Good evening, first post as well :)

This afternoon while I was browsing some websites, I was infected with the Huer Virus (I know this because when I scanned with AVG free virus scan, that was the majority of the entries) as well as ZLob or something?

Anyway, what this virus did was change my homepage, and redirected all typed internet adresses to either ads or an internet page saying that my computer may be infected with a virus, please download these antivirus programs were are trying to sell you (obviously fake, they had three 'antivirus' programs for download which you had to pay for suggested, as well as bad grammar and spelling). It also installed a bunch of toolbars into internet explorer.

I scanned with AVG, removed as much of the crap as I could, rebooted in safemode, scanned and deleted as much as I could again. I suspect this virus is not fully removed though.

My reason for suspecting this is that about half of the internet pages that I open will not connect to anything - they give a "page cannot be displayed" error. It could have been just those sites but I have been trying to search the internet for about half an hour now (in fact, this forum was the first one that actually worked) and get repeated "page cannot be displayed" errors.

I downloaded firefox in an attempt to fix this, but apparently the problem goes deeper than that for the I am having the same issue. If it helps, before I scanned with AVG, any internet site I attempted to visit from google.com via link would redirect me to an advertisement on something completely unrelated (though strangely enough yahoo.com worked fine...)

Thankyou in advance for your time, Hijackthis log is included below. I hope I can get this issue resolved quickly as I am not fond of reformatting my computer! :)
