Trying to mend a pc which has number of starnge symptons

1. Everytime enter a antivirus website into google, google disappears but other websites work fine
2. Dozens junk emails keep appearing
3. Mcafee seems to have completely frozen so i have removed it
4. System restore won't work

Any ideas what virus this could be??? How can i remove it, spybot and adware aren't finding anything

Give this a try. click here
30 day trial but it will remove anything it finds.If after 30 days you do not want to keep it just remove it.It will also sort out your host file if the problem is in there.

The latest viruses are designed to hide from av/spyware. The only way to compleatly rid a of of viruses is to format the drive
