Hi malcontented,

If Malwarebytes is already installed then there is no need to run the renamed installer.
You may have been hit with this newer variant though:

The removal instructions are the same, just make sure to get the latest updates.

A few days ago I got this malware which I believe is a variant of this one. It was called Win Antispyware 7. I followed some manual removal instructions. Basically i removed all traces of the file "ave.exe" and its registry entries. It got rid of the spyware pop ups. But now I keep getting redirected to fishy spyware and other search results when I search for something on google, i.e. i search for whatever then i click on a search result and it takes me to a totally unrelated search-type or spyware-type page. I guess its related. Any advice?
