Hey.
I recently somehow obtained the google-redirect.com virus on my other computer. I've read countless articles on how to remove it, but nothing works, and my symptoms don't match the symptoms the articles describe.

The articles say that the google-redirect.com virus redirects you to an ad site when you click on a Google search result, but I'm redirected to ad websites all the time. In fact, I couldn't even post a new topic on this forum because every time I'd click on "New Topic" I'd be redirected to another ad (hence the reason I moved to this computer). Articles also mentioned that tech support websites didn't seem to work, yet every one I've clicked on works fine, and I'm also redirected on other websites that aren't related to tech support.

I've tried everything -- Malwarebytes, AdAware, CCleaner, GooRedFix, etc., and nothing works.

Can anyone help me out?

EDIT: Another symptom I've discovered is that I can only log in once on my computer before having to reboot. If I try logging off and logging back on later, my desktop won't load up and it just stalls until I reboot. Any suggestions / ideas?
