    Virus/Trojan? Google links not working

    Hey folks,

    So my AVAST license ran out and within the 10 mins that it took me to renew it I picked up something nasty.

    It seems to have hijacked my IE8. Whenever I do a google search for anything, then click on the links a 2nd window opens and I've taken to some crap page trying to sell me stuff. Basically I can't use the web now.

    I've run AVAST, windows cleaner and ad-aware (all in safe mode) but the problem won't go away.

    Can someone help here?
