Selecting Google search result link redirects to random ad page

  1. Problem: When I click a link from a typical Google search result list, the page does not go to that link, but rather redirects to a random ad page. I tried Mozilla, with same problems.
    I have run through the 8-step process and have attached log files here. Any help appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Hello evenpar

    Please download combofix here ->
    Before Saving it to Desktop, please rename it to to stop malware from disabling it.

    Now, please make sure no other programs are running, close all other windows.

    Please double click on the file you downloaded. Follow the onscreen prompts to start the scan.
    Once the scanning process has started please DO NOT click on the Combofix window or attempt to use your computer as this can cause the scanning process to stall.
    It may take a while to complete scanning and this is normal.

    You will be disconnected from the internet and your desktop icons/toolbars will disappear during scanning, do not worry, this is normal and it will be restored after
    scanning has completed.

    Combofix will create a logfile and display it after your computer has rebooted.
    Usually located in c:\combofix.txt, attach post it to your next reply
