I initially had a google redirect malware and Win 7 Home Security 2012.
I followed the instructions found at link to remove the Win 7 security.
Afterwards I noticed on mcafee that my firewall was disabled and I was not able to turn it back on.
When I tried to turn on the windows firewall I received the following error:
Error Code 0x80070424

I saw other posts on Bleepingcomputer.com where they seem to be having the same exact problem and followed the instructions there but the firewall issue still remains and I still get some random pages that pop up at times.
Here are the links to the similar issue:

I have run rkill, TDSSKiller, Superantisypware, MalwareBytes, and GMER.
Thanks in advance.

Hey, I was having the same issue, found this post on here, imported the reg keys and it worked for me. Recent infection messed me up, used mbam, emsisoft, combofix, trend housecall and sas, to clean pc. Avast didn't stop it from getting in, so I might be switching my antivirus. Good Luck


-check windows defender, the infection corrupted it also.
