nearly every time I search on google and I click on a link, even to sites I know that this doesn't happen with, it will redirect me to a random site. I am not sure exactly what caused this but I had downloaded a few things, and I have other people on the computer downloading things, even though I ask them not to. I noticed that when I ended the process "plugin-container.exe" it doesn't redirect anymore, but then "plugin-container.exe" reappears on the processes tab and it starts redirecting again. That could just be a coincidence seeing as I don't know what "plugin-container.exe" really is. Thanks much for the help, if you have any questions about my problem just post or email me at XXXXX. Again, thanks to everyone who helps, or tries to help.

Try this:

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
