I am getting redirected to random pages when I use the Google search bar on firefox. Iam also getting a little pop up that says congrats you one an apple pad, or something like that. Then you close it and it takes you to the weekly winner page. I have ran AVG and malwarebyetes and it hasnt helped the problem. Thank you!

Windows xp is what I have, as well.
