**When I search in my google search box on my tool bar I get redirected to an oriental language page:

I used a few anti virus programs to clean my PC, the problem is still present.

I'm not a specialist and don't provide you any help, but I think it would help the one who will help you, if you will explain here if is set as homepage in your internet browser or not, and if this redirection is happen only with or other sites too. If is your homepage, you should check if it was changed.
Good luck!

Check your addons. Check your plugins. Check extensions. (If you are using firefox)
Open firefox

My uncle had an addon called xxxtools. Whenever you go to a website via firefox it would download the website itself as .html, .cgi, .php, .xml file.
I disabled the addon then deleted it, afterwards...his firefox was working fine.

If that doesn't work, you may need to run your anti spyware programs.

Hello guys,

First of all, I would recommend you read the three posts at the top of this topic. If you still have issues you can start a new post and provide us with the HijackThis log.
