Google links redirect to wrong websites

  Richardflea 15:19 29 Apr 2010

Hello there!

The past couple days I've started to notice strange goings-on when I've been using Internet browsers (Firefox and IE).

When I do a Google search, it will bring up the search results as normal.

But most of the time, when I click on the links, I will be redirected to pages from websites such as:

etc. the list goes on!

I've ran Malwarebytes' Anti Malware and it says I have no infections.

AVG scans show no unusual behaviours.

I have a HijackThis scan I will post here
