I know my computer was infected through one of two links....1). Yahoo messenger via Yahoo mailbox, or a link for "Google work from home". I lost complete control of my search ability always being re-directed to unwanted sites, and most of these sites cause my security to flash warnings of malware. I originally found 7-8 Trojan infections in files and registry using MalwareBytes. I continued to have no control with searches, and my FireFox browser opens tabs redirecting to unwanted sites. I downloaded more anti-malware programs and eventually it appeared I had got all the infections out, but the re-directing problem persists. I have used MalwareBytes, SpyBot S&D, SuperAntiSpyware, Spyware Terminator, CCleaner, Kaspersky, and even GMER (which locked up my system and had to do a cold shutdown). I now only turn up tracking cookies and Adware, but no apparent serious infections...yet the redirecting problem persists. I have no control with searches using any search engine such as Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc, or any browser (Firefox or IE). I get occasional "WIN32 Needs to close" warning, and then most things will not function without re-booting. I also get a "Registry Error" error window that takes over and minimizes the window and says I need to download their registry cleaner. Please advise. Thank you.
