Do you mean that the programs won't run, or that they ran but found nothing?

If mbam won't run, try re-naming it BEFORE you download it.

Try running a scan with Hitman Pro:

What os are you running?

You can removed it without buying the scanner.
Check this article and use TDSSKiller.

I had a similar redirect virus. What worked for me was Hitman Pro. Try it below:

sb7785,

If you read the previous posts to this question, you will see that Hitman Pro has already been suggested.

i have tried hitman pro, spybot, ca and others and none stop the Google redirector.

hitman and gmer identifed the file iostor.sys as a suspicious file. this is the RAID controller. if i replace the file i am told the hidden root kit will simply reinfect the new file.

 CA said the only  option was to run Combofix. Combofiix took 15 minutes to start running and utilization was at 100%. Then Combofix ran properly and found some problems and deleted some files. ran combofix again and no problems showed up but the Google searches are redirected only the first time. if i search on CNN i am redirected. if i hit the back button i will be on CNN. if i search for CNN again it goes goes straight to CNN. but the next day CNN is redirected the first time but not the next.
i guess the only option is reformat an reconfigure an Autocad machine.

Any ideas?

I MAY HAVE FOUND THE SOLUTION. GO TO THE SITE BELOW AND DOWNLOAD THE EXE VERSION OF TSSKILLER . THE ZIP VERSION WOULD NOT EXTRACT. I AM RUNNING GMER NOW AND IT HAS PAST THE POINT WHERE THE INFECTED FILE WAS LOCATED. GOOGLE DID WORK PROPERLY AFTER THE REBOOT. I HOPE THE VIRUS, SPYWARE OR ROOTKIT OR WHATEVER DOES NOT COME BACK.
