I am currently having issues with my browsers-both IE and then Firefox. When I do a search for some topic in Google or Yahoo the normal list of results comes up. However, when I click on one of those links it redirects the browser to some advertisement. I did a search using CCleaner, Malwarebytes and Trojan Remover but the problem still persists. Trojan Remover said that it found an issue with a file called c:/program files/internet explorer/wmpscfgs.exe but this does not show up in my files even after I have changed the settings to show hidden files on my computer. Can anyone help me?

Update:

I ran Spybot and it found 8 items which I deleted and now Firefox is working normally, but Explorer is still messed up.

After looking at a ton of other sites I found the program that will get rid of it is superantispyware. If you have this problem go and download this and it should take care of it!
