I have some kind of virus or malware that is causing a redirect when I click on different websites during a search. It is very random. Some websites go to the right place, and others are re-directed to some other site than it is supposed to go to. I have Microsoft Security Essentials for virus protection. The re-direct started yesterday. Then, I got some fake anti-virus junk with a bunch of pop-ups that said something about Microsoft 2010 security viruses. I knew that was not right, and did what I could to remove that. It seemed to work, but the re-direct thing is still happening. The computer is slow, but probably because I have too much junk on it. Anything to get rid of the re-direct would be helpful and appreciated and any other advice on getting the computer cleaned up to work better and quicker would be a total bonus. Thanks for your time.
I have a Hijack this log as well as several other logs available if needed.
