When I was first given the computer it was running a fake Windows Recovery application.

[edit] all files on the HD had been switched to hidden. IE was generating script debug errors. Basically, it's the same thing half the forum is reporting.

As of this morning, I was left with Google redirects (in IE and Firefox) and once one of these links is clicked, explorer starts to browse websites using affiliate links in a hidden window.

After preparing these logs, the redirect seems to have stopped. I'm not sure if I still have a problem or not. Was GMER capable of cleaning something?

I resolved this on my own. I didn't realize there was going to be such a delay in getting assistance.
