Hello, and thank you in advance for any help that I recieve!
I am running windows 7 64 bit, and all updates are current (to my knowledge).

I use firefox, and for the past couple weeks whenever I attempt to google anything, selecting a link will sometimes result in a redirect to a different site. I use the Web Of Trust extension, so most of the time my browser blocks these sites before they load (and I do not know where these redirects lead), though one site for "stopzilla" comes up repeatedly and is not blocked.

I'm able to run malware bytes, microsoft security essentials, and super antispyware professional, but running a "complete" scan (or its equivalent) does not remove the redirect problem. All the programs appear to be up to date, according to their update logs.

Again, thank you for any help that can be offered. I'll try to reply to any advice in a timely fashion!
