I hope you guys can help me fix this as I can't find any information on google and forgive me for not being too computer literate. Basically a couple of days ago I suddenly got attacked by a lot of spyware and trojans I think. I had the security suite pop ups and protect your pc pop ups constantly annoying me but luckily there was quite a lot of information on google and through booting up in safe mode, running rkill and super anti spyware and Malware bytes anti malware programs I managed to get rid of it. I then installed Microsoft Security Essentials for virus protection. However it seems not everything was fixed as google searches would redirect me to weird gambling sites but again I fixed this with the help of another little program I found on google. Anyway after all this was done it seemed finally my computer was clean and so far it seems to be, but everytime I turn on my computer and every so often I get a little box that comes up and says "Onex has stopped working" and "Microsoft will notify you if a solution can be found". After a bit of google searching I realised Onex is a .dll file but I don't know how to repair/fix it if this is what I need to do. Whilst it doesn't seem to be affecting anything I do and everything works fine, it is a tad annoying and I would appreciate any help in getting rid of this problem.

Many thanks.

Oh and I'm using Vista 32 bit.

Thank you for that I will try it out now. Also, my google problem seems to be back. I thought it was fixed but google search results are still redirecting to weird sites.

You may be infected...it seems that many users who don't think so...actually are, in spite of their efforts to clean the system.

I will move this to Am I Infected for a closer look by those more knowledgeable :thumbsup:.
