Well after reading all these posts and trying to find a fix to this redirect i have found the solution. i have tried to reply to some ones post but i am not aloud to. v.v silly.

ok so here it is and it is simple every tech will now bang there head against the desk

Go to the Control panel.
Go to Network Connections.
Right click on “Local Area Connection” and select properties.
Scroll down in the center area and select “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click on the properties button.
Look for “Obtain DNS server address automatically” and make sure that is selected. I am aware that some users do have specific DNS servers and/or IP addresses so be sure to verify this with your IT/computer specialist.
That should solve the redirect issue.

Thats right people it just changed your DNS settings....... dont feel bad i spent hours on this to

You should still proceed to find the Trojan and get rid of it but after doing this and scanning with a few different tools i show nothing.
i think it just changes your DNS settings and goes away. so your anti virus will not pick it up.....

Hey, just wanted to lend some credence to your claim.

I tried this out and the redirect stopped, everything seems to be working fine. Thanks for the help!

You should still do scans though for malicious software, Safety.live.com has a great scanner and Malwarebytes is a great malware removal tool. Otherwise, your DNS redirection issue is fixed, and there could still be active infections on the machine.
