I seem to have the same problem as many others. I have somehow acquired a virus that redirects me to junk sites whenever I try to follow a link. I have read different forums for hours about this and can't seem to find any posts that give any real information.
So far, I have downloaded and run Smitfraud, Malwarebytes', Superantispyware, and Antivir PE classic. Each of them found and removed a few things, but this has not resolved the redirecting issue. As of today, I sat down to use the computer and things on my desktop look different than normal. Seeing this, I ran a couple of the aforementioned programs and found a whole list of trojans and other things that were not there last night when I ran the same programs. The computer has not been used during that time period, so these seem to have just popped out of nowhere.
I appreciate any help you can provide me. Thanks!
