Basically I had one of the virus/malware that pretends it's an antivirus scanner and flags up thats loads is wrong, I ran Malwarebites anti malwear and spybot search and destroy both of which found things and seemed to solve the problem, however I have now noticed that occasionally when I google search and click on a result that it'll take me to an unrelated site (usually blinx.com)

Also, Firefox seems to hang and say not responding alot, wlthough when I click exit it manages to sort itself out, I presume that these are some after effects of the infection meaning I've not removed it fully and/or correctly.
