Specs: Windows Vista, 2gb
Hi my name is Gustavo. I am running windows vista 32b and recently my computer got a virus. I ran mcafee and deleted some trojans and restored the system to an earlier date and all seems well except that when i click on a link in google (or any other search engine, in firefox and IE) I'm redirected to some odd ads.
Please help me.

I am a big fan if doing a clean install from OEM media.

I never trust trying to repair. You will have to be very cautious with all your usb and burned media as it may contain those and more malware.

To speed up the recovery process you may with to make an good image of the system after all the updates and apps are installed and save it.

When you get finished learn and use as many best practices as you can to avoid this in the future.
