I recently was using my computer, when randomly I started getting google redirects. Next time I turned on my computer I had a cloud protection window popping up, and every few minutes different security warning windows popping up. I have malware bytes and rkill already on the computer but everytime i run malware bytes it closes after just a few seconds. I understand that this also uses rootkits so I downloaded tdskiller which literally didn't do anytihng it only scanned 270 items and found nothing. I then downloaded sophos anti rootkit which seems to find the infected files but says clean up not recommended for this file. If anyone could provide any help on how to get this off my computer it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Also I'm running windows 7 home premium if that matters.
