Searches Being Redirected

Specs: Windows XP
When searching on Yahoo and Google, and trying to open links, I am being redirected to random advertising sites. I'm using Firefox 3.6.3, however, when I open search result links in the Internet Explorer rendering engine, they come up ok, just very slow. I've tried running Avast! and Spybot SnD with unsuccessful results. How do I make this stop?

Here are some things you can try:
1- Ccleaner Slim (no toolbar) cleans out excess junk on your PC.
2- Malwarebytes
3- Trojan Remover
4- Hitman Pro
Most re-directs are caused by unwanted rootkits on a PC. If there is one, Hitman Pro should remove it.
Run those untill they are clean, then you can uninstall the last 2.

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers
