Both Firefox and Chrome are either redirecting or hanging with a blank page. I assume it would be a waste of time to try IE.

When I try to play a video on Vimeo I always get a hanging blank page. When I go to The Area at Autodesk.com I always get a blank page. However, I can play videos on YouTube. Various other pages without embedded video are also causing a hanging blank page.

Clicking links on a web page frequent results in a redirect. This includes links from a Google search.

Some sites I am redirected to:

mydealmatch.com

hxxp://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/help

hxxp://main.exoclick.com/click.php?data=c291cmNla25vd2xlZGdlfDh8MC42fGh0dHAlM0ElMkYlMkZleG9jbGljay40MDUzMS5ibHVlc2Vlay5jb20lMkZqdW1wMSUyRiUzRmFmZmlsaWF0ZSUzRGV4b2NsaWNrJTI2c3ViaWQlM0Q0MDUzMSUyNnRlcm1zJTNEZ3JhcGhpY3MlMjZzaWQlM0RaNTAxMDQ0MzQ3JTI1NDAlMjU0MFFNZmRqTTVNRE80SXpYMWtETmZOak1mQnpOeDhWTjBjak14SURPM0lUTSUyNmElM0Rya2JweXZweCUyNm1yJTNEMSUyNnJjJTNEMHwxNXxncmFwaGljc3wxMTQyfDUwfDEyNzgyMTI3NDV8YXRvcHJlcG9ydGVyLmNvbXwxNzMuODAuNDQuMjI5fDgtMHwwfE5VTEx8MnwxfDFkYjg4YzZhYzY2ZjBlZWQ4ZTJjOGU2YmY5NGQ0OGMz

When I am being redirected I always see "results5.google.com" in the address bar.

Running Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

I have already updated MalwareBytes' AntiMalware and then scanned in Safe Mode. It detected nothing. My AV is ESET Smart Security 4.2

EDIT---------------------------------------------

Ok, I'm biting my tongue. IE is working. However, I would think it will only be a matter of time until it is doing the same thing. I just installed Chrome a couple of hours ago and it started doing it immediately.

I just had my first appearance of a rogue antivirus appear on this machine. I think it was called Total Antivirus. MalwareBytes still detects nothing. Tried Super Antispyware and it removed a fair amount of cookies but that was it. I'm still experiencing the redirects.

I have no idea how we got this on two separate computers and reformatting them will take me quite some time. Could someone at least point me in the right direction as far as the software I should use to scan with?
