I'm having a malware issue. I'll type in a Google search, Wiki search, go to a website (i.e. NFL.com) and be redirected to various websites. The redirection goes through directdr.com

I tried the same steps as 'boopme' posted in his first post in the following thread, but the problem has persisted: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/274425/google-search-results-redirecting-and-also-directrdrcom-pop-ups/

I also created a new System Restore point and deleted all the others.

I figured I should consult before going forward with a HJT.
