Hello,

I've run into a problem with my computer. Somehow, it's become infected with trojans - the really annoying ones with the "Would you like to install Windows Antivirus" or "You have xyz trojan, would you like to remove?" popups every ten seconds in the lower-right corner. This happened once before a long while back, and I was able to get rid of it (however I can't, for the life of me, remember how), but they seem to be a lot more resilient this time. Every webpage in both Firefox and Internet Explorer is re-directed somewhere other than where I try to go, or to an "error message," (Internet Explorer cannot display this webpage, etc, only the text on the page is all wrong) and all of my anti-virus or malware removal programs will only run in safe mode. None of them will open when I try to run them on a normal reboot. I ran Adaware and Malwarebytes in safe mode, but the problem still hasn't been resolved.

Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.
