  1. I had a spyware infection, and was able to rollback and restore using the windows restore point to 2-days ago.

    Everything went fine, but I am now today getting some DNS redirects when I click some google search links.

    I ran Malwarebytes, found 1-instance of rogue antispyware
    Ran Trend Micro Housecall online scanner found nothing
    Ran crap cleaner
    Updated all MS updates
    Malwarebytes found nothing on 2nd scan

    If. you would like help looking for malware, please follow the Preliminary Virus and Malware Removal steps HERE.

    When you have finished, include all of the logs in your next reply for review.

    Questions:
    1. Please explain what you mean by this: DNS redirects
    2. What was the spyware infection you had?
    3. Did you try to do any cleaning or just do a System Restore? (which would not have been recommended.)
