Okay, so after preforming countless scans, with multiple anti-virus/malware/spyware/rootkit software, and posting GMER/DDS logs in logs section ( http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic383299.html ).

I tried to reboot my computer using only basic services and devices. I previously took screen shots of the services and devices that were active before hand, so I could activeate them one at a time, when I restarted. So thats what I did, and my 'Microsoft antimalware' service seemed to be working now, and everything was fine, as long as I didn't restart my computer. I then went to turn System restore on, because for some reason I had it turned off, but I got error code (0x80070032).
Which means the task scheduler service is not started. (basically all needed services have been started at this point excluding 'task scheduler') When I turned the service to automatic and started it, Microsoft security essentials crashed, and my google links started to redirect again. After starting it, I am unable to stop the service, or disable it. As shown in the screen shot.

I'm pretty sure this is the source of the problem I have been having, any recommendations?

Weird task found in task scheduler, that causes the google redirects, and closes microsoft antimalware programs, and services.

Name: Dthubqqyg
Author: owner
User account: SYSTEM
Run with highest privileges
Configure for: Windows Server 2003, Windows Xp, or Windows 2000
Trigger:At startup
Action: Start a program
Action details: C:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe "C:\Windows\system32\WMSPDMOEG.dll",lpno

I've managed to turn off this task, and everything works fine again.

Sorry, Just realized that I posted this in the wrong forum section. Meant to post in, 'Am I infected? What do I do?'.

Now that your log is properly posted, and has a reply, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the logs you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.
