    Please follow these Steps and attach all three logs when done:

    Also, if Threat Fire is your AV, check it's status. I see the Service but there should be entries in the 04 and 016 section of the HijackThis log. It's possible that it in non-functioning.

    Google Redirecting & Updates Blocked

    Hi Bobbye
    Thanks for your reply, I have downloaded the Avira program, but cannot update it.
    the virus seems to be blocking all updates, so I have ran the software without the updates.
    As per my previous thread "my abilty to update my antivirus software has gone"

    Not being able to update security programs is a common result of having malware. But not that you have Avira on the system, you will need to disable ThreatFire. We'll do that after I check your logs:
