Help With Albireo Virus

I recently got hit with the Albireo Virus that semi-hijacks any website that resembles a place to purchase something. It randomly places ads on the page. When you click on them or 'X' them out they redirect you to several pages. I have run my Spyhunter and other malware software and it doesnt notice anything. I followed all of the online websites on how to remove it however, my problem is that I cannot find anything related to program by name. By name, it isn't on the computer. My uninstaller, Microsoft's uninstall show nothing about this nuisance. I understand this is one of the toughest to eliminate but it is a pain. Any help would surely be welcome.

Did you try MBAM's Junkware Removal Tool?

Well gentlemen, I have tried both of your suggestions and still no removal. This is by far the worst virus I have ever contracted on a PC or laptop. Driving me nuts.

No detections by either suggestion? Which browser do you use?

Well after removal it would appear that you must "refresh" Firefox.

State if any removal tools you used found and removed any detections.

Not that I am aware of. The problem is that I can't locate it anywhere on the computer. I have not seen anything on any removal that remotely resembles it by name or other.
