I use Windows 7 and for the past week or two my web browser (I use Firefox) has been giving me this trouble where whenever I use a search engine, I click on a result and I am redirected to a random web page. Occasionally instead of a web page it gives me a red screen with a some sort of message that says that the page I am trying to view may harm my computer, at which point I close my browser without clicking anything on fake message. Sometimes I am able to get to a page through a search link, but I would say that I am redirected more often than not. Here's my ComboFix log:
