Hi guys,

I am hoping you guys will be able to help me. I think I have the Google Redirect Virus on my computer because the first time I try to click on a link in Google (whether it be IE or Firefox; I don't use Chrome) for the day, it always redirects me to advertising or some weird site. After the first time, it usually is fine, but sometimes it recurs during the day. I've also noticed that sites are slower to load, and I think (may be my imagination) that some sites have additional tracking/cookie links when they are loading (like if I'm reading a newspaper site or chow.com or some usually reliable site). Some other things I've noticed: sometimes when a website is loading, it'll freeze up and a box will come up saying that there is something wrong with a script and would I like to continue or stop the script.

My computer is Windows XP and I've run Malwarebytes, but they didn't find anything. I've also run TDSSKiller without any results (no threats detected). Thanks in advance for helping me!
