Read here on the details of the virus and removal instructions...

Thanks for trying to help, but all of the file names it mentions are just [random]. They could be anything - how do I pick those out from normal system files (digging into the guts of software tends to reveal a lot of gibberish filenames)? I tried the video on that site, but it's talking about something else.

Try the removal tool designed for this specific piece of malware...
Btw, is this a typo "livesearchnnow.com" or does your malware have this exact name, with two N's?
Edit: Also try removing via Superantispyware

This might go without saying but, have you checked under Addons if livesearchnow.com didn't add an entry into Search Providers?
Edit: Have you also ran Ccleaner?

Yep, done and done I'm in the process of running some of the spyware software you sent me, I'm doing full scans so it'll take a whole, and it's getting late here, so I'll let you know how it goes in the morning. I kind of wonder if its just a partly functional remnant from a larger infection (this started last night, but I was certain I had removed it until this afternoon). Do you think that only the redirect part could still be running? On the other hand, the sites it redirects to are full of ads, so maybe it's just a scam to get ad views, since there's no ransom ware going on here. Thanks so much for trying to help me and being patient!
