google search redirecting virus

Specs: Windows XP
Please help!
I've had this virus on my computer for over a week now.

Basically, 75% of the time, google links I click on redirect to a different site. Also, sometimes I get this popup box and several minutes after I close it, my computer changes into a Windows 95 format for a few minutes, (the toolbar is all flat looking, just looks like an old windows)

I've run Malwarebytes and its clean!
I don't know what else to do! Please help!

So I actually got rid of the virus... (I HOPE!) last night.
I went to this site, and got directions. First I downloaded a program.. forgot the name. And then when I restarted, my computer was even WORSE than before.

I had the 'antivirus soft' virus, and it wouldn't let me run anything. Then I used combofix, but I couldn't disable avast in safemode, so I had to remove it. Then after I ran combofix, I then ran Malwarebytes again, and it found 4 infected files.
I removed them..

Now windows is doing an automatic updates.. hopefully I'm clean!

Hope this helped anyone who has this virus as well! Now I have to download avast again.. lol.
