I'm sure you all have dealt with this exact situation before, however I have been dealing with the Google redirect virus for a few weeks now. It has since escalated into me receiving the BSOD.

I am using Windows 7 Ultimate OS 64-Bit. I only use Mozilla Firefox as a web browser. I use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware since contracting the Google redirect virus and have since downloaded Avast as well.

Not sure if useful, but I have tried using a restore point--it was not successful. I have also checked my hosts file for any oddities under localhost. I have not found any. I can run my computer in Safe Mode with Networking seemingly without a problem. (Or at least I say until I randomly receive BSOD.)

Also: Malwarebytes consistently finds Trojans at C:\Windows\scvhost.exe

As a precursor, I am surface level savvy with computers, so I apologize for any issues that might arise from my lack of understanding. Having said that, any help would be greatly appreciated.
