Search providers keep redirecting me to ads!

So alittle while ago I noticed that a few times when a clicked on a link on google, it sends me to ads such as:, and alot more. I tried using bing but it still kept redirecting me. I was hoping you guys could help me fix this problem, I included my registry from HijackThis. Any feedback you guys give is appreciated, I always go to Tom's whenever there's a tech issue I can't figure out. Thanks

More about search providers redirecting
  1. Run through the guide in my signature.
  2. This is not Google's fault, you have the Google Redirect Virus - a very vicious computer virus and it is not only redirecting you to strange websites but some of these websites can install their malware/spyware software on your PC and harm it or worse - steal your personal information.

    You can read more information about this virus and learn how to remove it permanently from here -

    Good Luck!
