Whenever i search something in google it gives the results however if i try to open the link by clicking on it it will redirect me to any different website instead of the link that i clicked on originally. I tried using firefox and chrome too but results are the same. I tried to scan my pc with malwarebytes but no infections found.
i also used trojan remover but no results.then i tried hitman pro it found some tracking cookies however when i deleted them issue was there but instead of redirecting me to another website it just opened the same google search page.
Then i tried yahoo search engine but issue remains so i concluded it is not a virus or spyware but a tracking cookie as this is the problem with all the search engines in all the browsers so can someone please guide me how to remove it manually.

Generally speaking, browser redirects are the result of malware, and I am moving the post to a different forum because of this. Are the redirects all to a few or to a single website?
