Hello and thank you in advance for your time/help.

For the past couple of days I have been having issues with Google and other search engines redirecting my searches to other web sites.
My system runs fine off and online speed wise. All programs still accessible.
I also kept receiving an allow access notification for a program "MSIEXEC.EXE'' that even if I clicked Alt F4 would just immediately pop up again until I hit Allow.
After being forced to click Allow I would then get a notification from AVG having found Malware.
The pop up was like that for the prior 2 days but hasn't started today, yet (knock on wood).

Frustrating :angry:.....

Hackers did a real good job on hiding this one too; I've looked for hours upon hours for this one.
This must be what it feels like for my parents when they can't work their computer :P...

Any help would be greatly appreciative.
Thanks again
