Browser Redirect - Help


Recommended Posts

I'm still getting a browser redirect on search engines. I've ran Malwarebytes, Hijack This, Kapersky etc... but still have the problem. At this point MBAM reports nothing, neither does Kapersky. I have believe its an atapi.sys infection, I've ran a SystemLook scan for that file as well. I will post both logs below:
