Hey, when i use google and Yahoo, the searches come up fine. But when i click on one of the results, I am taken to some random websites that have nothing to do with my search. Any help would be appreciated

Hello Asian_Maradona and welcome to BC :thumbsup:

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.

PLEASE DO NOT NOW POST LOGS unless a log is specifically requested.

In order to assist you, we need more information.

What is your operating system: Windows XP, Vista, etc.?

What browser are you using when the redirections occur?

What kinds of randoms sites are you redirected to? Please do not post live links.

What security programs do you have installed?

Are you experiencing other issues with your computer such as pop-ups? Please be as specific as you can.

I use Windows XP, and the redirections occur on both Internet Explorer, and also Mozilla Firefox.
The sites i am redirected to are not ever shown. It only shows the change on the search bar. For example, if i am trying to go onto a soccer website, the site name will change at the top of the screen to something else, but nothing appears on the screen. One specific site that always occurs is traveluntilyoung.com or something like that.
I have Spybot Search and Destroy installed, as well as AVG antivirus.
As for popups, they occur frequently when i try to use the internet, but my computer runs normal when i do not open IE or firefox

I also have Malwarebytes, and have run all of the programs listed above as well

Hello would you please run..
Please download GooredFix and save it to your Desktop. Double-click Goored.exe to run it. Select 1. Find Goored (no fix) by typing 1 and pressing Enter. A log will open, please post the contents of that log in your next reply (it can also be found on your desktop, called Goored.txt). Note: Do not run Option #2 yet.
