Hello everyone, I have had a nasty virus on my computer the past few days. It first popped up as the fake "security protection" program on my computer. Then I got the google redirect virus. Now it's in it's worse stage and it won't let me open ad-aware, malawarebytes anti-malaware, hijack this, and it even disabled my mcafee program. I think it has something to do with windows because when i try to to open these programs it says "can't connect to service" or "windows doesnt give you permission to open that". I'm still able to use spybot search & destroy, Mozilla and Internet explorer and can connect to the Internet. I don't know what to do. If anyone can help, that would be great!

How do you know it is surely a Google redirect virus!
I think that there is some other infection in your PC.
And which security program it was popped up...give a more detailed information about the problem.

Have been moving house and internet connectivity is still an ongoing issue, so my apologies.
Have you tried running the rest of the tools mentioned in the sticky thread, such as Gmer, MBA-M and DDS?
If not, please do so and post the logs.
