Hello members of Bleeping Computer,
I have been having troubles with the infamous Google Redirect Virus (as well as rootkit activity being detected) for about a week now. In the past, Combo-Fix was able to solve this problem. This time, however, Combo-Fix seems to have no effect on fixing the problem.
COMBO-FIX: Whenever i try to run Combo-Fix now, the following error message comes up:"Some files could not be created. Please close all applications, reboot Windows and restart this installation". I'm not sure if the virus is making that message pop up or if there really are other benign applications that are causing this message to show up.

DEFOGGER&DDS: I was able to successfully disable cd emulation, but as for the dds, the black box that pops up (right after you double click the dds desktop icon) didn't show any writing/progress. It just stayed black with a blinking cursor at the beginning.

GMER: Once the program for gmer finishes scanning my computer, I proceed to click save and then my computer crashes. As soon as I hit that button the screen freezes, and when i click on it again it says that the program isn't responding and that i could "end now" or "cancel".

As for internet explorer, I have to click on the IE icon several times for it to work.

I am also currently able to view this site via FireFox, since IE won't even work now. Whenever I open IE, it says "Cannot find server" on the top and for the page it does the "The page cannot be displayed" message.

Oh, and my computer just got the AV Security thing yesterday, and i tried to run the following steps for it, but when i try to open internet explorer it shows for a split second and then the window closes sad.gif
(i am able to view this site through another laptop)

Yeah the internet explorer is still not working in safemode with networking. it says the "Page cannot be displayed" thing.

Whenever i try to open any application it opens for a split second and then abruptly just closes. Files and folders are still accessible though.
