Redirect virus problem

My win7 computer got plagued with redirect viruses which rendered it almost unusable. They seat deeply in the internet browsers crome and firefox. Whenever i launch them it opens a scam start page with no way to get rid of in the settings. Also when browsing it randomly starts redirects to other scam pages, fills sites with lots of scam ads or starts installation of new software. Cant be removed in control panel, they appear there right after being uninstalled with several new ones after system restart, some are not visible there at all. It was very easy to catch them probably with installation of some simple software. Names of some of them are: crossbrowse, games desktop, smartweb shop&save and a lot more. Neither spyhunter, revouninstaller no any antivirus see them. Please help.

avast,also i tried kaspersky and some additional programs namely spyhunter and revouninstaller. the problem is they dont recognize this sht as virus because technically i think they are not virus, just malware. now it got so bad i cant even type there because of constant redirects and pop ups (using a tablet instead)
