I'm at my wits end with my laptop. Two days ago, I was using Google to search information (as I normally do), but was redirected to a strange "search site". I found that, no matter which links I clicked on, I was redirected to a different site that looked sketchy. I ran McAffe, Spyware Doctor and PC Matic, which each found several trojans and then claimed to have fixed them. However, the problems have persisted. This doesn't seem to be affecting any other websites I've used thus far--just search sites such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo. With Yahoo, I'm not even redirected. Anything I click on results in this message: "502 Bad Gateway". Any help would be greatly appreciated!

My operating system is Windows 7, if that helps, and I own a Toshiba (fairly new and purchased in August).
