There must be 1,000's of posts in computing.net about the google redirect virus. I have removed it from many PC's and laptops with the least amount of scanning.
You can start with:
1- Malwarebytes, update it and clean out all it finds
2- Run Hitman Pro untill it is clean.
The above 2 should remove any spyware, viruses or rootkits if present.

If the problem still persists then you can try combofix and be sure to follow the instructions on the download page:

Download Malwarebytes or SUPERantispyware and update it to
the latest database. After this cleans the infection, and you find
that you cannot go to certain websites, you may need to clear
the hosts folder.
