About a week ago I began having problems with my search results being redirected to ad sites. Now I can't even connect to the Internet on my Laptop. It will connect to the local network, which is connected to the internet, but it will not connect to the internet.

As of now, Malwarebytes does not help, nor do spybot search and destroy or Ad-aware. I don't know what exactly is wrong, but I'm pretty sure I have a virus.
Help please?

Let's try these.
Are you running SpyBot's Teatimer aplication. It may block all repairs.
Try this--open control, internet options, connections tab, lan settings, uncheck the box next to "use proxy...."
Go to Start ... Run and type in cmd
A dos Window will appear.
Type in the dos window: netsh winsock reset
Click on the enter key.

Rerun MBAM (MalwareBytes) like this:

Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select Quick scan and scan (normal mode).
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot into normal mode.
