Hi guys,

I am new to this forum and was recommended to post here. Anyways, I have been infected with what I believe is called a google redirecting virus. I've tried using Spybot and Malawarebytes, no luck. I am also having issues removing a Privitize VPN toolbar even after uninstalling. I'm really concerned about my personal information I use on the computer, so I would like to remove this ASAP.
