Hello, recently I started getting random redirects when I click links on Google. I'm taken to various different spam sites. I was also previously getting random pop-ups, but was able to fix that problem by manually deleting some infected files (Malwarebytes was unable to delete them automatically) in my system32 file. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox to no avail. This problem actually started occurring rather randomly, I can't recall visiting any potentially malicious sites.

I'm running on XP Home Service Pack 2. Thank you in advance.


Fixed it by searching the forum. (I'm such a bonehead)

For future reference, GooredFix is what fixed it for me.
