Here's the topic I made earlier about my problem. It's more in depth.

I'm almost certain that this rogue program:
(discussed up there in a recent article that is exactly what my problem sounds like)

Is causing my firefox and IE to not load any pages even though I have an established and working internet connection. Every now and then my pages will load but only about half way, displaying some things but for the most part of it not showing me anything.

I used Malware program and it found a few things a couple of times, but now it doesn't find anything. Neither does my super antispyware program that was recommended. The first time they found something and said it was completely removed, now nothing is being found.

What should I do?
The rogue program uses a silver shield as a logo and I'm not an idiot so I didn't let it do anything. It was called something like "antivirus program".
I can't post any of the logs right now b/c this is my friend's laptop and I'll have to burn the logs onto a cd and upload them here at a later time.

I am able to access Mozilla, I uninstalled AVG, should I post a malware log? Or what is my next step?

An issue has occurred, when I Google something and click the link I get redirected to this"http://vacmoresherry...q=verizon.net". What in the world is that?
