2 days ago our home laptop was infected with the the windows 7 repair virus. This was accompanied by hidden files and search engine redirect. I've run SuperAnti Spyware, Malwarebytes,and ESET scans which each came up with trojans which were removed. The windows 7 repair seems to be gone and we were able to restore the files but the search engine redirect continues on both internet explorer and google chrome. I have run multiple scans with TDSSkiller after scans with malwarebytes and ESET but it doesn't find any infected files. I saw that there is a new trojan, popureb.e, that is difficult for antispyware to find. Does this cause search engine redirect? Is there anything else I can do besides reinstalling windows? Our operating system is Windows 7.

Can you post the logs from Malwarebytes, SAS, and TDSSKiller?
