You might have more than one nasty on there and I'm insufficiently expert to deal with a complex security issue over a forum. However, it seems you might have one of those rogue Anti-Malware things on board, so while you are waiting look here:

You will see that another machine is required to remove this beast. If you follow the given procedure "exactly" it should rid you of the bogus AV problem (if any).

After that, if you are still in trouble it is a matter of hoping that a specialist will drop by who can deal with multiple infections.


What's the time?

I appreciate your help but I have been to that site before tryed to get back there several time and it will not let me get in as it will not let me do a Microsoft windows update or go to any page that will help me ..I was surprize I got into here...I read some other post people were have simular problems but couldn't do any of it either ..I do have the malwarebytes program I got a awhile ago back from bleepingcomputer and have ran that with the rkill thingy and disconnected my antivirus program and my stopzilla when I did it ..I have removed stuff with it before and also after it stopped hanging on me..I also removed things with the stopzilla so I have done many scans..I use to have the avg and microsoft security essentials until my husband talked me into going with aol's programs which is McAfee and I wish I didn't because I had used them for years and never ran into this ..Maybe it has nothing to do with it ,,but anywayzzz..
My browser just keeps redirecting and can't get any microsoft pages or any pages of things that i don't have yet. I wanted to try that combofix but couldn't get into get it either to download it ..had the older setup of avg but wouldn't let me update it.,,I again would get redirected everytine i would go for something..And I do not have another computer which I wish I did but My daughter took it out of state with her..So I am at a loss what to do

Just a quick update for the forum following some PM's between the poster and myself.

One of the major issues was that the machine was refusing to download Security programs, AV's etc. I sewed the seed that maybe these could be emailed via a friend.

The upshot is that a 30 day trial of a program called "Hitman" (new one on me) was emailed and run. This apparently fixed all the problems, so well done RazzMaTaz.

Thank you Derek for being a friend and being there to talk to when I was so frustrated..It helped tremendously..Your idea to have things sent to me via e-mail worked and all my reading of what to tell my sister to send to me..To me you are a friend for life so many thousands and thousand of miles apart.
