Redirect virus, random music playing in the background, help?

3 posts in this topic

I'm on XP btw. Everytime I search something in google, it takes about 6 seconds before the results actually show up. Then when I click a link, I get redirected, and then firefox prompts me to open/save a file that's just called "search". Also, I hear random music/audio go on, then when I go into the task manager, it's a random iexplore.exe process. Once I close it, the music stops, but it just randomly opens up for some reason. What do I do?
