Hijacked browser and anti-virus

Recommended Posts

Got PerfectDefender2009, assuming I may have another virus or two. My browsers (have both IE and Firefox) are hijacked, and if I try to go to any anti-virus or anti-spyware/malware site I get re-routed to a random website of "it's" choosing. Won't let me run Malwarebytes, trend micro, hijackthis. Will allow ccleaner and ETrust Anti-virus, though neither are of any use at this point. I've searched my registry for anything I don't recognize, nothing found. If not in safe mode and try to go to any anti-virus website my browser goes into "lockdown" mode (closes and won't re-open, just errors out and closes immediately). Did find a random reg key in google called "do not delete me". Ready to toss computer out the front door, lol! Any help would be greatly appreciated. :lol:
