i believe i have this virus but cant get rid of it
it is also affecting other search engines, and i no longer have access to Windows Task Manager (win 7)
i am using nis 2012 - i think. i cant see how to find out. it would help if norton hadnt hidden this information.
i have tried the following:
scan with nis - clear
scan with norton NPE - clear
scan with malwarebytes antimalware - clear
ran norton removal tool for TDSS - which i gather is another name for this trojan
MBAM did initially find some malwares including win32.dll - i clicked ok to fix them, and then windows wouldnt boot and i had to go back to a restore point. i'm surprised it was so stupid as to remove this file.
please can anyone suggest anything to get rid of this thing?

I'm assuming that it is the Backdoor.Tidserv virus.
Symantec has a dedicated removal tool for it here:

I'm not aware of any other other Google redirect viruses.
I'll check up on it.
