My PC has had this virus for weeks and no program seems capable of helping. When I search on Google or any other search site, the appropriate links come up but when I click on them they direct to a shopping or other commercial site. I purchased an upgrade to my McAfee anti-virus, hoping it would help but it found nothing. Called McAfee customer support and they offered to assist me with removal for $200. Can I get help?

Check your routers DNS settings alot of times it will get injected with a spam DNS address you need to change it back to automatic.

The routers settings are on automatic, so that is not the problem. What to do from here?

I was able to remove the problem by downloading and running Microsoft Security Essentials. I advise others to try it also before doing any serious messing around.
