BBCiplayer problem redirection

When with BBCiplayer on my laptop I keep being redirected to a page "ww92.btosjs.info" and an advert comes up for hair products or something I don't want. How can I get rid of this infection. I did a Norton scan & also ran Cclean but to no avail. I'm really getting hacked off with ever increasing assault of popups & re directions. Any help welcome. Also, my Win7 laptop is having problems installing update Monzilla24. This may or may not be connected.

Try running Norton again with full scan and also download Malwarebytes (free version but be careful where from) and run it in safemode. You have a browser hijack virus.

Many thanks. Malwarebytes does the trick.
