I'm not sure which ad actually hijacked my browser though because I accidently clinked the link that hijacked my browser. I wasn't even looking at the ad.

Someone I know (not me) did a dumb thing by downloading some "coupon" site software off some pop-up ad. Yep, they got the dreaded Conduit virus. Even after they followed my suggestion of downloading Malwarebytes (which was a chore as conduit apparently tried it's best to block it), doing a 9 hour scan (including rootkits) and locking conduit away, it screwed things up so badly they could not access the internet at all, much less even run other basic software. In the end the local Geek Squad had to operate. I hope the "inferno" has a special circle just for those who foist this malware upon us.

The Searchsbay.com browser hijacker will change your browser search provider to http://searchsbay.com, which will redirect to search result pages from http://search.yahoo.com. This is most likely done to generate advertising revenue by using Yahoo Search for its search results.

It is possible that the Google Redirect virus has modified your PC’s HOSTS file. The Windows HOSTS file contains a list of computer IP addresses which is accessed whenever a user types in a web address to their browser. The browser will check the HOSTS file to see if the typed address exists in the HOSTS file and if so, direct the user to the relevant site. If the address doesn’t exist in the HOSTS file, the browser will ask the user’s ISP DNS server for the web address and once obtained will direct the user to the site.

Download Microsot Security essential and have a full scan. It removed the virus. It was rootkit alureon virus. I had problem w. google redirect virus and tried to fix it for many days. Could not do any search cause I got redirected, got music and commercial playing while surfing, pc was so slow and it was very frustating. I tried avast, Hitman 3.5, malwarebytes and avg but none of them worked. Avast kept blocking the trojan virus, but it didnt not remove it. I couldnt find tdds file either on my laptop as what Bomp suggested. Now I use MS security essential as my antivirus. I used to like avast but not anymore.

Installation of browser-hijacking software can be prevented by taking two simple steps. Firstly, most apps are concealed within the 'Custom/Advanced' download or installation steps and, therefore, you should closely analyze each step of these processes. Secondly, bundled software is mostly malicious - never accept offers to download or install additional programs and opt-out of those already included.

I was finally able to fix the issue by removing an infected .sys file. You can find the details and video tutorial in the mentioned link http://atechjourney.com/google-redirect-virus-remove-manually.html/
