Hello peoples, I really hope someone can help me, because this is getting annoying. A week or so ago, I started getting redirected to different sites when I clicked on a link (mostly links on google, but I think a couple on different sites, not sure). A couple of days ago, this got worse when I got a pop-up (in the browser tab) saying my computer is infected with malware and I need to download Spyware Removal (pretty sure that's the name)... this happens on like 20% of all the redirects I'm getting. I clicked cancel, but the next time my computer booted, I had a new background with a bunch of crap saying I'm infected. Spyware Removal was in the task tray thing, and if I did anything,like control+alt+delete it said the thing is infected and had closed it. I had to boot in safe mode and scan to get rid of it. The redirect thing is still going on, and I just got a pop-up telling me my computer is infected (again, same thing) for the first time after getting rid of the thing. I'm not sure what to do at all. I tried scan, but that doesn't get rid of the redirect thing, tried system restore, next button won't work, tried manually removing it, but can't find the [bleep] redirect virus. Please someone help me, I don't know what to do! Tell me if I should post a hijack this log, or something. Thanks =)
