I am new to this site, and it is my first time posting.
I seem to have a search engine virus that is affecting google/yahoo on all different types of browsers including IE 7, firefox, and chrome. I have spent hours upon hours trying to find a fix and running various spyware programs. I have run Mcafee, Spybot S&D, Malwarebytes, Combofix, SuperAntiSpyware, Smitfraudfix, etc. Each one I have run has picked up some infected items, but I have gotten rid of them (mostly cookies) and still have the problem. I have cleared my cache, internet history and cookies.
The virus seems to affect the first page of the search engine's search results. For example, if I type in "baseball" in google, I get regular search results, but the green link under the result is a link to things like toseeka.com, stop-sign.com, findlinks.com, shopful.net, etc. If I click on the search result, it takes me to one of those sights, making google pretty much useless. Any help to rid this terrible virus would be greatly appreciated, as I feel like I have tried everything and am still experiencing this awful problem.
