angy042,
----------------------------------------------
It looks like the remaining problem(s) are not related to your PC at all, but to a "hacked" router.
If the router "administrator" password is not changed when it is installed, a ZLOB or other infection can use the default password and change your router settings, so as to intercept every communication by passing it through a spyware server.
It will definitely produce redirects.
The original default password for each router is actually published : http://www.phenoelit-us.org/dpl/dpl.html

In this situation, the router has to be re-installed so the extra malware server address can be removed from the settings. (Then the router admin password can be changed)
If you can find the instructions that came with the router, it may save a bit of work.
After the router has its settings re-entered, and the password changed, you need to type this command into the Start, Run box on the PC : ipconfig /flushDNS
This erases any old memory the PC had of saved redirects.
At that point your redirect problem should be over.
