Google Results redirect to ad sites.

Specs: Windows 7, 8 GB
Hey. Lately (for around a month or longer), links from the search results of Google ave been redirecting me to (somewhat) related ad-sites. Not all the links do this, but maybe about 1/3 of them do, and I can simply go back and try the link again to go to my desired destination. Attached is my HJT log in case it is asked for. Thanks.

I first of suggest you remove uTorrent as this is a huge source of infections world wide.
C:\Program Files (x86)\uTorrent\uTorrent.exe

Remove the following two entries.
R3 - URLSearchHook: (no name) - {266fcdca-7bb3-4da7-b3bf-f845dea2ebd6} - (no file)
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {5C255C8A-E604-49b4-9D64-90988571CECB} - (no file)

I see you have no Norton AV installed so remove this entry also.
