Yesterday, my computer got a virus that has hijacked my browser and redirects it to random sites no matter what I
click on and it also blocks Malwarebytes from running. I changed the Malwarebytes file name and was able to open it up and run a scan. There were a few bad items found but the problem with the browser hijacking still persists and I still cant open MB from the system tray ar the start menu. I downloaded AVG and it found a few malicious items but didnt fix the problem. I am not very good with this tech stuff but I need to get this fixed. Any ideas?
Thank you very much,

Try this:

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
