So I have the TDDS redirect virus on my Windows 7 64-bit laptop. I have ran an extensive cocktail of antivirus tools such as combofix, malwarebytes, superantispyware TDSSKiller, GMer and Antivir. In fact, every time I restart the computer Avira says it found the TDDS.s virus but it never really removes it.

I started deleting folders and registry keys that had names of virus makers (probably shouldn't have done that) and even reinstalled FireFox. I checked my hosts file (which is ok) and it still redirects- only now it doesn't land on some spam page, i redirects 2 or 3 times and takes me back to the search results. This is consistent in Explorer as well.

I have been working on this since last night and have exhausted my resources. I simply do not know what to do.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the post and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get.
