Security Guard 2012 (a nasty bugger) installed itself on my XP PRO PC. After getting advice, I was told to run a tool called combofix. This worked are restored my computer to a working status again.

I was then able to run Malewarebytes for the first time and it found several infections and removed them.
I ran HiJackThis and removed some stuff (as a friend pointed out what to remove)
I then did a virus scan with AVG and it found a few things and removed them.
I then did another after rebooting and nothing was found, same with MBAM.

But...for some reason I still have the following issues:

1. Malewarebytes pops up with messages all the time saying "successfully blocked access to a potentially malicious website: **various IP addresses follow*** such as, etc...
2. I cant really click on any google search results without being redirected to various scam sites...

Please Help me BleepingComputer!!
-Thanks for your time

P.S. I have the logs ready if you want me to post them...just let me know.

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 have.

Let me know if that went well.
