Hi there, so I've been struggling with this for a couple of days and have finally got to a friend's computer to post the 1,2,3 of Step 8. Everytime I do a google search and click on a website I get redirected to some junk website trying to sell me something or cripple my machine. I did a search through the system and found a possible cause of 'SkypeNames.exe' (as I had recentlyinstalled skype). But then I noticed extra 'svchost.exe' files and the antivirus was blocking trojans every five minutes. I also think the first scan I did included 'Trojan.Dropper' and 'Trojan.Downloader: JS/Renos' but I haven't seen them since. I know it's dumb of me but I forgot to renew the antivirus so had been running 'commando' for quite sometime. I have the free version of Avast now. I've included my logs. If you could help I would be much appreciated. All the best, Ro.
