Download and install this program. The redirect virus is a rootkit virus. This should kill it.

joellon50, if that doesn't do the job, there're some others you can try. Some rootkits can be a real PIA. If you need to clean one, Malware Bytes (can't offer you a link, Google for location) seems to be the preferred remover, but I've run into a few it couldn't handle. Superantispyware seems able to handle all comers. (Info only. I’m not paid for recommendation. WARNING! FYI, a full scan on mine takes over an hour.) can do the job and you can get it free @:
among other places. They have a Vista compatible version if needed. Dunno about Windows 7 or later.
If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update any cleaner prior to running. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.
Disable 'restore' after cleaning and run it again (to remove any nasties living there, restart after cleaning) so the nasty doesn't get put back should you later ‘restore’.
The restore thing is critical. May not be your deal at all, but won't hurt anything to try.
