About two weeks ago I was looking up porn and I ended up getting a system fix virus. After several attempt to get an anti virus on my normal vista operating system I desired to try putting avast on my secondary operating system of windows 7, knowing that it would run at startup before the virus had a chance to dig itself in. After getting it installed and running it I was able to get into vista and get it downloaded, installed, and ran. I was relieved to have fixed my computer, or at least I thought. As the computer sat there running , a strange voice came on my computer. It sounded like a news broadcast but with no window popping up. So I went into task manager thinking winching wasi running in the background, but there was nothing running, just my HP advisor program which starts on startup. That same night I also had an internet explorer window just open up with no one doing anything. The page it brought up was nothing unusual just our home page of yahoo, but none the less it confessed me. So I ran avast again and after it went through its paces and rebooted all seemed fine. So I went onto my Google crime browser and typed in a search. It all worked fine, the results came up and I scrolled through them like normal, but when I clicked on one of the links it kicked me out to some random web page that had little to do with my search. So went back and dryer a different one but it kicked me out to the same strange web site. Confused and boggled I set the computer down again, but after a while the background broadcast started up again. So I downloaded the malwarebites program and ran that it found a Trogan but didn't fix my problem. So I ran the 2computer anti viruses ( avast & malwarebits) again but still no luck. After doing some research I found out I had a redirect virus, and that normal anti viruses wouldn't find it because it is too small a program and that it is in the internet file In my computer. So in hearing this I went into my control panel, network and internet , and repeated all my browser history (cookies, temporary files, everything). Then I tried to reset my internet explorer settings, but it kept telling me I need to close all other programs first. So I went into task manager and closed everything but the window I needed to reset the settings, but still no luck. So I rebooted the computer and tried again with no luck. So I thought I would check the internet again this time it work fine so I thought I had fixed at least one of the problems. So I ran a avast run again for good measures, and let computer run over night, but when I tried it again this morning it started redirecting me again. So I giveup trying to fix this on my own, and turn to someone for help. So and someone please help me
