Need help with a computer problem.

Ok so my problem is when i type in a website address, such as facebook.com it goes right to google to search it (google is set as my default search engine) then i try and click on the link for the website and it comes up with the IE cant display web page, but other sites, such as mcb come up no problem, this has just been happening recently. it was going to search-results.com which is some bull**** malware browser hijacker. i tried using combofix, malwarebytes, and spyware s&d... i even tried installing chrome but it doesnt seem to wanna connect to google after i run the installer....this thing is driving me insane...Anyone's help would be appreciated.

looks like you got virus or something blocking your computer from see few sites or it block all site. looks like someone or some thing made your computer block sites so you can not see them.

My advice is the following:

Go here Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 and download the rescue disk. Burn it to CD/DVD. Boot from it. Follow the directions. Hopefully it will connect to the Internet, download the latest definitions and then do a boot time scan of your PC, cleaning out the nasties. Report back if it works.

Last time I saw a redirect that couldn't be solved, it was a virus in the MBR.

Other thing that needs to be checked is "Internet Options" -> "Connections" tab -> "Lan Settings" button. Nothing except "Automatically detect settings" should be checked (and it wouldn't hurt to make sure that nothing remains checked). If the "Proxy Server" is checked, then you now know why you're being redirected.
