Have turned off system restore. Ran AVG scan in Safe Mode. Removed dozens of problems. Rebooted again to SM, scanned with MalwareBytes. Again, removed a lot of junk. Spybot removed a couple of things. Adaware found only cookies. Windows Defender found nothing. Still getting LOTS of link redirects. Please help me! Would rather not nuke and pave, but I will if need be.
