I started having these issues a couple weeks ago and have since been trying every virus/trojan/malware scanner I could find. though there was a few trojans and adware found and removed, I'm still having the same issues. It seems to effect my internet browsers. When I try to click on links through any search engine most of the time nothing happens. other times, it redirects me to some random website. I'm only able to go to websites by manually entering the website URL or using a bookmark. The other main issue is that sometimes I will not be able to open firefox. I try clicking the desktop shortcut and it spins for a sec then nothing. It just refuses to open. I do notice that there are multiple firefox processes in task manager. ( a new one stacks every time i try to open firefox). Worse yet, sometimes this even happens with ALL my exe's. I'm not able to run any programs, it just sits there.
I'm at a complete loss. I came across a website that had info on combofix, but i read the info on it and it said not to use it unless instructed... Maybe this is an issue only combofix can resolve?
Any help would be greatly appreciated as it seems my only other option is a reformat.
*Edit* I am using windows 7 professional 64 bit.
