my search from google got hijacked

I am running windows 7 64 bit.

I ran cc cleaner  and then combo fix....
but what are some other programs that I should consider running in the process before I return the workstation back to service?

Go to and download hitmanpro.    It's a really good tool.   Free for the first 30 days.   It's one of the few Malware Removal tools that I will pay for.   If there's anything left on your computer after combofix and Malwarebytes Hitman will get it.

It is because you PC is infected with a rootkit virus (perhaps zeroaccess).

Scan with Malwarebytes Antimalware antirootkit, and TDSSkiller.  ComboFix should have cleared it also. > >

I also see I have something called safe search... what is that...
It's redirect virus.  That's the problem.

Unistall it, please.  And run MalwareBytes AntiMalware (free) to remove it.

Or, restore your PC to a time before the problem occurred.
