Malwarebytes Scan Locked Me Out - Google Redirect

I sat down at my wife's machine last weekend and noticed that VIPRE was going nuts saying it was quarantining a series of trojan files so I let it do its thing. I then ran a Malwarebytes scan and it found 26 objects upon which it prompted me to reboot. Upon reboot, I couldn't log in so I went into safe mode and ran another Malwarebytes scan and Vipre quick scan which turned up nothing.

Once this was done, I tried to visit your site to post the log but was redirected and so tested some more random searches and was redirected also. I had to leave the problem then as I just now have some time to address it.

Today, I rebooted the machine, got to the safe mode screen but then the arrow keys wouldn't function - attempted this several times. So naturally I can't select safe mode and it boots into normal after so many seconds. Even though I knew if I could get to the safe mode screen the key board must be functioning, I nonetheless replaced the batteries but again no joy.

This machine was infected with a google redirect once before and was fixed by Rorschach.

I'm sending this post on my laptop.
