Windows 7: I have a virus. Please help

I have a virus. Please help

Hey guys,

I think I have a virus, but I can't search for how to get to it because that's where the virus gets me. Every time I search something, it shows me the results as normal, but it when I click on the results, it forwards me to what I was looking for on a site like eBay, or some other place that requires me to buy something. Because of this, I can't get help. I cannot click on any links because they forward me somewhere else. I'm running a virus and malware scan right now. In the meantime, can someone please help me figure out what's going on?

Thanks!

I can go get it. It doesn't block you from searching MSN (because nobody uses it).

I cleaned up everything. It found 10 viruses. Malwarebytes won't open, neither will Spybot S&D. All of the things I search are forwarded to any website that needs my Social Security, Credit Card, anything that will give the hacker my money. Does anyone know how to get rid of these viruses?

Ok, but I need to search live, as the main problem is that I can't search Google without being forwarded somewhere else.

MalwareBytes worked for me after my StePson infected one of our computers in a similar style to what you have. But it took 3 days of doing it over & over again. Worst thing I have ever had happen in years.
