Hello, I accidentally ran a program before scanning it and seem to have infected myself with a Google redirect virus. Whenever I try to search via google,I get redirected to all sorts of websites. For example if I search "tech" and go to techcrunch(dot)com, I instead get redirected to localdouble(dot)com .

I see you've got a lot of threads on this virus already, and I looked through them and tried what I could (excluding ComboFix). So far I've run MBAM, Spybot, TDSSkiller, Sophos Anti-rootkit, and probably a handful of others that I don't recall. I caught some stuff with spybot and tdsskiller, but it's all been cleaned now (problems persist unaffected).

Sadly nothing seems to work and I've run out of ideas, any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hello having run ComboFix we need to see that and a DDS log.

Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9 which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
Skip the GMER step and instead post the ComboFix log you posted earlier.

Let me know if that went well.
