After doing numerous malware and spyware scans I'm still having probles with search engines. I've tried troubleshooting and I can;t go any further. When I ran the anti-malware(MalwareBytes) and anti-virus(Avira) programs I'm still having the problem of search engine links being redirected to ad sites. For example when type "Black and White drama" and the site is a legitimate, it does not bring me to the site itself but to some ad page. The only way I could go to that page is to copy link location and post it in a new tab.
I did scans in safemode with Windows Defender and it found one Trojan but it's already deleted. When I ran Malware Bytes, it deleted 6 trojan/malware, and when I run Avira, it deleted 3 suspcious files. Despite these, I still have the problem. I also deleted my temp folders via CC Cleaner and still have the same problem.
I hope someone professional could help me here. Is this some sort of undetected malware/virus/trojan/spyware? It looks like quite a lot of people are having this problem or something similar.
By the way, I am using Windows XP
