My parents' Windows XP SP3 machine seems to have been infected with the dreaded Google Redirect virus, however, it does seem to act a bit differently. Instead of being redirected while doing Google searches, sometimes after clicking a link on a site the browser is sent to a Dell/Google search page with a bunch of garbage on it.

I installed Malwarebytes and quarantined 3 trojans. I ran SpyBot Search and Destroy and got 4-5 more. TDSSKiller found nothing. I ran CCleaner and also let it clean the registry. Nothing has worked. Please help.

Note: unfotunately, I will be out of town Monday-Thursday next week and unable to stop by every day to check this site. Please be patient with my slow responses.

Thanks in advance.
