I have gotten something on my computer recently, and I am having problems getting it off. When I do a search in a search engine, I will sometimes be redirected to another fake search site. It will usually redirect through multiple sites, such as "whattoseek.net" or "multifreedom.com".

Also, at the same time, I began having issues with updating windows. It seems that every time I go to shut down the computer, Windows will have updates to install. I know that Windows will sometimes need to be updated, but I don't think that it will need to be updated every time I shut down, including as many as 19 updates that it was to install one time. I don't know if this is related to the other problem, but they both started around the same time.

Nothing I can find can seem to get rid of this malware.

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
