I have encountered three possible acts of viruses on my computer:

1. The Google redirect virus, 75% of the links I click on from Google Results leads me to advertisements (homes, search engines, products, etc.).I have to click on the link 4 or 6 times before I can actually get to the site. The site it goes most often to is "mydealhero" or something similar.
2. Even when I close iTunes, it reopens itself, again and again and again, possible 3 or 4 times before it actually stops.
3. BSODs from unplugging a USB extension cable (computer just woke from Hibernate) that was not in use, right clicking iTunes in system tray, clicking on the start button, and once from unplugging my iPod from charging (computer had been on for half an hour).

If you need the logs, tell me, and I can send it as soon as possible.
Here is a list of Viruses I found with my last scan:
TrojanHorse Agent2.GUF
TrojanHorse SHeur2.ASE
Worm/Autorun
