|My system appears to be infected with a redirection virus, as I've seen many similar questions asked on this thread and others, often with the exact same symptoms.|
Any time I attempt to use google the results redirect to a seemingly random, unrelated ad page.
It works perfectly fine for the first few seconds after starting up firefox, then the problems begin to occur.
I've been able to get around it so far by simply copying the link address and pasting it to the address bar but I want to get rid of whatever this is before it can get any worse.
Following instructions given in similar threads, to people with the same problems I have tried the Kaspersky TDSSKiller, Spybot SD, and Hitman Pro scan-and-removal tools, but all came up clean apart from a few tracking cookies, and my mcafee real-time scan found and 'successfully' removed a trojan around the time I first started encountering these problems.
The problem is persistent and I've run out of ideas on how to remove it from my system.
I'm running windows 7, my mcafee is up to date, and after getting no results have removed the other free malware-removal tools from my computer.
Any help with this problem would be much appreciated.
