I had a virus on my laptop that popped up fake antivirus software. I have since run:
Smitfraudfix, MalwareBytes, SuperAntispyware, CCleaner, and Hijackthis.

It has cleaned up the fake antivirus software but every time I do a search through Google or Bing etc... it shows the search results but when I click on a link it redirects me to another site advertising something
Quite often flicks up in the address bar before it goes off to some random site.
I have tried resseting IE.

Ant Clues?
