I got the trouble of TrustIn in my computer, and went through hell with my NortonAntiVirus and Ad-aware to get rid of its million little pieces, and STILL it infects my computer through the search engines and such. My search engine results turn into long-as-hell "click_v3" results which take me to shady sites.

I tried following the self-help guide on this site, but as I had gone through much of the removal process myself, it proved to be pretty useless aside from the fix reg item and the Panda scan, but now it appears Panda wants me to buy its bleep before disinfecting my comp. And I sure as hell am NOT forking over 30 dollars for ANOTHER anti-virus program which I'm already skeptical about to begin with. Does it disinfect it for free or at least show me the files so I can delete them or am I being suckered in to their corporate scam of having me buy their bleep?

EDIT: I already have a full suscription to Norton Internet Security and Norton Anti-Virus, and I'm sure this program will try to make me uninstall if I did buy it, and I do not trust it, nor am willing to get rid of my Norton programs

Panda online will automatically remove viruses free of charge. Just be sure to turn off your Norton Real protection while it's scanning, then turn it on again when it's finished. Panda online free will NOT clean spyware, though it will find them. Consider the program as a second opinion: no one security program is 100% fool-proof.

I'd suggest you follow the instructions tg1911 has written in the post I have quoted below. If you have any pre-HJT questions, please add them to this post. Please do not bump your post, as the HJT team may conclude that you are receiving help. If you have not heard a response in five days please add a post to haven't heard in five days topic and include the link to your HJT topic in that post.

I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.
A member of the HijackThis Team will walk you through, step by step, how to disinfect your computer.

Once you post your log, don't make any changes to your system, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it more difficult to properly clean your system.

Read Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully!!!

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, as these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.


Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.

I went through scans by Panda, Spybot, Stinger, Norton, etc, and whatever they found, I deleted, and STILL the problem persists.

This morning, I installed IE 7 since I discovered this problem doesn't affect Mozilla Firefox, only to discover it persists in IE7 as well. Then my Norton suddenly detected a Trojan in my System32 and deleted it, and now I can use my address bar again (I had had a problem where most of the websites in my address bar would redirect me to shady sights like bestcasinoz.com and such) but my google results are still replaced with bleep like: http://207.226.164.171/click_v3.php?data=M...TklMkZBJTNEJTNE

Okay, you've run through all the security scans in the HJT preparation guide. The purpose of this is to get rid of as much of the infection as possible. Now, follow the instructions in the guide for downloading and installing HiJack This and creating an HJT log, and post your log, along with what you've already tried to do and the results, in the HJT forum. tg1911's instructions that I pasted in my first response provides all the directions you need to do this. The HJT team will walk you step-by-step to get your computer disinfected.
