I recently had my computer "fixed up" by a computer man after it was hit by a bad Trojan virus. He told me to use an anti-spyware program and run a scan before using the Internet. I did so, but after about an hour, pop-ups suddenly popped into my Firefox and I quickly shut it down, running my spyware program. It detected Trojan bugs amongst others, but I was unable to fully delete them.

When I first had to get my computer fixed (about four days ago), I caught many bugs and even my Internet connection was shut off.
Now, I can use the Internet, but as I search through Google I am often redirected to other pages (spam pages). I also ran a scan last night using Spybot, and I was shocked to see it scanning past obvious spam/virus, such as "Casino" or "Hotel" and even Virtumonde. I don't even think Spybot detected the harmful things! Not to mention, my iTunes also reported my iPod as corrupt, but on my other working computer, it was perfectly fine. I think the virus hit iTunes too.

I downloaded Malwarebytes, SUPERAntiSpyware, Combofix, and HijackThis. All I need now is help on how to get rid of this virus! Please help me!

PS. I just ran a quick scan using SUPERAntiSpyware. It caught 37 threats called Adware. Tracking Cookie.
