Virus/Trojan? Google links not working
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?
