All Google search results redirect me to a random ad website. How do I get rid?

My google is acting up... Looks like I have a virus that redirects all the Google results to advert websites!

I'm on Google Chrome (not sure if it makes a difference)... Just wanna know if theres any way of removing it without sending it off to a repair shop and costing me a bomb.

    Google Redirect Virus

    --------------------

    Restart your machine in Safe Mode with networking (hit F8 at start time)

    Disable SpyBot TeaTimer if you have it

    Download and run TDSSKiller, follow the instructions here

    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remo...

    Download these to your desktop

    Malwarebytes: http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

    ComboFix http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix...

    before running them, change their names

    Malwarebytes: mblah.scr

    ComboFix: comfix.exe

    Then run Malwarebytes (mblah), and clean everything it says.

    Then run ComboFix (comfix), and clean everything it says. Do not click the mouse or interrupt ComboFix as it is working If it tells you to reboot your machine during the process, do so immediately.

    Yes you've just hit by a virus which redirects you to other sites rather than what your'e searching for, the best way is to start in safemode and remove the file.

    it is an endemic/ malware. attempt scanning your pc with malware removers or trojens etc.. you are able to acquire them for loose from google, like Spybot serahc and destory, Avast anti virus. etc etc. an consumer-friendly one is AVG.

    Did you recently install something? It's probably malware.
