Hello,

I've been having some Malware issues for about a week now, maybe a little longer. Each time, the attack is similar. I will get a fake warning or a fake scan will appear, and typically it will effect my computer in ways that make it difficult to remove. For example, I won't be able to download files, access the internet, open anti-virus programs, etc. The first time I had "Windows Disk", most recently "XP Anti-Spyware", and I can't seem to remember what the second was calling itself.

In each situation I was eventually able to download RKill, then download and run Malwarebytes. I also have McAfee, as well as Spybot Search & Destroy and Ad-Aware. I will run each of these programs after a malware attack, and typically each one will find something to clean up. I will assume my problems are gone, but since this is the third time I'm going to stop being so naive. Could someone please help?

Forgot to mention, when I google things I am automatically redirected. For example, I will google "amazon", click the first link, and I will be taken elsewhere.
