Okay, well,
Ive had problems with Hijackers before making my computer always redirect,and i used Malwarebytes,that worked good.
Then,I downloaded SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard because I kept having hijackers,it was keeping me from getting a hijacker wonderfully,then I had to uninstall Spyware Blaster and Guard for three days..no matter how careful I was to go on trusted sites; so I'm assuming it was ads on sites i got it from? Ive also had AVG this whole time,doing regular scans.

Okay,so I got yet another dang hijacker (or so i think that's what it is?) :thumbsup:

So.. I tried.
AVG scan.
Malwarebytes scan.
Spybot S&D.
There was another..I forgot the name. but it had a little bug icon in the task tray..SUPERAntiSpyware ?

Spybot, Got some viruses and removed them,but the redirecting still occurs. (also: Spybot makes my computer crash every time it scans,before it's even done..even in Safemode.)

So,please..really really need help.
I read on a thread on here about Combofix? but it's suggested not to be used unless with a Helper. which i do not have.
Would that be the way to go? and where do I get a helper?
