so you have malwarebytes, did you run full scan? also try running that in safe mode
check your hosts file as well in windows dir\system32\drivers\etc, make sure no redirection there
run

close all browsers and clean the cache (eg download freebie tool ccleaner, does a nice job cleaning). somethings I had issues with google redirecting, cleaning cache helped

make sure all your windows updates, security settings (antivirus and malware) are up to date before doing scan

might be worth running tddskiller as well http://support.kaspersky.com/viruses/solutions?qid=208280684

there is hitman pro but Im not too keen on that, you can give it a go if you so wish

Download Combofix by sUBs.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix

Before running Combofix, temporary disable any firewall(s) shield(s) ect...to prevent any conflicts with Combofix. After Combofix is done scanning, it will create a log, for further instructions, save and paste the results by Attach File, or by Code Snippet so other experts can take a look at it. Once after the log looks clean, you may enable your firewall(s) shield(s) ect. Combofix will disconnect your machine from the Internet. Your Internet connection will be automatically restored just before Combofix completes its scan. If Combofix runs into problems, your Internet connection can be manually restored by restarting your machine.

You'll might need to rename the file before saving to your desktop so it will not be blocked.

Please note: Don't run Combofix in Safe Mode.

2 things. Make sure in ie8 that proxy has not be set by the virus. Click tools, internet options, connections, lan settings. Nothing should be in any of those boxes though some people will check automatically detect settings. Failing that...

Run combo fix http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/combofix/how-to-use-combofix The link is 2/3 down the page blue highlighted bleepingcomputer link. This is a must have program for xp. Follow the wizard as it runs in widows in a dos emulator. If you can't disable your antivirus no sweat.

Then run winsockfix http://winsockfix.en.softonic.com/

This should get you there.

Good luck,
Ken

If still having issues run these :)
Run TdssKiller and Hitmanpro.

If you had a root kit then you had a problem. Now get it all out with a combo fix &/or Malwarebytes cocktail.

All looks well, I am surfing properly again.  I would like to use the computer a little more before I accept the solution.  Is that possible?
