I am pretty savvy at disinfecting systems.  Usually it's my parents, sisters, unlces, etc.  However, this time it is mine.  I have some odd redirect going on.  It is not in Google or redirecting other searches.  It mostly happens on GT when clicking on tabs in the forum.  I have occasionally seen it on other sites while  I surf but on most sites it never happens.  It doesn't do it all the time either.  Maybe 1-3 times every session of web surfing.  On GT it happens usually within the first couple of clicks on the website.  It doens't feel very malicous but is certainly annoying but not crippling. Tried Malware Malbytes, Spybot and MS security essentials but nothing is showing up.  Google is doing nothing for me as all it talks about is the google redirect virus which  I have already conquered.   I'm stumped.

Vista 32 bit.

I made GT an untrusted site on noscript firefox addon and Adblock and they went away.  I have to turn it back on whenever I want to red a spoiler tag but at least no more redirects.
