Posted 29 October 2010 - 10:25 AM

I've never posted to a site like this before but I'm at my wits end. Usually i can do some research on Google and find a fix when something happens to my computer but this one has me stumped. I have noticed though that i am not the only one that this is happening to though. A few days ago I was searching for a subtitle file on google and on this day I got a pop up from one of those dreaded fake malware removal programs which automatically installed itself. I immediately used Perfect Uninstaller and uninstalled it and did scans with all my protection programs. Malwarebytes cleaned a few things and messed something up where I had to restore my PC to an earlier date. So after I restored my PC everything seemed fine but I started getting my search results redirected and tabs started opening by themselves. And then suddenly a "host" or something started crashing and the bottom part of Firefox and some of my windows explorer windows would grey out and look like it's in safe mode. I've tried the goored.exe fix ran Hijackthis.exe and have downloaded, but not installed, several of the programs that were suggested to others on this site but to no avail I'm still at a loss. Please help!
