I have a form of google redirect virus on my computer. So far I have run hitmanpro and it detected and removed a trojan, however after that I still have my searches redirected and further scans have turned up nothing. I have also run TDSSkiller, not in safe mode, and it has found nothing as well. Malwarebytes and AVG have also turned up nothing.
