My Google and Yahoo results (and some others, at times) are being redirected the first 4 or 5 times I click. Beyond that, they go through. I'm also getting occasional webpages loading (or attempting to) without clicking on anything. I've run Spyware Doctor (cleared up some issues), Malware Bytes (got some others) and Spybot S&D. All are now coming up clean, but the problem persists. I've done a HJT scan, but wasn't sure what to do with the results, so I've come here for help. Currently I've got the No Scripts add-on to firefox, which is helpful in keeping things at bay. Suggestions?

Thanks, one rootkit infection found and removed. That seems to have taken care of the re-directs. Time will tell about the random popups.
