Default Rerouted...

Got something that reroutes me to a random spam site usually results5 google. I have tried everything I can think of to get rid of it. Ran AVG, Avast, Malware bytes, Ad Aware and still nothing. I did a system restore and reinstalled Firefox no luck. Anyone got any suggestions?
Running Windows Xp Sp3

I think you need the rootkit stuff but I wont bother posting unless I have to do it, just tell me if it is needed.

Reset your Router by holding the reset button in it for about 10 Seconds (the little pin hole).
Then flush the dns information on your computers with the command prompt.
ipconfig /flushdns

That should work.

Arg! Hate it when that happens! Did you run all the AV/Malwarebytes software in Safe Mode?

Did you run Spybot S&D and could you also tell us the URL's that it directs you to? That sometimes can give away what the virus is and how to get rid of it.
