On Thanksgiving evening, I realized that my computer had been behaving strangely and most likely was infected by a virus. I was using AVG Free 8.5 at the time and it had not updated normally. Long story short - I was infected and after upgrading to AVG Free 9.0 most of the wonky behavior was addressed with the exception of one last extremely annoying problem.
When using IE8 and entering searches into Google.com things look normal but clicking on one of the links leads to unrelated sites and occasionally browser windows open to junk sites. After 18 hours of trying to eradicate this last problem I've run across this site. I hope folks here can help me fix this.
I own an Asus eeePc, am running XP and was using IE8. Some of the sites that I get redirected to are:
(This last one is what lead me here.)
So far all attempts at anti-virus/anti-malware has not lead to successfully removing the redirect problem.
I have tried Spybot, Malwarebytes, AVG Free 9.0, TFC, CCleaner, SuperAntiSpyware, as well as crawling through registry entries to see if anything looked obviously wrong (I have changed nothing manually).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: Disabled links so that people don't accidentally go there.
