

Download GMER's application from here:

Unzip it and start the GMER.exe
Click the Rootkit tab and click the Scan button.

Once done, click the Copy button.
