Hiyaz, :thumbsup:
Ive got a wee problem with my internet deciding to redirect itself every so often when i click on search links (I solely use googles search engine).

It redirects me to sites such as;
nthgegrnaioo.com (which quickly changes to the following)
genieknows.com etc.

This tends to happen on not as popular sites, i.e. very rarely if never on Facebook etc, but quite frequently on other popular sites such as gamestation.
I'm usually quite the dab hand at fixing technology related problems but this ones gotten me frustrated, as i can barely even search for answers due to its interuptions.

Ive tried various things such as;
Disk clean up (Temp files, history etc)
McAfee scan
Spybot: Search and destroy scans
Malwarebytes Scan (Which frequently showed up a virus under the name of "XML" which couldnt be removed, even manually deleting the registry key, although i think i may have gotten rid of this previously)
TDSS Killer (Was very reluctant to use this, rightfully so, have had a few error messages popping up since, think ive deleted a semi-important file)

I can provide Malewarebyte logs and HiJackThis if theyre required
Thank you, if anyone can give me a wee point in the right direction
