I'm having an issue related to the internet, search bar, and search engine. Anytime I try to do a search for something, it is always redirected to some random site. Sometimes that site is redirected again to yet another random site. As it's redirecting, I notice it will flash something like google-analytics or drvrt (or something very similar). This also happens whenever I type in a specific address. Sometimes it takes 2 or 3 tries before I can even view a site. This has also occured when I'm on a site and have been on a site for awhile - all of a sudden my browser will just redirect itself to another site. Occasionally it will pop up a box (like a security msg) saying that my computer may be at risk. When I try to exit out of that, it opens up a page that looks like XP Control Panel and proceeds to start "scanning". I always close my browser when this happens so another box opens up asking if I'm sure I want to leave the page. I noticed that all of this started happening after I moved so I wasn't for sure if the network I am using now has anything to do with it or not. But I'm not for sure since my boyfriend dosen't seem to be experiencing the same problems on his computer.

I have Avast Virus Protection (paid version) and Malwarebytes (not totally familiar with how to use it yet) and I've scanned my computer hundreds of times and it never finds anything. I even installed something I used to use on my old computer called Bazooka Scanner. It's the only scanner that I've used that has detected something, but someone pointed out Bazooka was made to be used for XP and I have Windows 7 so it may not be accurate. I have searched everywhere, tried many different things and the problem still persists. Can somebody please help me figure out what's going on and help me put a stop to it? Also what can I do to help prevent this from happening in the future? I'm afraid it's going to damage my system which is barely a year old.
