So, I've tried every route I can think of..without journeying down the combofix route because of some scary posts about destroying my entire machine. About a month ago, my computer somehow inherited this nasty bug with a continuous pop-up of a fake anti-spyware program and continously re-directed me to ad site and weird search engines every time I did a google search. After installing Malware Byte's and a few other programs it finally stopped continuously popping up. However, I still redirects my first few search results on google. The redirection is inconsistence, but my computers performance is also terribly slow. Start-up takes a a while, and I'm concerned about it. Any help would be great thanks.
I also still have these various anti-spyware, anti-malware programs on my computer - which is very reasonably another cause of the slowness, but I'm afraid to delete anything in the idea of making it worse.
