Hello Friends,

I'm running into a problem with my Internet search bar (not the address bar). I put in a search word and click search and it takes me to Google. I then select a website and then my browser (I use several and it occurs on all) takes me to a unwanted internet ad. I've also noticed that I've been getting many viruses lately and I feel that since my system is compromised that it is allowing more virus to get in. Recent scans using MalwareBytes has found 99 viral infections. I recently had a huge bout with some nasty virus and got rid of them all(assuming) except for the search bar issue.

Can anyone help me?
