Browser Hijack and Virus

Specs: Windows XP
I had a virus two days ago that would not allow me to access my computer. Whenever I turned it on, it would take me to a fake desktop with a "System Check" scanning my computer and asking for my credit card. I researched online and was able to do a System Restore Point back to March 5th. I thought this removed the virus because I was finally able to logged on to my computer and see my desktop. Unfortunately, ALL of my files and pictures had been deleted and a few of my programs also. I tried running Malware Bites but it couldn't find anything. Consequently, I did an online ETST scan which found a trojan virus. I also used avast which claimed to get rid of another virus. I then downloaded Spybot which removed both Trojan Viruses and adware/malware. I''ve also tried cleaning with CCleaner. I thought this would be the end of my problems but unfortunately I cannot use google or any other search service because when I click on a link it redirects me to an add or reloads the same google search. I have tried everything but have come up unsuccessful.
