I have some sort of virus affecting my computer. Any search engine I go to will display the results of the search but then redirect me somewhere else. I have read MANY of these forums to try and figure out the problem but can't. I suppose I need to start with a knowledgable person here at the beginning.

How should I start. I have tried a number of things including, tdsskliller, rootkill, combofix, malaware bytes etc. Nothing has worked. I have now deleted everything related to the issue from my computer for a fresh start.

PS Often when I am at bleeping computer searching for my problem, the web browser just disapears. It is if the virus knows that I am searching for it.

Hello, if you ran all those tools we need you to move to the Malware removal section.
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.

NOTE:post these also.
tdsskliller, rootkill
