Disable Spybot and TeaTimer (it will try to interfere with the cleaning) ....

Download TDSSKiller and save it to your Desktop.
  • Extract the file and run it.
  • Once completed it will create a log in the root directory (usually C:\).
  • Please post the contents of that log in your next reply.

i ran the scan and that may have been the trick. havent had a redirect yet so thats very good news. thanks! =)
and just as a general question. i have mcafee security center but due to my recent problems i downloaded microsoft security essentials. should i get rid of one since ive been told that having two anti virus programs may be conflicting.

That is good, I would leave MSE installed and uninstall mcafee to prevent conflics. Also Search and Destroy plays nice with MSE, and it provides the browser imunization so that should be all good now.

Looks like TDSSKiller took care of it.

Please download TFC by Old Timer TFC - Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer - Geeks to Go Forums and save it to your desktop.
Save any unsaved work. TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!
Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. If you are using Vista/Windows 7 right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator.
Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.

Next, rescan with Malwarebytes'

  1. Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  2. Click the button.
  3. For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    1. Click on to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    2. Double click on the icon on your desktop.
  4. Check
  5. Click the button.
  6. Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  7. Check
  8. Push the Start button.
  9. ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  10. When the scan completes, push
  11. Push , and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  12. Push the button.
  13. Push
