You can send the link to avast using the usual virus(at)avast(dot)com email address.

I tried this at home and it didn't go anywhere other than google and displayed the search results, from hit 31 (page 2).

With google redirects and firefox you probably want to check out this (general canned script, but you would probably be able to check the log yourself and or run it again with option 2).

GOOGLE.GOORED - Firefox popping up ads and or google search redirects.

Please download GooredFix and save it to your Desktop.
Double-click Goored.exe to run it.
Select 1. Find Goored (no fix) by typing 1 and pressing Enter.
A log will open, please post the contents of that log in your next reply (it can also be found on your desktop, called Goored.txt).
Note: Do not run Option #2 yet.

Also see, you need to register (free) at the forum to view topics though.
