Please download TDSSKiller
Save it to the Desktop.

Note: If the infection does not let you download files on the infected computer, download the files/programs requested below to a clean computer and then transfer them to the Desktop of the infected computer. You can use a USB flash drive, or other removable media (CD, DVD, or, external hard drive).

Double-click* on TDSSKiller.exe to run the tool.
(*Vista/Windows 7 users, right-click the file, and select: Run As Administrator)

Click the Start Scan button.

Do not use the computer during the scan

If the scan completes with nothing found, click Close to exit.

When the scan finishes it displays a Scan results screen stating whether or not an infection was found on your computer.

To remove the infection, click on the Continue button.
If it does not say Cure on the results screen, leave it at the default action of Skip, and press the Continue button.

Do not change to Delete or Quarantine as it may delete infected files that are required for Windows to operate properly.

Reboot to finish the cleaning process.

If no reboot is requested, click on Report.
A log file should appear.

A log file named TDSSKiller_version_date_time_log.txt (i.e. TDSSKiller. is created and saved to the root directory (usually Local Disk C:).

>>Please provide the contents of TDSSKiller in your reply.<<

Next, download Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware (black button with green and white icon) Save to the Desktop:

Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program. (For Vista/Windows 7, select: Run as Administrator)

Click the Remove Selected button to get rid of the malware.

I've said this before...in ORDER for TDSS killer to work, you should first run rkill.exe to stop the malware process.

TDSS killer will not find a rootkit alone because they hide.

Be assured that the TDSS RootKit Removal Tool (TDSSKiller.exe) can identify and remove TDSS RootKit malware on its own.

RootKits do hide, and, for that very reason TDSKiller was configured. :-)

Please press on with running the tool, and, depending on its finding, and that of Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, we will proceed to help you resolve your problem.

Sorry, I've been doing PC repairs as a living for almost 10 years now and what i mentioned is something I have experienced many times in the past.
Redirects are actually quite easy and quick to resolve using the proper tools.

I tried ALL the "anti-malware", anti-spyware, etc... programs...
BUT all I had to do to fix it was disable ALL "XUL" add-ons and restart Firefox and problem solved!!! NO More Re-directing!!!
Hope this helps!!!
