About a week ago I became infected with a virus that when I type something in on Google and click on one of the links, it opens a new tab (sometimes it doesn't open a new tab and just redirects me on the current one) and redirects me to a website with ads. It is really annoying. Sometimes after a couple tries it will actual send me to the right website. Usually I just copy and paste the website into the address bar, but even then sometimes I get redirected. I use Mozilla Firefox, but now every couple hours Internet Explorer (which I never use) pops up with an ad. Also, sometimes Firefox and Internet Explorer will just randomly pop Up and go to Google. I quickly exit out of them but they come back later. The Google Redirect and the Internet Explorer Pop Ups are the only noticeable problems right now, but it may also be effecting my internet connectivity and how fast my computer is, but it might be a coincidence. My computer sometimes says it can't load the page, and then I try to refresh and the next time sometimes it will work and others it still won't. My computer also seems to be running slower. I currently have Microsoft Security Essentials and McAfee (the free one) installed. Security Essentials keeps popping up and saying that I am infected and I click "Clean Computer". After a couple of minutes, it says the computer was successfully cleaned. But either it's not really removing it or the virus keeps branching out or there was just a ton of viruses...because it removes like 10 a day, and they're all the same kind, and it says they are severe. The type is TrojanDownloader:Win32/Renos.JW. I have tried to remove this virus, but it's not working. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. I have tried TDSSKiller and ComboFix, because I thought the virus was a TDSS based on articles online. This is getting really annoying. If anyone has had a similar experience or just knows how to get rid of this virus, please help me. I don't know too much about computers, so you'll have to be specific. Thanks.
