Since this event, my computer started to behave slow, so I immediately went to task manager and searched for the culprit. I did not have Internet Explorer running any more, but I saw an instance of iexplore.exe running still at high CPU. I immediately thought I had been infected and began to look for other symptoms before closing the instance. I unmuted my sound and turned it up, and sure enough, there was a advertisment playing for Sony music. It was an ad for a Leonard Cohen CD or something. I killed the instance, downloaded Combofix, stopped my antivirus and let it run. Nothing. I then searched this site for other methods of cleaning up issues that sound like mine, but I haven't been able to remedy it.
I am also getting search redirects now, so when I search google for something and click a link, it brings me to http://188.8.131.52/. I can copy the link and paste it into the address bar and it goes to the page with no issues, but clicking the link causes the redirect.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
