I have more of an annoyance than a large problem. Links in Google search results commonly redirect to other (most likely adware) search sites. I have and constantly use MBAM, Spybot S&D, Ad-Aware, AVG 9.0 (free version), and Hitman Pro 3.5. Over the past 3 weeks, these have removed something like 4-6 Trojans and numerous cookies, but still redirecting. Also, Hitman reported 'sdhcinst2.dll' as a rootkit, but cant seem to remove it. Any help is appreciated, and thank you for your time!

Hello again,

I think I have encountered a new breed (or variation) in a rootkit. I couldn't find any trace of this name in any database, but this seems to have been the cause of my problems. Below is the Hitman log showing mentioned rootkit in blue text near the bottom. If anyone else is having the Google redirect problem, try Hitman Pro, so far its been quite successful in the finding and removal of a problem overlooked by many other programs. Name was sdhcinst2.dll in system32.
