I received the security tool virus while randomly browsing the internet ago. Upon infection, I followed the removal instructions at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-remo...e-security-tool. The virus seemed to be removed successfully, however I now have a browser hijacker. Whenever searching google and clicking on a link my browser is typically redirected to a faux antivirus site. This usually occurs successively three times and on the fourth time my browser directs me to the correct link. The redirect seems to occur more often when I'm clicking on links dealing with security/virus removal. I also get random pop-ups of the website survey and local-news-online.com periodically. I observe no other effects other than browser redirection, that I am aware of. I received this virus while using Internet Explorer and since have changed to using Firefox. I have also updated my computer security from Symantec Anti-Virus and Windows default firewall to Avast!, COMODO Firewall, and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. I have run scans with MBAM, SuperAntiSpyware and Spybot, all were unable to fix the problem.
