Computer help...please

Its a google redirect virus.

There are a lot of articles out there on how to remove it. If you can use a different computer, search for "google redirect virus".

I went through this about two months ago and it drove me nuts. Fortunately (for me) I had already prepared my HDD for my yearly reformatting, so that's what I did and just reinstalled XP, it was the simplest fix, although my OS has its own hard drive, and my other three hard drives contain my data/programs/music etc.

One program I use which seems to come up a lot across the web in helping to remove this is http://malwarebytes.org/ I purchased mine and it does a great job cleaning up any crap on my computer, I cant speak for the free version though as I've never tried it. But it may be worth a shot.

Another option is to sign up at a tech support site and inquire there since it does require numerous steps (and a couple different programs) to remove it. I use http://www.techguy.org/ for any problems I cannot resolve on my own. Very helpful people who will help you through each step and provide links to which programs you will need.
