I've seen a lot of mixed results on this such as "try this antivirus!" or "try this scan!" and I'd really rather not mess up the computer any more than it already has possibly been.
One thing I've already tried is running a full system scan with Norton which returned no results. I know a lot of people will say "switch antiviruses Norton is bad and got you here in the first place" but the damage has been done so, that's kind of irrelevant at this point. Plus, that is not my choice really.
Another thing I heard recommended was checking the "hosts" file in system32 and I did find an extra entry there that was never there before so I removed it. It had no effect, though.
The third and last thing I did so far was trying to run Kapsersky(spelling?) TDSSkiller which has fixed this for a lot of people but it scanned and found no errors.
So... what can I do here? Am I even talking about the right virus...? Btw, my computer's OS is Vista.
UPDATE WITH MORE INFO:
I am redirected every single time I click on something from google, and I think the virus is trying to block this site because often it makes me refresh multiple times before it connects. This is the error Chrome gives me:
No data received
Unable to load the web page because the server sent no data.
Here are some suggestions:
Error 324 (net::ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE): The server closed the connection without sending any data.
Oh yes, and in the bottom of chrome that shows what webpage it is loading, it says "Waiting for 30ksearches.com". So i guess that's what it's redirecting to/through
