Google redirect

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I am not sure if this is the correct forum to post this.

I believe I have some sort of Trojan that is redirecting me but my SEPM 12.1 is not catching it.  When I try to go to Google it takes me to a yahoo page.  Sometimes it just says that Yahoo page cannot be found and sometimes itt akes me to a Yahoo Developer Console.  I have ran Spybot, Malware Bytes and SEPM and cannot find anything.  It does this in IE, Firefox and Chrome.  I cannot figure out what is going on.  Anyone have this happen?

Hello,

Plan of Action - 

1) Disable the System Restore http://support.microsoft.com/kb/283073

2) Disable the Browser Helper Objects on all Installed Browsers

3) Check the Host file of the machine if it has been tampered with. If yes, make the necessary changes to the host file.

4) Login to the machine as a Different User and check if this issue is occurying?

If this issue is not occurying, you may like to delete the Infected User Profile after taking a back up of necessary files.
