I am having an issue where when go to click on the results it takes me to a random site. My computer has crashed twice, and I got false messages telling me that firefox.exe was infected. I uninstalled my virus program (avg) and a friend recommended getting avira, which I downloaded and installed. I have ran Malwarebytes, Super Anti-Spyware, Spybot, and a program called Advanced Systemcare, and none of them have gotten rid of it. Also ran the Avira. I am at my wits end at what to do!

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.
