I contracted Privacy Protection from Demoniod (perhaps from inadvertently clicking ad.)
To complicate matters, I have some kind of infrequent Google redirect problem which I have lived with for a while. I believe I have correctly followed all steps in tutorial on Privacy Protection removal, running rkill in safe mode and TDSSKiller from Kasperky, then Malwarebytes, which detected nothing.
Spybot tea timer and win defender turned off before operation.
The Privacy Protection is evading detection in safe or normal mode and preventing connection in normal mode.
I am running Vista on 32 bit desktop.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

update after posting, I ran through same debug as above, with same no infections found results. Avira free version false found no infection. But when I restarted pc and tried using firefox for grins, it worked fine! No evidence of Privacy Protection bs. Not sure how it was removed or if it is still lurking but so for so good. Thanks for you efforts and I will ice this thread until further problems arise.
