I got into some pretty nasty malware yesterday and apparently downloaded several malware programs/viruses inadvertently. I just managed to get something called Windows Antivirus Pro removed from my computer, and I thought that the browser hi-jacking I've been experiencing would also cease, but apparently it is being caused by something else. Usually but not always, clicking a Google search result link in both IE and Firefox redirects to a site called clickover.cn/garblednonsense or some similar site. I have run scans with Ad Aware and MalwareBytes that have apparently not detected this. Is this just a "typical" browser hijacker? What should I do to remove it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

BTW -- can this bug also log keystrokes? Just wondering if I should avoid logging into PayPal while I'm dealing with this...
