Solved Google links are redirected to ads, and ads open randomly.

April 29, 2012 at 15:10:34
Specs: Windows Vista, 1gb
This has happened for the past three days. It all started when a fake antivirus was installed onto my computer. Ran Malwarebytes and got rid of it, but now, when searching something on google and clicking a link, it redirects me to ads such as beauty and health.

Also, when I newly open Opera (my internet browser), a new tap opens up with this website:
http://www.womenshealthbase.com/bea...

Help please

✔ Best Answer
most redirects are unwanted rootkits that get installed. Run these 3 progs in EXACTLY the order listed and DON'T reboot untill after the Malwarebyes scan
1- rkill.exe

2- tdss killer

3- Malwarebytes
If the problems still exist after a reboot, do the same thing in Safe mode with networking, that will probably get it fixed. Good luck
