Ok, whenever I click on a link, the link will open in a new window and redirect to some random spam site. If I close this new window and then click the same link again, it will still open in a new window but it will actually go to the correct page. Also, if I click the "cached" option on Google, it goes to the correct page AND opens in the same window (which is how I would like it to work). We have talked to our internet company and they said it has nothing to do with their internet settings and it sounds like a virus (which is what I thought as well) but my parents bought a new computer and right out of the box it happened on this computer as well. Also, when I bring my laptop home from college the same thing happens, but when I go back to school it doesn't do it anymore. I have done virus scans with AVAST and Malware scans with Malwarebytes and have not found any infected files.

My parents computer has windows 7 and my laptop is still running Vista.

Thanks in advance for your help. If there is any more information you need let me know.

Are you using a wireless router in your home?
