Specs: Windows XP
through an antivirus scam program called "antivirus soft" that has since been removed i now have the google redirect virus. besides the googling issue, it has changed the theme of my desktop and has not allowed me to access the web. i was able to fix the internet problem but not the redirect problem nor desktop theme problem.

any assistance would be appreciated.

to remove antivirus soft, i rolled back to a system restore point and deleted these files and registry entries:

Windows XP:

%UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\<random>\
%UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\<random>\<random>sysguard.exe
%UserProfile%\Local Settings\Application Data\<random>\<random>sftav.exe

Associated Antivirus Soft Windows Registry Information:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run "<random>"
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run "<random>"
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Attachments "SaveZoneInformation" = "1"
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings "ProxyServer" = "http="
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Associations "LowRiskFileTypes" = ".exe"
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download "RunInvalidSignatures" = "1"
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings "ProxyOverride" = ""

i've done the hijackthis scan. here are the results:
