Please help remove Antimalware Doctor


Recommended Posts

I ran a scan with malwarebytes and it found 5 folders, but I am at the stage where my browser has been hijacked and keeps redirecting me to google. The antimalware doctor is no longer running in my processes and I can no longer find the antimalware doctor.exe or find it in my list of programs. It is not actively posting pop-ups anymore either, but i think there are still traces since i have no control of my browser. what should i do?

update- so from my malwarebyte's log i see that all the files cleared were variants of "RelevantKnowledge" spyware, but none of the diagnostic registry keys or files for AntiMalware Doctor were detected. I regained browser function when I deleted the files and "enemies-name.txt" from my computer, but my Norton firewall is still reporting intrusion attempts and I ocassionally get backdoor trojan warnings as well.

i thought my browser redirects were gone, but when i search "malware" through google, i get redirected to an iGoogle page. how frustrating. any help is much appreciated and pretty urgent because i am in the middle of studying for the MCAT and this is my only computer i can use to access online prep materials.
