Google Redirect Virus on Opera and Firefox

Specs: Windows Vista, 2944mb

Last week, I somehow managed to get this redirecting virus on both of these browsers. Right now I'm using an old browser, Mozilla, to browse the interwebs, as it was not affected by the redirect virus.

Now, I've tried Hitman Pro, Malwarebytes, Avast, Iobit security, and spyware blaster and none of them did ANYTHING. One of them however managed to do something towards my registry because I probably wasn't paying close attention.

That is my second problem in conjunction with this fiasco. Just this week, I come home, and my computer is already running, then I click a program and windows says "finding problem...", even though the program worked well in the morning.
So I restart my computer. Computer goes into BSOD with a STOP error. 0x00000(don't remember how many zero) A, and today was a 7.
Now, I am in the process of updating drivers so, possibly this will go away.

The most, I am concerned about the redirecting virus. Please help. Thank you.
