I have a Google redirect virus that I cannot get rid of. Can a tech help me and supervise a removal? I have everything downloaded and ready to use but will need your expert assistance.

Many thanks,
Matt

Sorry, I should have included more information. I am running Windows XP. The problem is that for certain Google searches I will click on a site and it will redirect me to another url that is not the one listed in the search. The very first time this happened I downloaded several other viruses when I clicked on that redirected site. I have cleaned most everything off, mostly using PC Spyware Doctor, but the Google Redirect virus still remains. Several scans do not detect the virus itself and other tutorials and methods have failed to remove it.

I have downloaded De-fogger, DDS, Rootkit Unhooker and ComboFix but have not run anything until I receive further instructions from someone who can help oversee the removal.
