I have seen a few discussions on the Google redirect virus but I cannot seem to get rid of it. My hopes are in this forum.
Basically, the Google redirect behaves pretty much like this: every time I do a Google search the page with the Google results comes up. Whenever I click on a link I am first being sent to a different site than the one expected. On a second or third attempt, I am sent to the right web site.
So far I have run Malwarebytes', Superantispy, CCleaner and I am running Avast and Windows Defender and they all came. However, whenever I try to scan with Widows Defender I always get a message saying that "The instruction at 0x5a4d0a9a referenced memory at 0x0c2de90.

Please let me know what my next step should be.

Thank you

I have the same issue. when i search google and click on a link sometimes it lets go to the site and other times it redirects me. ive run malware bytes, sunbeltsoftware's counter spy, bitdefendewr AV, yahoo toolbar anti Malware, and they all come up with nothing. every once and a while MWB finds somin and i clean it but it doesnt seem to help clear the googl redirect. Im not sure how to contiue with this. any suggestions would help us out a great deal.

progrock try going to windows update and see if that fails. I cant even update, im assuming it has something to do with what ever is caseuing this issue.
