First time here, so I'll just describe what's going on and you guys tell me what to do first. A couple of days earlier, I had that stupid Microsoft Security Essentials Alert malware popup. It was preceded by a sudden flurry of redirects on Google. Ran rkill and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and stopped it.

Everything seemed fine until this morning. Google seemed unaturally large in my window and I began experiencing redirects. Ran Hitman Pro 3.5 and it detected a possible TDL/Alureon thingie as well as another handful of cookies and malware. Rebooted. Still receiving redirects.

Please help.

My operating system is XP.

The enlarging of the google screen was due to it being mysteriously zoomed to 125% ><

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.
