Current situation is that google searches are redirected to random search sites. Entering the address directly works fine. I also had a problem where all my files were 'hidden' by the malware, which I manually undid and also removed malware (detail logs in the link above) from the computer. Some other internet functions seem to be buggy as well, for example trying to connect to Team Fortress 2 games the server details comes up as 'cannot connect' even though the game connections work just fine. Unsure what to do next to try to finish cleaning off any issues created on the computer. Much thanks for any help.
