|Xp, thanks for the reply.|
I tried the "rkill" rootkit, which found and "killed" one program (i can dig up the log if you like)...
Then, ran the TDSSkiller, which found nothing...
While I was running the malwarebytes scan (again), Microsoft Security Essentials popped up with a series of warnings ("1 potential threat found on your computer, please click to remove," for example)--I suspended the malwarebytes search, went into Essentials, and had the threats removed successfully (however, there were a few more "threat warnings" from Essentials before it finally stopped altogether). I completed the malwarebytes scan, which found nothing.
Unfortunately, the redirect is still active, disabling me from following links on google...oddly, SOME links work, but it seems the majority redirect on me.
So, what do you think?
