Hi there, While working on a sound effects site, I somehow downloaded malware to my Mac. Now, every time I do a google search (in the address bar, and also in the google search bar, which I've since just removed), the google search results no longer come up. Instead, I'm redirected to a search engine called: http://search.primeinfospot.com/?tp1=dbc19016-3c27-4231-bf81-d50a9c367fda&kw=sarch

Going through my search history when this happened, it seems it came out of this "Browser Update" (here's the start of the site, removing all the gobbly gook that followed it but maybe but don't click on it to be safe?)
