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 188.8.131.52, 184.108.40.206 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.
