Looks like I am yet another victim of google redirecting to fake sites

I have adware, and malwarebytes and symantec antivirus detect and clean some viruses. But still have problems.
Here is my Hijackthis log. Please help

More Info with logs and quarantined files from MBAM, ADWARE, Symantec. The issue I have is that the first search result from Google directs to the right URL, the second attempt redirects to a some fake site

Hope this helps to narrow down
