Yesterday I used Malwarebytes to remove the Windows Security Centre 2010 scareware. It seemed to work and I thought my problems were over.

Using Google today, when I do a search and click on a result, Firefox is being redirected to a different site. I downloaded ComboFix.exe, but, as instructed, will not use it unless advised and guided by a helper from this forum.

Can you please help me?

Many thanks.
