I recently came down with AV Security Suite which I thought I finally got rid of. However, when I attempt to follow google links my browser gets hijacked and takes me to a completely different site. The address bar always has a symbol that looks something like a "2" before the http:. Also, at random times another seperate IE tab or window will open with a different website each time.

I have run Malwarebytes, Loaris, Spybot and Adaware in an attempt to get rid of the annoying offender but they all seem to be coming up with nothing at this point.

I have Windows XP.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
