I clicked on a popup 3 days ago and downloaded windows xp repair virus to my computer. I did a system restore to 2 days earlier and ran symantec and stopzilla. since then whenever I go to google - it misdirects me from the link when I click on any of the search results (though I can open the linked site in a new tab when I right-click). I have since tried
Malwarebytes,the Microsoft security program, and Avast. Avast says that I have a rootkit in C:windows/system32/drivers/volsnap.sys but does not seem to be able to remove it. The problem persists and it is taking up a lot of my time and I am worried that my computer is compromised and my internet interactions (email) may be insecure. I would be grateful for any advice.
