google being redirected

Google Gb-1001 search appliance
January 30, 2010 at 14:21:38
Specs: Windows XP
When I do a google search and then try to go to a desired website I'm being redirected. I had a virus that kept telling me to download a program etc. I ran Malwarebytes a few times to finally get it cleared up and everything is back to normal except this. I also ran spy bot and tried Adaware which was finding something but kept freezing at the end of the scan so I couldn't remove what it found. Any suggestions?

Microsoft claims Windows Defender will remove this virus. Read about it here.

I ran windows defender and it said it found Alureon and deleted it but I still have the same problem being redirected when I go to a link.

Be sure to clear the bogus DNS server addresses that are set by
this virus. Use ipconfig /all and look for a DNS server with the IP
address 83.149.115.157 followed by 4.2.2.1. Remove those from
your configuration then clear your DNS cache (ipconfig
/flushdns)and you should be fine. Be sure to check all of your
network connections.
