Google Search Links Being Redirected

June 15, 2010 at 20:01:57
Specs: Windows XP

Everytime i search something in google or any
search engine, the links are redirected to a
spam site, mainly traffic-incidents.com. I have
tried several different solutions, malwarebytes,
deleting the proper environmental variables,
etc. i have tried it in safe mode and normal and
neither has produced any sort of resolution. i
have ran ad-aware, avg, windows defender,
symantec, spybot and nothing has cured this
problem.
