Random Ads and Google Redirects

Specs: Windows XP

Recently I have been encountering random iexplorer.exe processes appearing in my Windows Task Manager, but the actual window is not there. Random music/ads come on from that internet explorer process (I can tell its from there because I end the process and its gone). When I end process, it just keeps coming back.. I do not know how to get rid of this! Also, whenever I search google and click on a link on google, it will redirect me to random advertisement pages that have nothing to do with whatever I searched.. I don't know how to fix this either.

Please help!

Hi, I pasted this from another post I answered, this will save you lots of time so please follow it carefully:

Download these 3 things to a thumb drive or burn them to a CD on another PC and intsall and run them on your PC.
1- Malwarebytes
2- Trojan remover
3- unhackme (follow the beginners guide) run that untill there are no infections left.

Just ignore all the pop-ups from the infections when you are running the cleaners.

Run those and if they don't load in regular mode, do it in safe mode.

Once there are no more infections you can uninstall trojan remover and unhackme in the add/remove programs.

I removed those infections on 7 different PC's in the past few days.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
