I have managed to download a redirect virus that I can not seem to get rid of. I am using XP pro, and IE8. After doing a search if I click on a link it "sometimes" will redirect me. If I back up I can usually reclick and go to correct site. I have run all the usual, Malwarebtyes, avg, symantec, CCleaner. When I run combofix it comepletes step 50 then crashed the computer, which comes back up with a critcal recovery error wanting me to report it to MS. I have Run highjackthis and have the log. Tell where to go from here and i will post whatever you need.
