Hello All,
I'm fairly sure that my computer has been infected. I'm not sure which Trojan I have been infected with.

The main symptoms that I have noticed so far:

Cannot start Google Chrome.

On both IE(Version 8) and Firefox(3.5.15), I can perform Google search, but when I click on the search result links, my browser is hijacked and is taken to some dummy site.
For example, in IE, I googled "Reformat Windows XP". One of the links I clicked on redirected me to this URL: http://www.manufacturersdirectory.com/search-results.aspx?keywords=reformat+windows+xp

Both explorers automatically open tabs that take me to some infomercial sites. 1 Site that comes up constantly is for a free $100 Walmart gift card.

Which virus causes these issues? Any help appreciated.

Regards,
Raj
