Hi, I've been working on a friend's PC for a few days now. At first I was unable to get anything to run, including the taskmanager. After running numerous spyware, virus scanners, etc. I was able to get it back into a running state, but a couple of problems persist. It seems to have the Google redirect problem where clicking on a search result gets redirected to an ad site. I am also unable to get MS Security Essentials to run at all even after uninstalling/reinstalling. This is the antivirus that was running before anything happened. I've completed the prelims and can post the logs if needed. Please help!
