A week or so back, I noticed that a couple of google results I clicked on did not take me to the info. Since then I have noticed it happening a lot more. Not every time, but usually a redirect after 2 or 3 tries. Sometimes, if I use the back button and try again, I go directly to the correct link. It seems to be a bit random. I use Mozilla(13.0.1) mostly, and have not had the issue on the couple of tries with Internet Explorer (9.0.8112.16421)or Chrome.

I have my system info in my profile - running Win7 64bit.

I did some research online and have tried the following:

"No proxy" setting in Mozilla (I usually use Mozilla)

Installed and ran Malwarebytes around 7/12
Uninstalled Spotify around 7/13 (this is the only change I can remember making in the time frame it started)
Installed and ran TDSkiller 7/16
Installed and ran rkill 7/16
Installed and ran FixTDSS 7/16
Installed and ran ListParts64 7/16
Installed and ran Combofix 7/16
Ran Combofix 7/17

They seem to fix the problem initially, but the next day - back again.

There are some software packages for sale that say they will remove the virus, but I don't see any guarantees.

I would say I am pretty computer savvy (at least up to Win 7 - it is still pretty new to me)

Any help would be appreciated.
