Okay here it goes. I came across that stupid koobface virus and got hit. First thing I did was come here. AVG picked it up. Then I had to go to my laptop to get the files from here. Got Malwarebytes and pretty much took care of it. I know something is still going on due to the fact that I can't update AVG, I can't go to geekstogo.com, and any other site that has to do with anti-virus help. Search engines are messed up. It just redirects me to bogus sites.

On Facebook, I can't view my profile and friends but that is probably on their end.

I have read a few threads on this so I am a little familiar with what to do. But a little help would be nice to get rid of this thing. The thread that I read was:

So there it is. Now to fix it. Thank you.

You will have to follow the directions below and download all the programs and then try to run them on the infected system. Then copy all the logs and follow along from there.
I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal Forum and run all the steps located in the
START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own.
If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum.
If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
