Several days ago, my cpu came down with a 'virus.' While browsing, links are hijacked and rather than directing to the desired link, the browser will direct to a "shopping" or "ad" site that can't be closed down. Sometimes it will direct to supposed antivirus sites and once, adult sites. I have tried a various combinations of rkill, malwarebytes, spybot and McAfee and update prior to each scan. Both McAfee and Malwarebytes will detect trojans or rootkits and remove them, and I can browse without issue, but the problem will rear up again after a time. I have run Hijackthis and created a log but don't know what to do beyond that.
