My desktop computer has this Google redirect virus. Every time I do a search in google (or any other search site) and click on one of the result links I am redirected to another, less reputable search site or an advertisement site. I can't get anywhere on the web unless I type something into the address bar. At the advice of a friend I managed to disable the proxy server problem but I still keep getting redirected.
I have run the following scanners at the advice of a friend to try and fix things:
Neither Malwarebytes or AVG picked anything up. Hitman Pro did the very first time it ran and it seemed to get rid of the problem...until I restarted my computer. Now, when I run Hitman Pro I get nothing. AVG and Malwarebytes run for 2 hours (each) and pick up nothing. This was 3 days ago. I've been going in circles for 3 days, running scan after scan after scan to no avail, both in safe mode and normal mode.
I am by no means a computer expert and I'm unaware of any other programs that can help me. Please help!
