For a while now, often when I search something on firefox or IE, whether it be yahoo or google or the swagbucks search page, i will get these google pop ups, or be completely redirected to an unfamiliar site. Other times I'll click a link, or attempt to go to a certain site, and google will tell me that the site cannot be found (even if I know it isn't down or busy), then redirect me upon refreshing, and then sometimes take me to the site the third time around. I got malwarebytes at the suggestion of someone, and it found a bunch of junk on my computer which I quickly got rid of, but the problem persists. I haven't found a program that can help me get rid of this thing, and it's really bothering me.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi -
This thread may be directed to "Am I Infected" forum area -
In the mean time , Make sure your Antivirus program is Fully updated and run a scan -
Also download Malwarebytes (free) from c net make sure you update it and run a quick scan -
If your redirects are too bad then you may not be able to do this -

Thank You -

I downloaded Malwarebytes and updated it, updated my antivirus and ran some scans. Some malicious files were found and deleted, yet the problem still hasn't been solved.
