Google Redirect

I have a Google redirect virus that is very malicious and has done some of the most spontaneous things that I have ever seen. If I search using any browser I am redirected to sites like "VideoCop" or something random. It will shut off my sound and video drivers and has caused my machine to run incredibly sluggish. It has pretty much dominated me and laughed in my face at all of my futile attempts to fight it.
Please help me as I have exhausted all of my expertise(limited)in this area. I recently ran root repair, malware bytes, and combo fix, but to nothing has seemed to change except that I have now lost all sound and can't see a video on you tube or install anything without crashing my computer. Oh, and the restore points I had set up have magically disappeared.

I will be praying to the tech gods by throne!
