I have the dreaded redirect virus that seems to be infecting everybody. I am running windows 7, and whenever I try to visit a website via search I am taken to one of a few different weird pages. The web address remains the address for the page I am trying to visit, but the page that is displayed is somethign different. if I try to refresh the page I'll get a different weird webpage (they all seem to be ads) but they go through a cycle. This happens when I search through google or yahoo. If i type a page directly, however, it will come up fine.
I have webroot antivirus with spysweeper. I have malwarebytes antimalware but I can't get it to run; I keep getting error messages. I have tried running rkill in order to get mbam to run, but when I start rkill I get a couple of error messages and then it opens and starts to run, but gets stuck at the "be patient" line. It never seems to progress past that point.
What next? Thanks in advance!
