I have a Google redirect virus which redirects every hit I click on in every search engine, in every browser, to a completely unrelated website. No anti-virus software I've tried can get rid of it. Help.

Basically the Google redirect virus is caused by a trojan with rootkit capability, and so whenever I click on a link on Google, it redirects me to a completely unrelated site. I think I got it on there because of downloading pirated software (patches, cracks, keygens) to avoid paying: so stealing software didn't pay off :(
I know you guys aren't specialised in internet security, but can you help?

I guess I had this rootkit too. I used a tool called tdsskiller and I think it did the trick. Now I can use Google without these annoying redirects. I also found the removal instructions given at http://deletemalware.blogspot.com/2010/02/remove-google-redirect-virus.html to be very useful.

I see a few solutions and it involves paying for software. Plus I see some people who try the different programs and nothing happens. So I'm not going to pay for anything unless there is some sort of money back guarantee.
This gets rid of the addresses that the redirects call on for direction. But what is giving the commands to cause the redirects to happen?
I fixed this problem by removing temporary Java files and programs. In Windows 7 - Start -> Control Panel -> Programs -> Java -> Temporary Internet Files (bottom pane of first panel) -> Settings -> Delete Files -> OK. No more redirect problems. YMMV, but it's a pretty harmless thing to try as a quick first step. Takes about 30 seconds.
