First one or two links returned by google are redirected.
For instance, search for "test". First link shows "test.com" but the actual URL behind the link is (sorry for the lengthy URL)

Solved -
I was away when Avast identified a Trojan (family asked for deletion and shutdown the PC).
When I came back, I ran a complete scan, Avast identified and deleted a virus.
This is when I noticed that URLs were being re-directed.
Did some research, installed and ran Spybot Search and Destroy - Found and deleted a malware component.
But URLs were still being re-directed

Ran Hijack This and looked at the logs (there is a very convenient button for "infos" on each entry of the logs).
This is where I saw that I had extra entries in my c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file - to my surprise because I had opened the file several times already and not seen anything. Turns out that:
- the file was read-only
- the usual localhost entry was followed by a series of empty lines (to hide the actual redirects - this is why I did not see them initially) and then a series of redirections (google.com, google.au, google.co.uk, etc.) to match all possible entries for google and yahoo.

Cleanup-up the file. Saved it. Seems to work for now...
