have you run your antivirus yet?
#3
Have you tried a Spyware scan?

I have it installed on several machines to help prevent malicious software being installed.

Sounds like your hosts file has been tampered with.
Search your computer for hosts, if your using 32bit windows it should be in here:
C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts

Open that with notepad and delete everything.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hosts_(file)

Also use a tool called RKill.exe , very handy for checking if any viruses are running.

Had similar probs in the past (Antivirus2010 etc) only thing to get rid of them was "Combofix", if you use it read the how to carefully.

Had same problem recently using Google search.If you can use ask.com instead search for "Google redirect virus" it will give info on a program that I think is called hitman pro which seems to get rid of the Trojan virus.Be careful with shutting pc down though as today I have not been able to boot my lappy up at all,not even in safe mode,think I may have changed something in windows by mistake.Apologies for any typos in this,using phone to reply
