    I am running windows 7 home premium and today I downloaded a .exe file, when I ran it, it did nothing. I predicted it was a virus so i tried to run MSE and it didn't let me. It disabled my Security center service so i cant system restore.

    In services.msc when i try to start the Windows Defender and Security Center Service, it briefly starts and then disables again almost instantly.

    When web browsing, after a google search it will redirect me to random sites when i click on a link. (google redirect virus?)

    I use Google Chrome but sometimes internet explorer will open and show a random website.

    * Ive done scans with Malwarebytes and removed infected files. (problem persists)
    * Ive scanned with AVAST and have had no results
    * Ive cleaned registry with CCleaner

    So my problems at the moment is the security center is not running and when web browsing it redirects me to random pages.

    I would appreciate any help
