I'm a newbie to this site and if anyone can help guide me through how to remove a malware I would appreciate it.
Lately I have a virus or malware that has been redirecting me lately.
For example if I were to click a search result it would redirect me to weird sites like "retarded-animals.com" or stuff.
Malewarebytes also has popups saying it blocked a malicious site at IP "__________."
Can anyone give me a step by step guide on how to post my problem and possibly solve it?

Please follow these instructions: How to remove the TDSS, TDL3 rootkit using TDSSKiller

If that does not work, then download Norman TDSS Cleaner and save to your Desktop.
  • Double-click on Norman_TDSS_Cleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Read the agreement and click Accept.
  • When the program window opens, click Start scan.
  • After the scan has finished, a log file named NFix_date_time (i.e. NFix_2009-06-22_07-08-56.log) will be created on your desktop with the results.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that file in your next reply.
