Hi I have been infected with a few things, I believe. First off, Every once in a while, a program called Antispyware Soft appears. It tells me i'm infected and need to download software to remove certain threats. I thought i was able to remove it, but it once again reappeared after a few days. I also have a google redirect virus. Any search result i click on from google will take me to a results5.google site. I don't know if these two are related or not. I think one, or both, have something to do with the Mirar program which i cannot remove from my computer. I have AVG Free and Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes did remove some threats on the last scan, but i am still encountering the redirect virus and mirar is still there. While the antispyware soft isnt currently running, i'm sure its still on my computer.

This was good.. Now we'll run these hopefully er have it now.
Please read and follow all these instructions very carefully.
  • Please download GooredFix and save it to your Desktop.
  • Double-click GooredFix.exe to run it.
  • A log will open, please post the contents of that log in your next reply (it can also be found on your desktop, called Goored.txt).

ESET Online scan...
Please perform a scan with Eset Online Antiivirus Scanner.
(Requires Internet Explorer to work. If given the option, choose "Quarantine" instead of delete.)
Vista users need to run Internet Explorer as Administrator. Right-click on the IE icon in the Start Menu or Quick Launch Bar on the Taskbar and select Run as Administrator from the context menu.
  • Click the green ESET Online Scanner button.
  • Read the End User License Agreement and check the box: YES, I accept the Terms of Use.
  • Click on the Start button next to it.
  • You may receive an alert on the address bar that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then click Insall ActiveX component.
  • A new window will appear asking "Do you want to install this software?"".
  • Answer Yes to download and install the ActiveX controls that allows the scan to run.
  • Click Start.
  • Check Remove found threats and Scan potentially unwanted applications.
  • Click Scan to start. (please be patient as the scan could take some time to complete)
  • If offered the option to get information or buy software. Just close the window.
  • When the scan has finished, a log.txt file will be created and automatically saved in the C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Online Scanner\log.txt
    folder.
  • Click Posted Image > Run..., then copy and paste this command into the open box: C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt
  • The scan results will open in Notepad. Copy and paste the contents of log.txt in your next reply.
Note: Some online scanners will detect existing anti-virus software and refuse to cooperate. You may have to disable the real-time protection components of your existing anti-virus and try running the scan again. If you do this, remember to turn them back on after you are finished.

I was reading online that this google redirect virus could be coming from the router. I use an open, public router could this be the problem?
