On September 2, 2010, my computer blocked several virus after my son was trying to download and article. I am running AVG and Malewarebytes both in real time protection. After seeing AVG blocking these viruses, I ran a full scan with malewarebytes and it detected 36 infected objects. I deleted those items through malewarebytes, but now my internent keeps redirecting me to unwanted sites. I used sdkill and I can go to the wanted sites, but as soon as I restart the computer, I keep getting redirected to unwanted sites. Each time I can run sdkill and I'm fine, but I want to fix this problem for good. I downloaded combofix and saved it to desktop, but I have not ran it yet. looking for help before I do so. Once I get instructed to run combofix, I will deactivate AVG and malewarebytes realtime mode.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

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.
