Google search redirects to other sites

Specs: Windows XP
For about a week now everytime that I use google the links redirect to other websites that are unrelated to the search. I've used Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware but neither came up with anything. Is there any program that I can use to fix this problem?

Download Gmer.exe from the following link.


1. Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.

3. Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
4. Note: If you downloaded the zipped version, extract the file to its own folder such as C:\gmer and then double-click on gmer.exe.
5. GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic quick scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)

7. Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
8. When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.

•Exit GMER and re-enable all active protection when done.
