  1. I got the google redirect malware on my netbook, I've ran ccleaner, malwarebytes, spybot, superantispyware, and combofix, as well as the 8-steps, and I think its gone, but I'm not 100% sure, maybe you guys can help?
    Here are the logs I've gotten after all the scanning and removing.

    Thank you for your time.
