I am attempting to remove a very extensive virus/malware on my in-laws computer. I do not know the name of the malware but it's affect is as such: whenever going on to the internet (IE ver. 8.0.6001.18702) no matter what web address I type in I am redirected to another, not always the same, website. I have tried running thier Trend Micro Anti-virus but nothing is found, it is out of date by about a week because the malware will not let me update. I have also tried to run malwarebytes but the program never opens. It also will not let me install any other anti-malware programs.
I have run combofix on my own comupter which had pretty much the same problem and it fixed it. However I did not know I should have done it on my own, thankfully it did not harm anything.
Can you help guide me as to what I should do next?
The OS is Windows XP ME ver. 2002 SP3
