I am running windows 7 64 bit edition, and run the AVG antivirus. Whatever infection I have does not come up with an AVG scan, nor a Malwarebytes scan. However AVG randomly pops up saying various.exe's are infected; healing them does nothing, and they are legitimate .exe's (I assume their being hijacked). Also my google searches are redirected, my proxy settings in both firefox and IE are changed to localhost 127.0.0.1; If i change it to no proxy settings I do not get redirected, but later the setting is changed back to proxy.

Where should I start so hopefully you guys can help me clear this up?

Unfortunately the current average wait time is 11 days.

To avoid confusion I will close this topic.
