I seem to have a redirect now. It appears to only be with Firefox, 'cause I can't get it to replicate but I'm not certain. Here are the logs. Thanks in advance, guys.

btw, I have used Combofix and it didn't fix it though it appears to have deleted some things. I previously tried Roguekiller and it came up with five registry entries that I deleted and that didn't fix it. I also tried tdskiller and that didn't find anything.

I am also including my Combofix log.

I think I found the problem. I had an addon on there called "Performance Cache 1.0" By Identity Ltd. I did an uninstall that didn't fix the problem so I went ahead and did another, this time having it remove all "bookmarks etc etc" and it got rid of that addon. With it gone, the redirects appear to be gone. I've had that addon for a while. I don't remember where I got it.

This is a link to someone else that had that problem and had this addon.

My redirects appear to be gone. This would also explain why I didn't have problems with Internet Explorer as it was Firefox specific.
