I have a problem with a redirect virus

Specs: Windows XP
Hi all

Everytime I try to do a search through Google or Bing my search is redirected to a site called Gomeo. I couldnt open up my anti-virus so I restored my system however this did not get rid of the problem and instead left me with further problems i.e. programs not working properly etc.

I have ran my Microsoft Security Essentials anti-virus and this did not find anything. I then ran Antimalwarebytes and this located 7 items which i removed. However the problem was still there so i downloaded Superantispyware and this located over 140 tracking cookies and 40 trojans/spyware. I removed all the viruses and yet i still have the same problem.

I cannot download to my laptop and really dont know what to do. I also downloaded HijackThis but am not to sure what the results mean and don't want to delete anything until I know if it is right thing to do. Can someone help me please.

Try trojan remover and hitman pro. Run them untill they are clean and then uninstall them in all programs...NOT in add/remove

You are welcome,
click start/all programs and uninstall it there.
Be sure to run the hitman pro also, to be sure all is gone.

Avast free is my choice, been using it for 10 yrs now and I find it much better than AVG, Avira, Microsoft Security Essentials or the other free ones. Much better protection and I install it on all the repairs I do for clients.
Spyware Blaster is also a good thing to use, just need the free version.
