I have tried quite a bit of anti spyware, malware and adware programs and although getting detections and cleaning them this still is happening. I know i am infected but i have no clue what to do. The links listed on google will redirect me to a completely differrent site. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? What type of anti-virus are you using? What anti-malware scans have you done? Have you tried doing your scans in "SAFE MODE"?

If not, do so and also download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free for Home Users.

As j0nath4n noted it would be helpful to know what type of sites your being redirected to. But don't post any active links to those sites.

The sites i seem to be redirected to are other search engines. I am using windows xp home edition sp2. I have used NoAdware, microsoft antispyware, malware destroyer, and some mcafee scans. Also my home page has not been hijacked it has never changed.

So, What did Super Antispyware find?
You can also check the addons for IE (click on tools,addons) for any you don't recognize. Check the programs in the Add/Remove programs.
Google any you are not sure of before deleting.

So, what did you find in the Add/Remove program and IE addons?
The MyWay and its cohorts are probably listed in the Add/Remove programs. Did Super Antispyware remove what it found?

Also see the info in the link below. Looks like you may have a smitfraud infection. You should run the Smitfraudfix to check if Super Antispyware removed it all.

If your problem continues after using smitfraudfix, open Windows Explorer and navigate to Program Files. Do you see a folder such as?
C:\Program Files\MarketBrowser

If so, go to Start > Settings > Control Panel, double-click on Add/Remove Programs. From within Add/Remove Programs highlight "MarketBrowser" and select Remove.

Reboot, navigate back to Program Files and delete the MarketBrowser folder if it still exists - right-click on the folder and choose "Delete".

If you don't see that program, then your redirect issue could be due to any one of a number infections to include wareout.

In that case you should read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may have performed some of these steps already. If you can't perform a step, then skip and continue with the next. In step #9 there are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a log. (This is a self-extracting version which will automatically install HJT in the proper location.) Do not post a log using the Beta version by Trend Micro as there have been reported problems and it is not being used by the HJT Team.

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log in the thread titled "Haven't Had A Reply In Five Days?".

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.
