Something has clearly infected my computer. I've tried deleting all temp files and was able to run CCleaner. I cleaned & deleted everything I could, looking up all start-up files to be sure they're OK. I've been running in safe-mode & no anti-virus software will work. I first noticed this after installing IE8. Everytime I click on a search result in Google or other engines, I'm taken to another unrelated site. Something's infected me, but I can't get it out since no anti-virus software will run. Help?
