Hey there, First off, I just want to say thank you for existing and helping out so many folks. Kind of cool that this even exists. I'm afraid I have the same problem that a whole bunch of other people are having, so I'm sorry to pile on with the same issue, but if anyone could help me out I would really, really appreciate it. I first noticed something up when whenever I'd open Firefox, an ad page would open alongside my startup page, and every now and again when I'd open a new page while browsing. Then I noticed the google redirect, which happened for a couple weeks, after which time my files started to hide themselves until I couldn't see anything but the recycle bin. The Programs, Documents, Music, etc. folders were all empty. Then a bluescreen would appear whenever I tried to boot normally, so now I can only run in safe mode. I looked around on other forums (ha before finding this one that tells you not to do what other people were told to do, which is why I finally joined) and found the "unhide" program, so I can see most of my files again, although I still can't see Malwarebytes or Avira (I have to rightclick on something and click "scan with ..." to get either of those programs running). I also downloaded the mbrcheck, which told me I had either something infected or "non-standard," but to be honest I have no idea what any of this means, and I've given up trying to figure this out on my own. I'd appreciate any help so very much! Thank you and take care.
