Help!

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.

Download this file and save it to your desktop:

http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.scr

Double-click the file to run it. A command window will open briefly. Then run a quick scan with Malwarebytes. Post the Malwarebytes log.

I tried everything and finally got rid of it with ComboFix. I actually have had this twice and ComboFix got it both times.
