Have you scanned your comp with an antivirus program?

Avira Antivirus got rid of a redirecting infection that spybot, malwarebytes & comodo antivirus failed to spot on my comp.
use malwarebytes in safe mode
Yes i have it Quarantined artemis EDA835D1f072.
But i am still getting redirected to different sites i don't want.
Have you cleared all of your temporary files? Download Ccleaner if you haven't got it already, install it, close all of your browsers & run the cleaner.

Which antivirus program are you using?
I have tried Ccleaner to.
I have tried hijack this but don't really know what to do with the results
Will restoring my computer to an earlier time help?

Don't think so.

Google throws up a lot of results for Mcafee & Artemis.

Have you had a look on the mcafee forums - might be able to get better help there;
do not do any thing with HJT, you could do more damage if yuo do not know what you are doing, join tech support guy the malware section of the forum, post the ? and what you have done and a recent HJT log and they will help you, i have been helped there many times
any chance to take your hdd out and scan it in different machine as a slave drive?
could it be a dodgy toolbar?

anyways if ccleaner for reason didn't clear your temp files, go to run then type %temp% hit enter then select all and hold shift and delete everything!
