Whenever i search in google, yahoo, or live and click on the search link, i am being redirected to a different site. I ran adware, spybot, and avast scans, they picked up some malware and viruses which removed, but my links still are redirected.

Re-direction is ALMOST ALWAYS caused by malware issues...Even though you have run a few scans with IMHO good products they may or may not pick up every sign of infection. I would open up a new topic here:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/

Let the experts there guide you in the removal of what may be causing this issue....I would also highly recommend that you limit your use of the internet until this issue is resolved as someone may be stealing valuable information from you without you even knowing about it...
Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?
