Hi all,

my problem started 4 days ago with an Anti-spyware Doctor pop-up. After that, Symantec AV11 reported (fake?) security issues as well as that Doctor programme and I got Google redirections. One step further my computer stopped and after restarting I got "unable to start explorer.exe" messages.

Used F8 inder Win7 and it started up again. Chose an old recover point and all seemed to work ok for a short time. Again, redirections and security messages occured.

Tried everything: scan with Malware bytes, Ad-aware, Skybot, AVG9, Kaspersky TDSS after using Rkill, Hitman 3.5, ATF cleaner.
Now, after many hours, I'm out of options.
There were some files cleaned but status now is still being redirected in Google. Read that ComboFix doesn't work on Win7 and that you should not use it being a newbie.

Please help!
