Simply erasing the cache is not going to fix your problem!
You may now be infected with a virus, malware or more

Please post exactly what is occuring
More info is needed

In the beginning there was the command line.

Do not go to adult sites. I know this may bother some of you, but the fact is that a large amount of malware is pushed through these types of sites. I am not saying all adult sites do this, but a lot do.

Have you tried to scan with your security tools from Safe Mode. The limited services allowed to run in this mode should disable the malware for removal.

Next: Download SUPERAntiSypware,Free Home User version

Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from HERE and unzip into the program's folder.)
Under the "Configuration and Preferences", click the Preferences... button.
Click the "General and Startup" tab, and under Start-up Options, make sure "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" box is unchecked.
Click the "Scanning Control" tab, and under Scanner Options, make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
Close browsers before scanning.

Do not run a scan just yet.
Reboot into Safe mode,

Scan with SUPERAntiSpyware as follows:
Launch the program and back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan and click "Next".
After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.

To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
Click Preferences,
the Statistics/Logs tab.
Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
