virus not detected by scan


I just installed McAfee Antivirus Plus 2010.  I ran a full scan but it did not pick up a bothersome virus I have.  I believe it is called Triplexfeed.  When you use Google to search for something and click on a site, it get redirected to a totally different site.  McAfee didn't find it during the scan, so how can I get rid of this?

    I would like to know the following things:

    When you have done a full scan of the system, was your computer connected to the internet ? If you feel that one of the exe files ot file is causing the problem , please zip the file and password protect it with password- infected and send it to via email. They would release a .dat file in hours and then you could do a full scan again and clean your system.
