I have completed the 8 steps and am still having trouble with Google redirecting my searches to various spam sites, as well as other search engines like Yahoo! and MSN. I'm also having general slowness with the computer. I've heard the Google Redirecting Virus (if that's what it is) can also prevent you from updating programs but so far I haven't had any problem updating. I've completed all 8 steps and here are my logs. Your help would be greatly appreciated! I'm running Windows XP Pro.
