My daughters computer has a goodle redirect virus which is also stopping several spyware programs running. I've run ATF-Cleaner & CCleaner. I had Superantispyware installed but it stopped working and I cannot reinstall it or remove 3 of the DLL files. I have Avast installed and it removed some files but now finds nothing else. I have Combofix & Malwarebytes but neither of them will install. I tried renaming Malwarebytes and it installs to the end of the installation bar and then freezes. When I try to run it nothing happens. I also have no internet connection on that computer now, I've tried 3 different network (wireless) cards and none of them work. I ran Fixwareout and doubleclicked the dmsbak.reg file but it still won't connect to the network. I have run Fixwareout and Hijackthis and can post the logs on request.

Try to download, install and run Malwarebytes and Hijack This by these instructions.

Please download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from one of these sites:

Please download and install the latest version of HijackThis v2.0.2:
