Download and install a legitimate anti-spyware software. Choose from malwarebytes antimalware or superantispyware. Download links Both are free and does a great job at detecting and removing spyware. Download, install and update before running a full system scan. You may also want to enter safe mode before running a scan. Click Start, click Shut down, click Restart, click Ok. During your computer starting process press F8 key on your keyboard multiple times until you see Windows Advanced Option menu, then select Safe mode from the list. Then run a scan.

If these programs fail to detect all infections you could try Hitman Pro. Sometimes it is able to detect infections that other scanners misses.
You can also try TDSSKiller by Kaspersky. This tool also removes infections that causes redirect problems.
