HELP!Virus redirects to spam sites and other stuff

Hello People, I am infected with a virus that is redirecting me to other sites like spam/advertisements on Google Chrome. Also, this virus wouldn't let me open or use Microsoft Security Essentials,as soon as i open it, it closes immeditatelly, the same with Windows defender. Only if i boot into safe mode can i access them. So i uninstalled MSE and installed Avira in the mean time. So please I really need help i posted in other forums and no one is responding, so I need your guy's help since you guys respond to my other questions. It looks like this virus is getting worse, and i feel like my system is slower.

Hello. First download and install Malwarebytes. Do a full scan of your system and see the results. Also if some threads is found be sure to remove all.

Hi MaxPayne try this:

Emsisoft Free Emergency Kit: portable malware scanner | Free removal of Viruses, Bots, Spyware, Keyloggers and Trojans

And it doesn't need to be installed on a usb but can be run locally. Do a full update for the definitions and a deep scan and see what it pulls up. If nothing comes up do you have a clean image that you can restore your computer from? If not I would definitely pull all my important stuff of the computer, documents, pictures, ect. and do a clean install:

This is a last resort if all else fails Max cause I wouldn't trust an infected system...

Run your Windows 7 disk from boot and when it gets to the menu that says Install go to the Repair Your Computer and select the top selection and open the command prompt instead and follow this tutorial:

Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command

I would run the clean all method to wipe the disk completely..

Good luck Seth

WOW! That blows! Does your computer have a recovery partition? If not I would get on the horn to the manufacture and give him a piece to say the least, that's not even cool. You should have some way of restoring your computer.
