Whenever I try to search something on google I keep getting redirected to a site called http://109.206.160.225/click.php. Is this a virus?

I used a site to check the safety of that one and it said it isn't safe, so I recommend running an anti-virus program.

I figured out that I may have a google redirect virus, has anyone else had this before? If so how can I remove it?

I used the origin of the problem to help me find some information about the origin of the problem; it rendered a result called Google Redirect Virus Removal Guide. Follow these steps provided by Google themselves to get rid of the mallware virus. =)

(Note: I moved the thread to the Support Forum as it is better suited there.)
