Scan with your AV, or malware scanner, as you are infected.

I have had google redirects and the only thing that worked was combofix. Just dl it and save it to your desktop. Very important to save it there. Then rename it to something else like "fixer" because some programs won't allow it to run if it sees the name combofix. Then run it. It's a really strange program. Just follow the instructions to the tee. It will have to dl Microsoft Windows Recovery if you don't already have it, just say yes and then agree. Then when it runs your desktop icons will disappear at some point while it's running. That's normal, I didn't think it was originally I was glad I didn't reboot. Eventually it will finish and display a log.

When you finish up, when you reboot it will show the Windows Recovery icon. If you want to stop that, you can go to msconfig and click on Boot.ini. It should show a line that says Microsoft Windows Recovery Console. Just go down a couple ilnes and check the line that shows your operating system and click on set as default.

I ran AVG and anti-malware and still had the issue. I just ran combofix. What do I do now?
