Google Redirect Issues.. Malware suspected

I have recently noticed google redirecting me for specific searches. I get redirect to shopping sites (like pronto) whenever my search query is related to a product that can be bought online. If I click the link again from google, I am able to reach the correct website. So you can say my issue is not huge, but I would like to clean my sytem.

I have tried looking at Hijackthis, MalwareBytes, and currently have NOD32 AV running. I have also looked at previous threads in this site and through google but I couldn't solve my problem as most of the help provided there is user-specific.

Let me know what logs/info you need and I would be happy to provide them as soon as possible.

Thank you.

Sorry! The malware seems to have returned. Now I do not know if it was removed in the first place... TDSSKiller cannot find anything and a DNS flush does not resolve the issue. Any suggestions?

I'm having the same problem. It seems to have started when I downloaded Norton Security Suite from my ISP Comcast in the Houston area. My IE browser keeps opening Wikipedia. Help!

I'm having exactly the same problems - we've now run several antivirus programmes, but it keeps coming back (Housecalls finds nothing).
