Hi, I'm new to this forum and am asking for help ridding myself of a wicked browser redirect malware. It first start with Google search results, you could type in you search and the results would show up as normal but when you click a link to go to a result you are randomly redirected to a website that has absolutely nothing to do with what the link said it was. Now I find its not just Google or any particular search engine even if a URL is typed into the address bar it is redirected. This doesn't happen every time but a lot! I have tried several antimalware apps but to no avail.

Ive tried:
  • AVG
  • Malwarebytes
  • Spybot Search and Destroy
  • Ad Aware
I used HiJackthis and a log is as follows:
