I then scanned with avg for viruses but I had no luck, so I installed Avast 5 then uninstalled AVG.
Avast found 7 Infected files then I deleted them and was told to restart, so I did and everything was as normal.
But then Windows was asking to update so I did but 3 security updates failed(Those 3 updates were the only ones there).
So I tried going to the update center but this message popped up"Connection closed by remote server" Image below.
While I was trying to find out why Windows Update was not working random pop-ups opened every so often. Some of the websites tried to download Viruses on opening but others were just scams. Avast stopped the viruses from downloading immediately. I then ran a boot scan with Avast and found 3 Infected Files(Deleted).
Then more pop-ups opened more frequently and many websites on Google.com were redirected to the same websites as the pop-ups. I was then told to get Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, this program found 5 infected files(Deleted).
I don't get any virus warnings but I still cannot access updates and I still get pop-ups(No Google.com Redirecting).
Another problem is with shortcuts, they simply don't work. I click on any shortcut and nothing happens. and when I install programs there is a folder in the start menu but not links inside.
I have found a suspicious program running in the Task manager "ifCG0Vq5.exe" Keeps opening randomly
Unable to Hibernate the computer.
I can post a HiJack This report and more images if needed. Thanks in advance
