Nine days ago, February 20, started acting very sluggish, links to other parts of the Google website 404, and links in the search results always redirect me to After some research it's very clear that this is a fake Google homepage and that I'm infected with a redirect virus. I tried to take it upon myself to fix it but I have failed in doing so. I uninstalled Java and reinstalled the latest version and restarted, I downloaded and ran MalwareBytes, which removed some suspicious files and restarted, and finally I downloaded and ran Combo Fix and restarted. None of them worked, so here I am.

Also, I know very little about system32 registry but I looked in C:>Windows>System32>drivers>etc and inside I don't have a "hosts" folder, but a "hostz" folder and some other files that I'm unfamiliar with. Don't know if that means anything.
