Windows 7: Microsoft Security Essentials / Redirect virus! HELP!

My understanding of things now is all suggested scan were run and no infections were found. Is that correct?
If it is correct I recommend removing all anti any thing program except MSE and MBAM and then check if you can update them and run both of them them.
I would like to have more precise answers if you could.
I haven't solved it yet apparently.. Help? x)
Does this mean you still can't start MSE and Windows 7 firewall at this time?
Two more suggestions.
Restore point before you had this problem could help now. Go back about 3 restore points in time.

Emm.. Sorry for that.
I didn't notice that you had answered the post.
(I really don't know why I bumped.. D; )
Wait a sec, and I will report back with my findings! ^^

Edit: There really isn't anything more to add to the answer Layback, it just didn't come up with any viruses (The Offline Defender thingy).
And the Malaware did come up with some infected files, and I removed them.
The TDSS software didn't come up with anything eather. ( But I did run it once for a few days ago, and it found some files, and I removed them as well ^^

I apperantly don't have a restore point?
It says that I can't because it couldn't detect any restore points, or something like that D;

Are you still being re-directed? Or, is it a matter of MSE not running?

Hi Jacce. Thanks for dropping by.
Speluncus MSE should turn off Windows 7 built in Defender.
Knowing what infections were removed would help.
Please answer Jacce's questions, it would help us help you.

I am actually not having any re-directs atm. So I think the virus is killed/removed.
I am not sure what infections got removed, I am sorry to say that I usually don't pay attention to that.
But again, the re-directing virus is gone. It might re-occur, but I will be sure to report back to you if it ever does ^^
