Was infected a couple days ago with some type malware. Already ran Malwarebytes and McAfee. Malwarbytes took out a list of stuff. Now Firefox won't run at all. IE redirects when on google search, have to use cache to get to where I want.

Thanks Budapest!

I ran tdsskiller and it found a couple of problems. It cleaned them and then I rebooted. Ran Malwarebytes, it found 1 problem also and cleaned it. Rebooted, now both browsers are running at normal speed and good now.
