    Actually, to get rid of this virus, I recommend you to do it manually. Running security program only will not help, most probably. What you need to do is to implement some manual steps first. Here they are:
    1.Check the Local Area Network (LAN) settings of your computer
    2.Check whether DNS settings have been modified by the redirect virus
    3.Check your Windows HOSTS file contents
    4.Check the add-ons of your browser. Remove unknown or suspicious add-ons available (installed)
    5.Run Kaspersky TDSSKiller (TDSS Killer) tool to remove malware belonging to the clan of Rootkit.Win32.TDSS
    6.Scan your computer with reliable anti-virus software
    7.Consider using CCleaner to delete unwanted system/temp files and browser cache
    8.The last but not the least, reset your Router back to the factory default settings
