My problems started a few days ago when i noticed a fake anti spyware scanner called security tool. I booted into safe mode and used malwarebytes, spybot and norton to remove it. It was very persistent, so i downloaded lots of anti spyware programs like adaware, spysweeper and so on. Finally i used a tool called security master AV removal tool to kill virus processes before scanning with norton. At that point it found alot of virusses/spyware and removed it succesfully.

Since then i noticed that my internet is slow and when i click on a google result it loads very very slow. Sometimes it gives a nginx error. Sometimes when i click on a result i get a different website.

I don't know what software can help me now at this point. So i searched for this problem with google and found this forum. I hope someone can help me fix this.

Thanks in advance.


edit : My norton endpoint security gave a warning today : http redirect detected. It blocked this redirect and i did a full scan yesterday. I seems it can't find the virus or spyware that's causing this.
