Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium
This is a brand new desktop from best buy. eMachines with Windows 7 Home Premium, all i have done so far is download Firefox 3.6 and Aim. I have bought a legitimate copy of AVG Internet Security 9.0 from the website. It seems that everytime my computer would restart or start from a shutdown my firefox google search bar and the regular site would redirect me to some spam website. some how my google search bar would change into a different google logo but the url says "" and has a google layout. of course i dont click on anything and i still get trojans or tracking cookies warnings from avg. i dont know what to do, i have system restored this computer 3 times in the span of a week and a half and it seems to be the same problem over and over again.

Step 1. A) It will show you errors saying that filename.exe is not a valid WIn32 application.
B) If you download and try to install a new program, It may tell you that setup files are corrupted and you need to download a fresh copy. It will keep bugging you again and again.
C) It will infect Internet Explorer, Firefox and then redirect you to malicious websites showing advertisements and pop ups.
Step 2. It is extremely important that you remove Google Redirect virus as soon as possible To remove Google Redirect Virus, you need to follow these steps :
Please click on "Start-->Run". Type "devmgmt.msc" and Click on OK. This will run Device Manager. In Device Manager, click on "View-->Show Hidden Devices".
