Starting yesterday, Google kept redirecting my hits and I realized that it was probably some bleepty malware problem. So I used malwarebytes and ad-aware and AVG and scanned my computer using all of them in safe mode, and found a few things and deleted them.

Then, I checked the hosts file, saw one thing that shouldn't be there so I deleted it. Both AVG and malwarebytes say they dont find anything anyore, but I keep running ad-aware and it keeps finding more! Why doesnt it find everything in one scan?

Google is still redirecting me....
what else can I try to fix this problem!?!?! I'm desperate! I have to submit university apps soon and I don't want to have any issues!


Oh and I'm using IE7 for my browser, and I have windows vista with all the newest updates.
