Google redirected to Anti Virus Pro Scan 2009

After watching some YouTube videos, my computer got infected with a browser hijacker. Each time I search on google and click on its results, the browser is redirected to Anti Virus Pro Scan 2009. I have used SuperAntispyware and Malwarebytes to scan and clean my PC but to no avail. Hope someone can help. Thanks

    I had a similar problem and have now resolved it.

    I could see a rogue process in my task manager but it would reaappear everytime I removed it. File search in
    Windows is useless as it would not locate the rogue file
    and these rogue files seemed to be hidden. Setting
    options in Windows seemed to make no difference. I still could not see the files or folders. Any ideas to view/find hidden files/folders for the future?

    I finally resolved the underlying problem.

    This will take some time but it worked for me.

    BACKUP ALL IMPORTANT FILES TO DVD/CD. ANYTHING YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO LOSE BACK IT UP. THIS IS IMPORTANT. FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS AT YOUR OWN RISK. NO GUARANTEES GIVEN. IT WORKED FOR ME BUT EVERY PC IS DIFFERENT.

    Details below may remove files that you wanted. Don’t
    keep any files that show as rogue but make a note of them. If you still need them afterwards, download them from reputable websites or restore from your backup if they are personal files. When you restore, triple scan for infection!!!

    Download SpyBot Search&Destroy and Install (if not done so already)
    Don’t SCAN YET!!!

    Download CCleaner and Install (if not done so already)
    Don’t SCAN YET!!!

    Download ComboFix.exe . DO NOT INSTALL OR RUN YET!!!

    PHYSICALLY DISCONNECT YOUR PC FROM THE INTERNET. REMOVE THE CABLE OR SWITCH THE ROUTER OFF.

    Firstly, clean you internet Internet cache/temporary files/etc. This speeds things up for later

    Run SpyBot Search&Destroy.
    Do a full scan with SpyBot Search&Sestroy.
    This will probably NOT remove it but will get rid off other junk.

    Run CCleaner and again do a full scan.
    Also use the regisrty cleaner and run a full scan.
    Remove all entries it finds.
    This will probably NOT remove it but will get rid off other junk.

    Do a full scan of your system with your virus scanner. Remove all rogue entries it finds even if they are your favourite programs.
    This will probably NOT remove it but will get rid off other junk.

    Reboot your PC

    Final bit. You have now got rid of most junkware on your PC.
    Run Combofix (It DOES NOT NEED AN INSTALL)
    DO not run any other program now.
    Run ComboFix. On slow PCs it may take a while so although you may not see anything, it will work. Be Patient. Follow instructions. THIS MAY REMOVE SOME OF YOUR FAVOURITE FILES AUTOMATICALLY. LET IT RUN.

    This should resolve the problem. Let us know if it works.
