Hello. I have a redirect virus on my computer and cannot seem to get rid of it. It will redirect me to a different website than what I was looking on Google or Yahoo. Also, computer will become very sluggish and will eventually come to a crawl. Also, for no reason at all a new tab will open up to a random website. I have McAfee, which apparently did not catch the virus. I have tried several times to run a full scan on McAfee, but cannot get through a full scan without it freezing up. I have since installed Spybot Search and Destroy, Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware, and Super Antispyware. All of these programs have caught a few things, but not the problem that I am having. I would appreciate any help with this problem. Thanks.
