Im going to start at the beginning. I noticed about a day ago, that i was getting weird results when using Google, didn't really think anything of it, until i noticed that my Girlfriends
computer was acting the same way. Every 2/3 times i would click on one of my google results, it would open a new tab, and redirect me to some different web site. random one most of the time.
One of the more common ones i think was spyzilla or something like that. So i tried updating Malwerebytes, avg, Microsoft security essentials and running them in safe mode to see if i could find an
infection. i found multiple infections, on each scanner. well after about 5 hours of running all of them, and curring my system, and hers of all the infections, i logged back on to my computer.
The google redirect problem is still on both computers, worse on hers. so, i tried all the scanners again, and founds some threats, got rid of them, and still the same problem. i also found out my room-mate
has the same issue with google. also, before i forget to mention, After Playing a game last night, Windows media center would open. This worries me.
We all have a wireless connection to the neighbors router. and this problem just started about 2 days ago.
any help at all would be great, but please ONLY PEOPLE WHO ARE WILLING TO WALK ME THROUGH EVER STEP OF THE PROCESS. i spent way to long on this, and i would really like some intelligent feed back.
PLEASE BE VERY DESCRIPTIVE, i have been tinkering with computers ever since i was 14, and this is actually the first time i was no able to solve my problem in one day...
