You say you ran a Microsoft AV and two others. What were they? Its not a virus just a annoying toolbar which redirects.It usually works along side the Ask toolbar.(They do collect browser data and send it back to the parent company.)
Download HighJackThis run a full scan, check any Mywebsearch and Ask entires.

Then download CCleaner let it clean up the rest of the left overs.

Thanks for the replies and the support.

I did not load any toolbars.
I did not go into warez land.
I did kill off the Restore files.

Here's what I done ....
1- Ran MS Essentials - didn't find anything
2-Ran Avira - didn't find anything
3-Ran AVG - didn't find anything
4-RanComodo- didn't find anything
5-Ran Malwarebytes-Found about 8 instances- Deleted them all.
6-Ran Crap cleaner - Nothing
7-Logged onto internet - My webface jumps on the screen... I cussed.
8-Ran Malwarebytes again - nothing

I"m done screwing around.
It's reformat time.

Thanks for the support..........

no problem, have fun reformatting and re-installing all your progies.
If you do change your mind you can try these 3 utilities in the exact order
1- rkill.exe
2- KDSS Killer
3- Malwarebytes
fix all they find
