I may've picked up some adware/spyware on my internet trollings, every google search redirects to some random site (no porn yet). My browser has also been slowed down significantly, the virus generated a svchost.exe process in system32/drivers, I was able to delete and quit the process, but the google redirects and slowness continues to occur. I've run both McAfee and Ad-Adware 2008 without success. The virus seems to block known antivirus websites, as I cannot visit Trend Micro, or Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware websites, as well as others.


I've been reading through a similar thread and it seems a few others are having the same problem (go.google.com), and no solution has been posted yet..
