Hi, thanks a lot for helping me with this.
I noticed the virus attack after I installed League of Legends. I didn't even play the game before AVG started picking up virus after virus. I cleaned those up, and it seemed that it was done, but then when i tried searching for something in Google and would click on multiple results, something started happening. The first few i would click would load fine, but then as i clicked more a 400 Forbidden page started coming up with a url which states 400 Forbidden. And this happens to pretty much all results after that first one.
I scanned with Komodo Antivirus, and it picked up quite a few more viruses, and I scanned with Malware Bytes which also picked up some viruses. Yet, the redirect is still happening. I don't know what to do. Every time i think it's gone, and it doesn't show up for a while, it suddenly starts doing it again.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
