I recently got a "virus" that resulted in BSODs, even in safemode. I was able to log in and launch CCleaner in time to remove some of the malware that was running at startup and force shut down. When I rebooted I was able to run AVG and remove all the infections that it found. However now I receive redirects whenever clicking on a search engine link. This is also the second time this has happened. About a month back I read through some of the forums and was pretty sure that I removed all the malware/rootkits but for the past month have been living with the redirects. At that time I wasn't running AVG. This time AVG caught the infection but was powerless to stop it. I'm looking for help to make sure that I have everything completely removed and if there is anything to be done about the redirects.

I'm having awful problems with redirects as well. I've never had to resort to forums to remove these when I've got them - this one I have is just impossible to find through my knowledge of computers. I'm so sad!
