Got a virus.

Not sure how I got it but I've got a pretty nasty virus on my laptop. I've tried installing AVG & Trend Micro but I'm thinking the virus is blocking my internet connection to update the programs. I have yet to successfully install one because they want to update. Also whenever I google something like AVG, I'll go to click on the AVG website and I always get redirected elsewhere. So it seems it won't let me download any sort of Virus scanner.

Any thoughts?

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

I've tried with both IE & Chrome.

Good way to get a "foothold" into the fortress of the virus is to run combofix.exe

Google it and run it in safemode.

Did this and virus scan is running right now, must be a nasty little bugger because it seems a trojan has planted itself into multiple places. 18 sources found so far.
